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.

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

      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.
