Create delicious Campfire Pizza Bread in a foil pan with this easy camping recipe. Each person can make their own pan.

You likely stumbled up this blog via our two most popular posts, which happened to be recipes cooked over the campfire in a foil pan. One of those is our Campfire Nachos and the other is S’mores Nachos.

One of the benefits of these foil pan recipes is that they can be individualized according to a person’s preferred tastes. They also make for easy clean-up. See how you can individualize Walking Taco Nachos.

Campfire French Bread Pizza Recipe

Our love of toasted bread dipped in pizza sauce inspired this recipe. Much like breadsticks dipped in marinara out at the campground. But this is even easier!

Start with a whole loaf of bread. Several varieties of bread can be used in this recipe. French, Italian, or sourdough are all great options. Sometimes we use a hearty loaf of homemade bread.

Garlic bread is another option. Although, we recommend that frozen garlic bread be defrosted before it goes in the pan.

Pizza sauce, shredded cheese, and your favorite toppings round out this recipe.

How to Make Camping Pizza in a Foil Pan

Start this recipe by cutting the loaf of bread into bite-sized cubes. One loaf of Italian bread is enough for two small pans.

8″ by 8″ foil pans are the perfect size for individual servings of this pizza bread recipe. We get them at Dollar Tree. Buy extra pans and make Peach Crisp for dessert.

Next mix pizza sauce with the cubed bread in a pan. Top with the desired amount of shredded cheese. Add any toppings you want.

We recommend that you make this recipe with one layer of bread. More layers will result in soggy bread.

Cooking Campfire Pizza Bread

Cover the foil pan with a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, crimping it around the edge of the pan.

Lastly, place on a grate over the campfire and bake for 10-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bread is crispy.

The best cheeses choices are shredded mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar, or an Italian pizza blend. One time we made this foil pan pizza bread recipe with an herb ricotta cheese mixed in and it was fantastic!
