Kids in The Kitchen - Star's Pizza

It's been an eventful week here with Star finally getting her halo off. She hasn't been feeling too well all week, but she loves pizza so it was her choice to make it. More about that in minute.

First, as usual, I'd like to thank those that linked up last week.
We had some lovely Cheesy Root Muffins from the adorable Miss T at The Beesey Buzz.
Then there was some yummy Banana Oat Cookies from the Small Child at EatsAmazing.
And who can resist Vanilla Heart Shaped Biscuits With Pink Icing from the lovely Honey at Giraffe in the Bath?
Thank you all so much for joining in xx

If you would like to link up then please do, just share your posts of your kids cooking up a storm in your kitchen, they can be old or new, I don't mind.

Star's Pizza


150g strong bread flour
100ml warm water
1/2 tsp fast acting yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil


The fabulous thing about pizza is you can put anything you fancy on top, even baked beans and pineapple if you fancy.
We went for a traditional cheesey pizza;
1 tbs passatta
handful of grated chedder cheese
handful of grated red leicester cheese
125g packet of mozzerella


Star was still not feeling good so I split the pizza making into two halfs. For the first half my two helpers, Boo and The Little Man, made the dough.

We put the dry ingredients into a big bowl, then we made a well into middle into which we added the oil and half of the water. We mixed it up into a dough, slowly adding the rest of the water until it all came together.
We turned the dough out onto the surface and began kneeding.

Then we gently rolled the dough into a large round and left it to rise.

For the next stage I had help from Star and Boo.
Star covered the pizza by spreading the passata over it with the back of the spoon.
Then I let them sprinkle on the two hard cheeses.
finally they ripped up the mozzerella and placed it on top.

I baked the pizza in the oven at 240 C or gas mark 8 for 10 minutes.

Now it's your turn, what will your kids be cooking, do come and let us know.
I'd love it if you included my badge in your post so others can see and join in.


  1. what yummy looking pizzas. Such a good idea to do it in two stages so star could join in. hope she is feeling better. Thank you for the mention.

  2. I would really like to get my son excited about eating healthier. He says he wants to but gags on most foods. Any suggestions?

    1. Peggy, I have two really fussy eaters in my home. I find the best way to deal with it is not to fuss too much. Getting them to make their own food lets them see exactly what is going into the food and you may find that they are much keener to eat it too. Or you could always add a little of something he really likes to a plate of things you really would like him to eat. If you keep doing this the things he doesn't like might just end up in his tum.


Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate all comments x

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
