Backpacking Stove Clinic: Pizza!

  • A person wearing a red sweatshirt and green hat squats down in front of a backcountry stove with a frying pan on top. They are drizzling a cooking pancake with a spoonful of Nutella.

Trips to be scheduled.

Hungry for a mid afternoon snack, and want to learn some outdoor skills in the bargain? Sign up for this clinic where you’ll learn to use one of the best backpacking stoves on the market to make your own delicious pizza. (And of course, then you get to eat it right there, or take it home with you.)

NOTE: for this clinic, we don’t have gluten-free pizza dough or dairy-free cheese.
