Homemade Pizza For Kids

Easy-Homemade-Pizza-for-Kids

This would have to be a favourite meal with my kids. It is usually a Friday night or week end meal, as they all like to help make their own pizza. This is a bit of a cheats recipe as we use the bread maker to make the dough! The kids help with measuring all the ingredients and loading them into the bread maker container, press the buttons and then wait for it to be ready. We then divide the dough into quarters and each child, gets to make their own.

Homemade Pizza

Ingredients Dough:

  • 1 3/4 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Ingredients Toppings:

  • 100 grams fetta cheese
  • fresh basil
  • 1 tomato
  • 200 grams ham, shredded
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly

Method:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Once dough is ready cut it into quarters.

Easy Homemade Pizza Rolling Dough
Using baking paper or a lightly floured surface, shape out the pizza bases. My children prefer thinner bases, so I actually use a rolling pin for this process.

Easy Homemade Pizza Tomato Sauce
Pour some sauce on to the base and spread evenly across it.

Easy Homemade Pizza Cheese Topping
Add cheese, then desired toppings. A favourite combination of mine is sun dried tomatoes, basil and fetta. The children prefer a simpler combination like tomato, onion, and ham or even simpler in the case of the younger two – just cheese.

Easy Homemade Pizza Slices
Place pizza on a tray lined with baking paper and place into oven.
Cook for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden on top. The big kids like to cut their pizza into slices, but little ones find it easier to eat in pizza fingers.
