Campfire skillet Pizza

Pizza is a family favorite for just about everyone. If you don’t like pizza. I am sorry. Life must be so sad for you… Here is a way to bring that classic treat to the campsite. Bring your favorite toppings and pre-made sauce in your cooler. Premade pizza dough keeps it simple. Prep your toppings. Put it all in an iron skillet with an iron skillet and in about 10 minutes and you are ready to eat!
