How to Make Pizza in a Cardboard Box
Tonight the Epic Elfins made a pizza completely from scratch out in the open air, cooking it in a cardboard box over the coals of an open fire. Want to know how? Read on…
STEP 1: Prepare your Cardboard Box
We lined a large cardboard box with foil, and cut off the flaps…
STEP 2: Make the Pizza Dough
Yes we did make our own pizza dough outside in the open air – no cheating for us! And the Elfins loved getting their hands all sticky, kneading the dough and rolling out the base.
STEP 3: Make your Topping
We made the tomato topping with some passata, herbs and garlic, then chopped some onion, olives and mushroom and topped our pizza.
STEP 4: Make a Fire
We made a fire, let it burn down and added some barbecue coals.
STEP 5: Prepare your Oven
We took some hot coals from the fire and put a rack on top to make a grill. Then put our pizza over the top and covered with our cardboard oven. It’s cooking!
STEP 6: Eat the Pizza!
Yum… We were amazed at how quickly the pizza cooked in our oven.
