Asian Inspired Campfire Pizza Recipe
Author: 50 Campfires
Recipe type: Lunch / Dinner
Serves: 1 Pizza
- 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- ¾ lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into ½-inch pieces
- 1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 can (8 oz.) no-salt-added tomato sauce
- 1 Tbsp. Sriracha Sauce
- 1 tsp. soy sauce
- 1 12-inch ready-to-serve pizza crust
- 1 can (8 oz.) sliced water chestnuts, drained
- ½ cup small snow pea pods
- ⅓ cup red onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
- Soak Family Griller Plank in water for one hour. Make sure it’s fully submerged.
- Build a campfire to create a good bed of coals that will deliver at least 375° F, or set up zone fire in grill, so it has both direct and indirect heat zones.
- Heat skillet to high heat over grill or campfire.
- Add oil and coat skillet well.
- Add chicken and grated ginger. Stir-fry for two minutes. Add garlic. Stir-fry one more minute until chicken is no longer pink in center.
- Reduce heat to medium. Stir in tomato sauce, Sriracha Sauce, and soy sauce.
- Spoon and spread chicken mixture onto pizza crust to within ½ inch of edge.
- Top with drained water chestnuts, pea pods, and onion. Sprinkle with cheese.
- After plank has soaked at least an hour, remove from water and spray one side lightly with cooking spray.
- Place pizza on oiled side of plank and cover with foil so it just laps the edges of plank, but leaves underside exposed to the heat.
- When campfire or grill is ready, place the plank over the direct heat for about 2-3 minutes until bottom begins to smolder.
- Move the plank to indirect heat and cook for 15-20 minutes until pizza is heated through and cheese is melted.
- Sprinkle with cilantro and drizzle with Sriracha to taste.
