Dutch oven pizza

      IMG_0378 Not lightweight traveling, but…. a dutch oven gets you a damn good out-door-pizza. Base For the base there are three options you can use: 1) Ready to use breadmix (in the netherlands : broodmix from koopmans) 2) Self-raising flour 3) your own mix (Flour, yeast, salt, sugar) Topping Just like at home, use anything you like. In this case we used: * Mashed tomato * Unions * Garlic (of cource) * Small tin-can mixed vegetables * Salami sausage cut in dices * Diced pineapple * Grated cheese Make the dough, spread out in the dutch oven. Mix the mashed tomatoes, unions, garlic and vegetables. Spread out over the dough. Cover with salami and pineapple and finally the grated cheese. Depending the size of the DO i used 3 coals at the bottom and eight on top.flagcounter

So, not just dryer lint anymore 😉
Took it a step further to pine scrapings, but did nog get it going (yet?).
I’ll keep trying, there must be more tinder in nature than birch.

The water was still cold and most fauna where still hidden.
But, an eel presented itself, as did a beautiful sunset

Still trying to get it right. Tried hay from out horses, saw chips from my chainsaw  🙁
Dryer lint goes real easy as does gas. but everything else is still a challenge
