Ingredients

  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon dried bakers yeast or 1 sachet if using sachets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 375mls lukewarm water
  • Toppings
  • This one has the following toppings but you can create your own if you wish.
  • Olives
  • Crushed garlic
  • Bacon pieces
  • Tomato
  • Mushroom
  • Rosmary
  • Grated cheese

Directions

  1. Place flour, yeast and salt in a bowl and mix.
  2. Make a well in the centre and add the lukewarm water.
  3. If water is too hot it will kill the yeast..too cool the yeast won't activate properly.
  4. Stir with a spoon until combined then turn dough out onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes.
  5. Shape into a ball and place into a bowl with a damp tea towel covering the bowl.
  6. Place the bowl in a warm spot to prove for an hour or so or until it has doubled in size.
  7. Once proved punch the dough in the centre to knock it down and release the gas produced.
  8. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead for a few more minutes until smooth and back to original size.
  9. Roll into a flat round and place into the bottom of your camp oven. Allow to prove for a further 30 minutes.
  10. Place camp oven on your Ozpig with heat on top and bottom, cook until base sounds hollow.
  11. Add your toppings then continue to cook for another 10 minutes or until toppings have melted and browned.
  12. Place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes then slice and serve.

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

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.
