I love to buy cheap and cheerful pizzas and then spruce them up by adding loads of different toppings.
Yet, it was only last week that I realised this would be a great way to get the kids involved in helping to make their own dinners, having fun in the kitchen.
So whilst Jack was at nursery one morning I did a quick scoot around the supermarket for different ingredients and then chopped and prepped them up.
I did two plates of ingredients up – knowing that some of the things on the “grown-ups” pizza would not be appreciated by the kids.
When Jack and I got back from nursery (via a quick trip to the playground!) we set about topping our two cheap margarita pizzas.
We used cookie cutters to cut the ham and chicken into shapes to make it a bit more fun for a three year old, and then we threw on allsorts of great things. – fairly indiscriminately!
Ingredients we used:
For the kids topping
Ham teddy bears
For the grown-ups
Herby bacon lardons
Finally we covered the top of the pizza in a fairly generous layer of grated cheddar.
Jack really enjoyed being involved in making these pizzas and both children really enjoyed eating his handiwork 🙂
