These Tortilla Trail Pizzas Really Hit the Spot after a Day of Hiking and Backpacking 

Favorite Backpacking Recipe - Tortilla Trail Pizza

Tortilla Trail Pizza has been one of our favorite backpacking meals for many years. We first made them on Boy Scout trips, when our cooking skills were limited to Ramen Noodles and Pop Tarts, because they were so easy to make. Tortilla Trail Pizzas are also great for groups or when adventuring with picky eaters, since everyone can create their own pizza with their favorite toppings.  

 

Ingredients For Tortilla Trail Pizza

Hiking... it is both calming and energizing. It is when I often feel most free. It can be whatever you want it to be- thoughtful or meditative, relaxing or challenging. It is a way to connect with the natural world, with others, and with yourself. It makes you more appreciative, and helps you understand your relative size. You discover beautiful things on every trail. It is one of the healthiest and most refreshing activities available.

Chill bumps bristled on my arms. Gazing out over snow-tipped peaks, I felt torn. After hiking one of my first of Colorado’s 14ers, I wanted to remain in the breathtaking landscape surrounding me. I had entered another world, one that only existed above the clouds. I longed to linger there, but I was growing colder and colder with every breath. My mind clung to the chill as I shivered. It was summer.
