Campfire Pizza Pockets

I know!  WHAT!  No dessert recipe?  Well, contrary to what you may believe, we don’t just eat desserts when we go camping.  It make appear that way.  I mean, we’ve posted some pretty great camping dessert recipes, like:

Campfire Cinnamon Rolls

Campfire Apple Pies

Dough Boys (Oh My!)

Campfire Raspberry Pop Tarts

Campfire Eclairs

Well, okay.  So I guess we like to treat ourselves when we’re camping.  But don’t they look good?

We did make some amazing Pudgy Pies in our pie irons that weren’t desserts.  Like:

Our Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

And these delicious Campfire Pizza Pockets.

You can make them with whatever filling you want.  My kids like cheese and Canadian Bacon so that’s what we brought with us.  But mushrooms and ham or spinach and feta and chicken would be amazing!

Spray your pie iron with non stick cooking spray and put a layer of pizza dough in one side.  Add some sauce and cheese and your filling.

Put another layer of pizza dough over the filling and pinch the sides together.

Grill them in your pie irons over the fire, flipping them often so they don’t burn.

  1. Admittedly, I am not a big camper so my camping recipes are limited to smores and maybe some pancakes. That being said, these look delicious!

  2. Mmm! I wonder if this would work for all vegetarian ingredients…I’m thinking a Mediterranean style campfire pizza pocket — with some Italian meat added for my carnivore hubby.
    The apple pie one looks fabulous…how in the world did I miss that recipe? Too busy lately I guess…

    • Thanks, Aimee. They would be wonderful with all veggies! Thanks for stopping by =o)

    I haven’t made pudgy pies in forever! It is crazy how you could make the same thing in the kitchen, but it would taste nowhere near as good as if you had cooked it out over a campfire.

  8. These look fantastic! I love finding new things we can have while camping. Thanks for the share!!

  9. These look so good. This summer has been on the cool side around here, so we’ve been having cookouts in the back yard over the fire pit. Definitely have to try this recipe! Yum! (I’m tweeting and pinning, too) Have a lovely day!

    • Thanks, Kris! I wish we had a fire pit for the backyard so we could cook all summer outside. How fun. Hope you enjoy these.

    We don’t camp too often – but I love this pizza pocket idea! I may need to find a way to do this in out backyard this Fall 🙂
