Backcountry Pizza Recipe

An amazing recipe compliments of Gear Patrol that will give you the energy to get through the next day.  I wish I had seen this recipe before we went to Banff but I’ll definitely try it on the trail in Prince Albert National Park this fall.


Yeast Crust

  • 1 tsp. dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


  • 1 cup tomato powder
  • 1/2 cup dehydrated veggies
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of ground pepper


  • 4 slices summer sausage
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella


  1. Mix yeast, warm water, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add flour, continue mixing until you have a thick ball of dough, then put the dough in a small container or baggie. Store the dough in a warm place (like the inside of your jacket) for 10-30 minutes to allow for it to rise.
  2. Coat the frying pan with olive oil. Knead and spread the dough in the pan until it forms a circular crust.
  3. Cover and bake, on low heat, for 3-5 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  4. Flip the crust, apply the sauce and toppings. Cover and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. (To speed things up, add a splash of water in the last minute or two of baking).
  5. Remove the cover and let the pizza sit for a minute or two. Cut into slices and serve. (Serves 3-4 people.)
