Alterations for dietary restrictions

One of the best things about having pizza during camp is the fact that you can adapt it to (almost) any food-restriction. If you decide to have participants make their own pizza it is even easier, as they can put whatever they prefer on their slice. However, we would like to give you some examples for food restrictions that are relevant for this recipe:

Vegetarian: Make sure that you have enough meat-free toppings to offer

Vegan: Make sure that the pizza-dough doesn’t contain any animal-related products (e.g. lactose/egg free), as a cheese-substitute you could organize soya-cheese

Islam: No pork-meat (you could buy chicken-ham)

Hindu: Offer a lot of vegetarian toppings

Gluten: Buy gluten free pizza dough

Lactose: Try to find lactose free pizza dough, as a cheese substitute you could organize soya-cheese

Left over’s: Leftovers can be used for breakfast or other snack breaks.


Step 1
Preheat oven to 195C (hot air)
Step 2
Cut toppings, put each topping in a different bowl
Pizza Sauce
Step 3
Put tomato sauce in pot
Step 4
Heat the tomato sauce and add salt, pepper, garlic, oregano and basil
Step 5
Roll out pizza dough
Step 6
Put pizza sauce on pizza
Step 7
Put toppings on pizza
Step 8
Bake pizza in oven for 15 minutes at 195C

This can be easily turned into a fun get-to-know activity for participants/leaders/staff: After preparing the sauce, toppings and dough you can put everything on a buffet, have participants make groups of 3 and give them the possibility to make their own pizza and put anything on top what they want.


Other interesting facts:

The Norwegians eat most pizza in the world according to a survey by ACNielsen 2004, 5,4 kg/year per capita. 50 million frozen pizzas were sold that year, with consumption being 22,000 tons of frozen pizza, 15,000 tons of home-baked and 13,000 tons of restaurant-made pizzas. (

Some Italian delegations might be surprised to see Nachos on the pizza-buffet – be warned, as this is a very Norwegian-speciality!
