Thanks again to E and her Mummy for sharing this with us – she has also posted the activity on her blog
What you need to make Pizzas
Pizza base or packet mix (we used packet mix)
Tomato puree or chopped tomatoes (we cheated and brought a jar)
Toppings of your choice
Round baking tray/pizza tray (although a square or rectangle one can be used)
Rolling pin (or coca-cola bottle/wine bottle – yes I’ve done that before)
Flour (for dusting)
How the fun happens
As E is still small I find it easier to have all the ingredients set out in separate bowls before we start as she has a limited attention span (although if she takes after me that may not change!)
We then made up our pizza dough as per instructions on the packet – emptied into the blender with 4ml warm water and kneaded/mixed for 5 minutes.
I then dusted the work surface with flour, gave E a rolling-pin and let her play for a bit while I oiled the pizza trays.
With a bit (lot) of help we managed to roll out the dough and spread on the tomato sauce (from a jar). E was then let loose with the cheese and the toppings, having lots of fun eating them, feeding them to the dog and occasionally getting it on the actual pizza.
They were then cooked on 200 degrees in the oven for about 12-15 minutes. Cooled then enjoyed. The mess was dealt with later on with E safely in her high chair eating her home-made tea.
We usually have more toppings on our pizza but this was done on an empty fridge day!!
