There are some food items that remain at the top of the “A” list throughout the years. Some tasty creations have their moment in the spotlight then fade away, but others continue to shine brightly. One such scrumptious item is an authentic pizza pie with all the toppings.

To show appreciation for this time-honored slice of culinary heaven, October is designated as National Pizza Month.

What this means for pizza aficionados is communities and pizza restaurants in cities around the US will be celebrating with special activities and deals. This is a win-win and, best of all, National Pizza Month runs through October 31, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy a slice.

For RVers, you can take advantage of local activities and restaurants paying homage to this luscious pie or make your own and enjoy with friends, family, and other travelers around a roaring campfire.

Pepperoni Pizza

Ingredients needed for this campfire favorite is 1 lb of refrigerated pizza dough, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, 1/2 cup thinly sliced pepperoni, 1/4 cup of your favorite pizza sauce and a pizza stone.

  • Place the pizza stone on a grill over a wood fire. Spread the wood around so the flames are at an even consistency and not too tall.
  • Roll out the dough and place on the stone. Cook for 10 minutes until brown.
  • Remove from the fire. Flip the dough over so the cooked side is up. Spread with sauce leaving a 1/2 inch area around the rim without sauce.
  • Add the mozzarella evenly.
  • Add the pepperoni.
  • Place the pizza – uncooked side down – on the stone. Create a tent with aluminum foil to cover the pizza.
  • Place on the grill and cook for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove and place on a cutting board. Let cool before slicing.

Backcountry Pizza

  • Place dough in a cast iron skillet and cook over fire for about 10- 20 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce, pepper jack cheese, sun dried tomatoes and pepperoni or salami. Let cook until cheese is melted.

Make your plans for an October outing and include a pizza party to celebrate the pie. Before leaving, stop by PleasureLand RV Center for a service check and any accessories you need to make the trip a tasty one.
