On Monday the Planning With Kids family were invited to attend Ladro Greville to participate in a junior pizza making class. Unfortunately Mr I was away for work so couldn’t participate but the remaining 6 of us went along and had the most fabulous time!
They are also family friendly with pre-7pm bookings available for families as well as a 2 course kids menu of a kids pizza or pasta and dessert (bomboloni or icecream) for $12.50.
The closest I come to making my own pizza dough is using the bread maker, so making pizza dough from scratch was a completely new experience for everyone in our family.
Ingrid is one of the owners of Ladro and she is also a mum to two delightful kids, who made pizza with us as well. Ingrid was fantastic with the kids and kept them engaged for the whole time.
We set about making our ’50/50/50 starter’. The kids are encouraged to touch, feel and explore the ingredients in the process. Our kids felt a noticeable difference from the flour we use at home in cooking to the one we were going to use to make our pizza.
Ingrid explained to the kids that the dough now needed to ‘prove’ in a draught free area which was warm. As it would take some time for it to double in size, the kids then used some dough which had been made earlier.
The kids loved the pizza making class and we got to take home our little bags which contained instructions on how to make pizza, an activity sheet and an info sheet explaining the terms and ingredients used to make pizza.
