Pizza in a Pot

pizza in a pot

So I’ve been at Girls Camp all week as the cook so I thought I’d blog about what I made for them.  We made this up at camp but it would make a great, fun one pot meal at home too.  I found the recipe somewhere online while searching for camping food.

1 pound hamburger

1/4 pound Italian sausage or pepperoni

1 onion

1/2 red pepper (I left this out when making it for the girls)

1 can sliced mushrooms, undrained (also left this out)

1 (5 1/2 oz) can tomato paste

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 – 2 teaspoons oregano

1 cup pasta

Mozzarella cheese

1 loaf French bread

(I also added some garlic to this, about 1 clove pressed)

Brown hamburger and then drain fat.  Add onions and red pepper and stir fry until almost done.  Add mushrooms, sausage or pepperoni, tomato paste, salt, pepper, oregano, pasta and garlic.  Add enough water to just cover.  Cook covered over low heat until pasta is tender.  When done, cover the entire top with Mozzarella.  Cover again, turn off burner and let sit 5 – 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Spoon out servings onto slices of French bread.

(I did it a little differently then as described above.  After adding all the ingredients (except pepperoni) and cooking until the pasta was done, I spooned out servings onto the slices of French bread and then topped each individual slice with cheese and then with the pepperoni and I put it back on the grill and warmed it up so that the cheese melted slightly.  I also cut the loaves of bread in half lengthwise and then sliced them so that it looked more like French bread pizza.  And to make it easier up there at camp, I precooked the hamburger and onion and froze it.)
