 French Bread Pizza ~ Easy Make Ahead Camping Recipe

When I go camping I like to have easy meals, but I also like to have warm hearty meals that will fill my kids tummies.  I love camping recipes that can be prepped and made ahead of time, this is one of our families favorite campfire recipes. These french bread pizzas can be made before you even leave for your trip, I like to then freeze them. Keep them in the cooler and then when you are ready to cook them toss them right on the coals of the fire to cook.

camping menu recipe ideas, french bread pizza made on the campfire, camping hacks, dinner ideas for outdoor cookingTo make this recipe you will need:

  • French Bread (or mini french bread loaves)
  • Softened cream cheese
  • Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pizza or marinara sauce
  • Pizza toppings ( pepperoni, canadian bacon, olives, pineapple, mushrooms, bell peppers, sausage)
  • Aluminum Foil (heavy duty)
  • Gallon sized ziploc bags (to store them in)

Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on top of the cream cheese. Layer your pizza toppings and cheese, add the top back on your french bread. Wrap with heavy duty foil, I like to make sure it is wrapped at least two times. This helps it heat more even and avoid being burned.

I store these in a large gallon ziploc bag, since ice in coolers often melt and leak. The ziploc back will help keep them dry until you are ready to cook them. I then put them in the freezer,  before the ice chest orcooler to help keep them cool on your trip.  Make sure they are thawed before you put them on the fire to cook. It is best to put them on the coals of the fire (instead of the flames). Turn them a few times to help them cook evenly, about 5-8 minutes on the fire and you should have a hot and yummy french bread pizza!

That looks like a great way. I had cooked mine in a foil pan and wrapped tinfoil over the pan. Plus I just had half loaves. This is a great idea though.
