the kids make pizza

We’ve got an inherited pizza base recipe. From Maree. But I am not sure who Maree is. I think she had something to do with Clyde Street kinder, as Merryn my sister passed the recipe on to us when she was the kinder teacher there.

What is great about this recipe is that you can use the dough straight away and it turns out fine. It makes a great ’emergency meal’.

This time when we made pizzas with it I pre-baked the bases for a couple of minutes. I don’t know if it made any difference really or not. I have never done it before. Usually I just roll out the bases and put the ingredients on top, then cook.

Pizza is something the kids love making. Such interesting shapes are produced with 5 year old assistance – but that’s part of the fun right?

I cook pizzas by turning my oven up as high as it goes and I use a pizza stone which heats up in the oven and helps cook the base evenly – I find it handy. I guess they take about 10 minutes. I just keep checking them.

If you would like to make your own pizzas, here is the recipe.

Maree’s Famous Pizza (make 3 large or 4 medium pizzas)

1 cup plain flour
1 cup self raising flour
1 tsp yeast
1 tsp honey
1 cup lukewarm water

In a bowl mix the flours together, then add the yeast, honey and water. Mix to a dough. Turn out onto a well floured surface and knead.

Roll out into your favourite shape, add your toppings and cook.

Yum!

  1. The lovely Maree is still using this great recipe at the Coleraine Kinder, I put it in the newsletter every year and it is a winner all around. Sometimes (when desperate to fill up the sometimes fussy, hollow legged stepkids) I make garlic pizza…Cade loves it!
