    I had made this pizza in my ilFornino outdoor wood fired pizza oven. What a nice change from all our usual camping meals!!! I have Added chopped onions, diced green bell peppers, one large garlic clove, minced. Sprinkled Italian seasoning over the top before cooking & crushed red pepper to taste.

      That sounds so good. I love the outdoor wood-fired pizza oven idea for a camping trip.
