  • Prep the pizza crust by partially cooking it, per individual recipe instructions.
  • In a separate cast iron skillet, sauté the onion in the olive oil.
  • Then add the ground beef and garlic powder to the skillet with the onion, and cook until the beef is cooked thru.**
  • Once the meat is cooked, drain any grease off the meat. 
  • Mix the ketchup and mustard together in a small bowl.
  • Begin layering each pizza crust with a layer of ketchup and mustard.***
  • Add a layer of the cooked ground beef mixture.
  • Next add a layer of both shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
  • Finally, finish it off with a layer of dill pickle slices on each pizza.
  • Once your pizza is in place on the grill, I’d recommend heating the cast iron lid over the coals and then placing it on top of the cast iron pan. This creates an oven like effect, which in turn, will bake your pizza (see notes about rack placement over the fire).
  • Cook the pizza for about 8-10 minutes or so, until the crust begins to turn slightly golden on the edges and the cheese completely melts.
  • When it's fully cooked, remove the pizza from the fire, slice it up, and serve.


*You can use dill pickle slices, or you can even chop up the pickles, to suit your taste.
**Be sure that your tripod rack is not too close to the fire because if not careful, you can burn either the meat or the bottom of your pizza crust when you go to cook the pizza. Your campfire should have a little flame but be mostly burning coals. 
***It's important to note that the layered ingredients need to be split between 2 10-inch pizza crusts.
