Youngstown White Pizza

If you’re from Youngstown, this needs no introduction. If you’re from anywhere else in the world, you might be thinking, what a strange name. This is a pizza alternative that will knock your socks off. It has limited ingredients and is easy as pie to make at camp. Easy as pizza pie, in fact.

1 lb premade dough, I use Trader Joe’s
1/4 c olive oil
1 tsp ground pepper, fresh cracked preferably
2 garlic cloves, crushed (I use zester)
1 tsp salt
2 c mozzarella, shredded
1/4 c pepperoncini rings

In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, pepper, and salt and set it aside. Next, oil your cast iron lightly with olive oil. Take your dough and use your hands to stretch it out a bit to the size of your cast iron. Place it in the bottom and use your fingers to stretch it out to the sides. Use your fingertips to create little digits (not holes) across the top to hold the oil. Cover the top with your olive oil mix evenly. Next, toss your mozzarella over the surface. Distribute the pepperoncini rings over the top. Place the cast iron over the hot rocks or coals for about 25 minutes or until it’s brown and crispy and the dough is completely cooked in the center.

Serves 2-3
