I hope it’s clear from reading my blog that we love cooking and baking together. My 4 year old has wanted to make pizza for a while and we finally got round to it.
We made our pizza over two days, leaving the dough overnight in the airing cupboard. The children were very excited and fortunately patient.
Finally the next day they were able to make their pizzas with a little help from daddy. Everyone was able to roll their dough and make their own pizzas. Whilst they were having fun with the dough I prepared a plate of toppings. Once the tomato had been spooned over the dough they could get to work with ham, tomatoes, cucumber and cheese.
Then it was time to bake the pizzas in the oven before eating. The recipe made enough for three pizzas which we enjoyed with some yummy salad. Everyone enjoyed making pizzas and it was great to make them from so little ingredients, we’ll definitely be making them again!
The recipe came from Making Bread Together: step-by-step recipes for fun and simple breads to make with children by Emmanuel Hadjiandreou. The book aims to inspire children to learn about ingredients, good food and the joys of baking with Emmanuel Hadjiandreou’s easy-to-follow guide to making bread. The fun projects, creative recipes and step-by-step photographs will make kids love spending time in the kitchen with you, making bread for their lunchtime sandwiches and teatime treats for their family and friends.
Making Bread Together is published by Ryland Peters and has a RRP of £16.99.
