Updated: Oct 21, 2021



Prep time: 15-20 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Total time: 35 minutes


Young children make their food decisions based on what food looks like. They like 'magical thinkingโ€™ so presentation is key. Let your imagination run wild! Here are some ideas for family pizza. Everyone can have a go and make different ones!

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Get the whole family involved, children can help wash the veg, make the pizza base mixture, roll out the pizza and decorate them! This is a great way to encourage food acceptance as well. This can be a great family bonding night and has the added bonus of being a fake takeaway for the family! If you have a muffin try and coloured cases/moulds place toppings in this and allow the kids to decorate their own pizza.


๐Ÿ‘Œ All about making a balanced meal so base is carbohydrate source. You can add vegetables in the base sauce (see Jamie's Oliver's 7 vegetable sauce recipe https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/pasta-recipes/seven-veg-tomato-sauce/) & as toppings think ๐ŸŒˆeffect! Add protein sources such as ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿ—๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿฃ or dairy free alternatives for those with an ๐Ÿ„ allergy. Can use cutters if you have them or cut the shape of the wrap.


Ingredients:

  • Vegetables such as purple onions, peppers, sweetcorn, mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes

  • 1 tin passata- can add basil & garlic

  • Various cheeses

  • Base- naan bread/wraps/shop bought or you can make your own base


Home made base recipe:

  • 350g self raising flour

  • 1 tspn olive oil

  • 250g natural yogurt

  • Pinch of salt



Method:

  1. If making base place all ingredients in a large bowl & mix well until you can't move it anymore. Knead dough for a few minutes until smooth. Put back in bowl and cover with towel.

  2. Prep & grate vegetables.

  3. Prep & grate cheese.

  4. Place dough on flour dusted surface and divide into 8 pieces. Roll into thin rounds.

  5. Place base on pizza tray/ greaseproof paper on a tray, add passata as base and add toppings.

  6. Cook @180c for 15 minutes or until base is crispy.

  7. Serve with veg/side salad.



For babies you can use crumpets as a base and add grated cheese, carrot and passata on top and place under the grill.
