About Our PIZZA MARGHERITA

  • 1 Serving Backpacking Meal 
     
  • Dietary Considerations:  vegetarian; gluten-conscious
    • all-natural dehydrated and freeze-dried ingredients
    • 620 calories
    • 32 g protein
       
  • Meal Net Weight:  3.6 oz | 103 g    
     
  • Meal Includes:  seasoned pizza blend;  organic extra virgin olive oil
     
  • Required:  warm or cool water
     
  • Recommended:  long–handled spoon;  2-3 tortillas;  Cook-in-Cozy
  • Insider Tips:
    • A skillet-toasted Pizza Margherita really takes this meal to the next level! To make: reserve included oil and drizzle into a skillet. Heat to a sizzle. Toast prepared pizza rolls or half-moon quesadillas until golden brown.  Mama Mia what a difference!
    • This meal contains freeze-dried cheese which (1) is really delicious and (2) stays in its shredded form once rehydrated and heated, rather than melting the way that fresh cheeses do. 
    • Cool water works just fine for this meal!  Allow to steep-cook for 20 minutes — when the cheese is tender, it's ready!

This pizza-inspired meal - not exactly a slice, not exactly a wrap, and not exactly a quesadilla - was a hit with testers who described it as a "lip-smacking way to finish a long day." The pizza-wrap's main attraction is a gooey mozzarella spread spiked with hints of basil, slices of black olives and chunks of tomato that preps with cold water and folds into a (BYO) tortilla. "The flavors are distinct and, while it's tasty cold, I loved this meal hot, melted-quesadilla style," says one tester who reports that a single serving with 24 grams of fat and 58 grams of protein, is enough for a late-night snack for two hungry hikers. Tip: Freeze-dried cheese won't melt unless completely rehydrated. Add a splash of water if there's an iota of crunch.

frequently asked questions

What is Gluten Conscious?
 
Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
 

We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

    I received this in a food box from Garage Grown Gear. It's the only meal I'd purchase again. On my last hike, access to water was always an issue; I loved that this mean required so little water. (Another meal I received required 800ml to make. I like to dry camp, and I don't like carrying a lot of extra water. 75ml? PERFECT!) I found it too salty, but it was delicious. I'd add more olive oil if I were to make it again.

    Pizza on the trail. That’s right. I agree, it is an overwhelming concept that we could enjoy warm and zesty pizza outdoors- we’ve all had a year of learning to appreciate the little things, and this dream concoction is no exception. This was one of my favorite dehydrated meals this year- so much so that I blogged about it! Check out my list of top 5 here outdoors-explored.com/2020/12/24/the-top-5-dehydrated-meals-of-2020/

    This was very tasty, great spices. This is ALL cheese with spices. Like others said, it kinda clumped up and I had to cut chunks to put into the tortilla then ate it like a burrito. It was cold outside and it clumped up very quickly as we made our servings. I may add a bit more water next time and try harder to keep it warm. I think if you were to make it like the picture and grill it in a tortilla, it would work well. I will buy it again.

    Not bad! Nice flavors, but the cheese sort of formed a ball that was a bit strange texture-wise later in the meal. I think it's partially user error on that.

      Not bad! Nice flavors, but the cheese sort of formed a ball that was a bit strange texture-wise later in the meal. I think it's partially user error on that.

    This pizza-inspired meal - not exactly a slice, not exactly a wrap, and not exactly a quesadilla - was a hit with testers who described it as a "lip-smacking way to finish a long day." The pizza-wrap's main attraction is a gooey mozzarella spread spiked with hints of basil, slices of black olives and chunks of tomato that preps with cold water and folds into a (BYO) tortilla. "The flavors are distinct and, while it's tasty cold, I loved this meal hot, melted-quesadilla style," says one tester who reports that a single serving with 24 grams of fat and 58 grams of protein, is enough for a late-night snack for two hungry hikers. Tip: Freeze-dried cheese won't melt unless completely rehydrated. Add a splash of water if there's an iota of crunch.

    frequently asked questions

    What is Gluten Conscious?
     
    Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
    Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
     

    We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

      I received this in a food box from Garage Grown Gear. It's the only meal I'd purchase again. On my last hike, access to water was always an issue; I loved that this mean required so little water. (Another meal I received required 800ml to make. I like to dry camp, and I don't like carrying a lot of extra water. 75ml? PERFECT!) I found it too salty, but it was delicious. I'd add more olive oil if I were to make it again.

      Pizza on the trail. That’s right. I agree, it is an overwhelming concept that we could enjoy warm and zesty pizza outdoors- we’ve all had a year of learning to appreciate the little things, and this dream concoction is no exception. This was one of my favorite dehydrated meals this year- so much so that I blogged about it! Check out my list of top 5 here outdoors-explored.com/2020/12/24/the-top-5-dehydrated-meals-of-2020/

      This was very tasty, great spices. This is ALL cheese with spices. Like others said, it kinda clumped up and I had to cut chunks to put into the tortilla then ate it like a burrito. It was cold outside and it clumped up very quickly as we made our servings. I may add a bit more water next time and try harder to keep it warm. I think if you were to make it like the picture and grill it in a tortilla, it would work well. I will buy it again.
