Aussie Pizza
This is an Australian recipe. Camp oven refers to a cast iron Dutch oven.

3 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup water or milk
1 tin baked beans
1/2 cup diced bacon
3 medium mushrooms, sliced
1 cup cheese or enough to cover the pizza

Mix the flour and water to a nice firm dough. With a little flour on a board, roll out enough dough to cover the dish you are using for the base of the pizza. Then roll enough dough to go around the edge of the dish. This is to keep the mixture in and should be about 1/2 inch high.

Now place the base of the pizza in a pre-heated camp oven. Set the camp oven on a shovel of hot coals then cover the lid with very hot coals.

After about 8 to 10 minutes, check to see if the base is cooked. It will vary with the heat of the coals. When base is cooked, remove from camp oven and place baked beans on the base first. Then place cheese, bacon, finishing off with the mushrooms.

Return to hot camp oven with plenty of hot coals on top of the lid. Leave until bacon and mushrooms are cooked. Be very careful not to burn yourself when removing the pizza from the camp oven.

Has anyone tried doing a pizza using the camp oven upside down? I have tried it once and it worked really well and made getting the pizza out of the oven real easy.

Hi Yobbo if you want you can use tinfoil folded into 30 or 40cm strips put that under the pizza and when it is ready use the tinfoil as the handles and just lift it straight out of the oven
