Instead of an upside down pizza you could just do a calzone instead.

Oh my! I have to try this! I have all of DA's good cast iron here!

One could put coals in a firepit, yes?

With love,

I put coals in a fire pit all the time. Works great for starting the coals.

Putting your CI cookware in a bed of hot charcoal will certainly burn the crud off the outside of the pan. However, it does not clean selectively and will probably clean the nonstick coating off the entire pan. You'll have to re-season it.

What I do is get the charcoal started in the fire pit and then take gloves and some tongs and retrieve them from the fire pit so that I can get the correct amount on my Dutch oven.

My comment was referring to an earlier post regarding using a bed of coals to burn the 'crud' off the outside of a CI piece.

Controlled cooking on wood and charcoal fires is a totally different thing.

I love making Calzones in my Duck Blind Bistro oven. It makes the whole process easier, but I should try some pizza with it.

Not using coals as these folks are doing. It would ruin the enamel.

You need a real camping style dutch oven for this. The lid is a tray to put hot coals in to provide heat from all sides like a normal oven does. These pots usually have legs on the bottom as well and a wire handle for lifting.
