Pizza Making with the kids

What a miserable day it was on Saturday, there was no way we were going out in torrential rain and gale force winds. Instead we decided to stay in, watch the Rugby and make some home made pizza’s.

Making pizza bases

Ben and Daddy made the pizza dough and Ben loved kneeding and rolling it out. Daddy started being clever and throwing the dough in the air Italian style. Luckily it didn’t end up on the floor!

Next on to the toppings;

    We love making home made pizzas in our house. I love how the kids can get involved, including my 3 year olds. I think they taste way better and healthier than shop bought ones and take away versions.
