This past weekend we went camping down in Half Moon Bay. A fun little Northern California Coastal town with plenty of beach line, scenic views, and ample places to camp. I first discovered this a few months back when I made my trek up highway 1 from the Monterey Bay Peninsula and instantly fell in love.
I soon introduced this jewel of a place to my SO, and also one of his cousins. When a new tradition was born this past August for every birthday celebration to go camping, this spot became a possibility to try out for future camping. And this past weekend, with a birthday celebration in hand, we headed to Half Moon Bay.
That’s the Half Moon Bay directly behind me after our morning hike to the beach from our campsite.
With that being said, when it comes to camping, my SO and I are beginning to try different meals when outdoors. With a grill attached to our campsite, we soon began talking about what to bring. Eggs, check. Ham, check. Pork Loins, check. And then I had the brilliant idea of Flatbread Pizzas. I’d recently found out about the On the Go Flatbread Pizzas from Fresh&Easy and knew this was the perfect time to try them out.
So I headed to my local Fresh&Easy in Napa to pick them up. With 5 varieties to choose from: Prosciutto & Apricot, Chicken Florentine, The Sicilian, Tomato Balsamic, and Garlic. Seriously, the perfect camping food. You can just grab and go.
We then headed down to our campsite in Half Moon Bay with the car packed up, our camping equipment in tow along with our pizzas, and so the birthday celebrations could begin.
On Saturday night, we headed to the local lounge area of our campsite and begin getting the grill ready. Charcoals were burning, and my SO began to put the meat on first. With the meat almost done we threw on the flatbread pizzas. The pizzas really only take a good 10 to 12 minutes to cook before they’re done.
A key thing to know with pizzas, especially when camping is that they need to be cooked on a covered grill because the top also needs to be cooked through, not just the bottom of the pizzas. So once the pizzas were on the grill we closed the cover and let them cook for 10-12 minutes checking on them occasionally.
And just so you know, EVERYTHING tastes better on the grill including pizzas. Flatbread Pizzas are perfect because they’re smaller pizzas, easy to carry with you and pack in the cooler, and the crust works wonders on the grill.
The finished result: Our Sicilian and Tomato Balsamic Flatbread Pizzas
