Hobo Pizza Boats

Recommended Posts

Always overplan this meal. Everyone eats more of these than they would expect.

  • Hoagie rolls or similar
  • Pizza sauce (If you want to make your own: 6 oz. tomato paste, 6 oz. water, 2 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 tsp. basil)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Whatever you want on top (precooked)

These are just like hobo/tin foil dinners. Make a pizza boat and wrap it with aluminium foil. One layer is enough but make sure it's sealed. Make a bed of coals, preferably from hardwood. Any coals that are still flaming are too hot and will burn the bread. Bake about ten minutes, flipping when half-done.

we did this last year and it was great!. what we found is in the fresh bakery section of Wal-Mart there were loaves of italian bread for $1. cut it in 1/2 and you get 2 very large pizzas per loaf. We even picked most of the dough out of the bread and to have a thinner crust. It was a very easy and inexpensive meal for a large group. Plus dishes were minimal!

This recipe is a hit with our pack and troop.  I showed it to them a couple years ago.   Hardest part is getting the cheese on top to melt without burning the bottom of the bread.

Pita bread can also work well for this.

So do flour tortillas.  The scouts then call 'em "pizzadillas"
