  • 50g Butter
  • 200ml Buttermilk
  • 2 cups S/R flour
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • pinch salt
  • Cheese
  • Your favourite pizza toppings. (This one has Salami, Olives, Sun dried tomatoes, Pineapple, Chives, Parsley,Cheese).


  1. Pre heat Camp oven on Ozpig using fire or heat beads.
  2. Add flour, salt, sugar and butter to a bowl and rub butter through flour with fingers.
  3. Mixed through diced pizza ingredients and grated cheese (don't be scared to pile the toppings in, it may look like too much but when the damper cooks and rises it will be perfect).
  4. Add buttermilk and mix with fork until combined.
  5. Turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly. Place in heated camp oven on a foil or baking paper lined trivet and cut into 8 wedges halfway through damper.
  6. Add extra cheese on top. using plenty of coals or heat beads on camp oven lid Cook for 30 -40 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
  7. Note: Regular milk may be used rather than buttermilk. Buttermilk will give a lighter less dense texture. If using regular milk do not add the sugar.

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.
