Servings: 6 people
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons SAF instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1-1/4 cup warm water
  • 1-14- ounce jar pizza sauce or an equal amount of homemade sauce
  • 3-4 cups grated mozzarella
  • sliced pepperoni
  • chopped veggies like onions, bell peppers, or olives
  1. Start getting your coals ready, they need to be hot and ready to cook. I use 8-9 coals below the 12-inch Dutch Oven. I use 14-16 coals on top of the lid. So, start with kindling to get 20 briquettes ready.
  2. Mix the dough by hand and make a circle the best you can to fit a 12-inch Dutch oven. Grease the Dutch oven or use a disposable liner. I like to cook one side of the pizza dough then flip it over to cook a little more. I then add the sauce, meats, and veggies. When the pizza is done I remove it from the coals and add the cheese. Put the lid back on and let it melt/cook for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  3. You can also bake this pizza in your oven on a greased pizza pan at 350 degrees for 20-40 minutes depending on how much cheese you put on it.
