Chili Dog Pizza

     For those of you with cast iron stomachs, here's a super simple, kid friendly recipe to place in your camping file.  Form a dough with Bisquick and water, pat the dough into your oven, top with the chili dog fixins and in 25 minutes you've got a tasty and filling dutch oven pizza.  The 'pizza' cooked in my 10 inch oven for 25 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom, 16 briquettes around the edge of the lid and 6 coals spaced evenly in the center.  Let it cool for 10 minutes before slicing and polish it off with all your favorite hot dog toppings.  One quick reminder, be sure to use only 7 oz. of canned chili, I couldn't find the smaller cans but used one half of a 15 oz. can instead.

Chili Dog Pizza
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup cold water
1 7 1/2 oz can chili
4-5 hot dogs, sliced thinly
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

     Lightly oil or spray 10 inch dutch oven.
     In medium bowl, mix together Bisquick and water.
     Stir or knead with hands until a soft ball forms.
     Roll or pat dough into an 8 inch circle.
     Transfer dough to prepared dutch oven.
     Pat dough until bottom of oven is covered, pressing edges to form a crust.
     Spread chili over crust, sprinkle with cheese and top with hot dog slices.
     Bake at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and crust has browned.
     Makes 4-6 servings.
