The Bushcamp Company: From the Kitchen

Located in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

One of the great joys of travel is experiencing a destination with all of your senses; learning its rhythms, exploring sites both everyday and extraordinary, and sampling its flavors. Food is a touchstone for discovering a place and its culture, and at National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, cuisine plays a central—and scrumptious—role. We asked chefs from our lodges for recipes that capture the flavors of their destination. We hope you enjoy bringing these tastes of the world into your own kitchen.

Homemade Pizza Dough

  • 10 cups Bread Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbs Yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil
  • 2 cups warm water

Mix together the salt, yeast, olive oil and warm water. Make a well in the flour and add the wet ingredients. Mix together and then knead the dough for about 10 minutes until smooth. Leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Once risen, knock back the dough and roll out on a floured surface. Cut into the desired size. Place your favourite toppings on the base and cook in the pizza oven.
