Cooking with Kids: Pizza Dough

When I know we will be home in the afternoon, and I need to occupy the kids AND cook dinner simultaneously, they LOVE this option of making their own pizzas!

Ingredients:

  • Premade pizza dough (one for each child)
  • 1 container sauce (usually good for two pizza pies)
  • 1 bag shredded mozzarella cheese (also good for two pizza pies)

We roll the dough right on a clean table. Sprinkle flour on the table and dough, I like to use Almond Flour.

You will want to move the dough onto a pan before applying the sauce. Let the kids spread the sauce, it gives them a sense of accomplishment and creativity!

Then they sprinkle on the cheese. Or in my daughter’s case, they eat the cheese too!

Put it in the oven according to the premade dough package instructions.

The finished product is ready to EAT!

Christina is an odd combination of a perfectionist that insists on things happening organically, or according to nature. She wants to have all the control, yet leave life up to chance, and it is a concept that she admittedly constantly struggles with. Her love for her family puts a spark in her eye that only happens with movie effects. She has three best friends from childhood and does not see a need for more. A self proclaimed hermit, she laughs at the hypocrisy of her love for party planning. Christina’s message is the importance of slowing down, and reclaiming joy by surrounding yourself with people and things you love. "I am going to make everything around me beautiful," she says, "that will be my life."
