  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk, scalded
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter

  • 2 tbsp. chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese


Prepare Dough: Add water to hot milk and let cool to 115° F. In a mixing bowl combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar, and salt; mix well. Stir in milk and butter. Mix thoroughly. Stir in remaining flour and work into a dough. Place dough on a lightly floured board and knead for 5-7 minutes until dough is elastic and sticky. Set dough in a greased bowl and turn dough over so top side of dough has been greased. Cover and place in a warm area free from drafts until dough has doubled in size.

Prepare Topping: In a small bowl combine all ingredients and stir to mix.

Assemble For Baking: Punch dough down then press into the bottom of a 14" Dutch oven. Prick dough with a fork then spread topping evenly across the top. Cover oven and let rise for 30 minutes.


Bake using 12-14 briquettes bottom and 16-18 briquettes top for 20-25 minutes.

There are two rules of Dutch Oven Cooking:
1) If you cook too much food, share.
2) Cook too much food.
