I decided yesterday I'd make pizza and let the kids make their own. I've never done that before and was kinda worried that I'd regret it. It wasnt terrible. My boys (age 3) kept trying to eat the dough and pepperoni (they love pepperoni!!!) even after my daughter had hers made they tried eating the topping off before we baked. All in all they had fun.
Here is the pizza dough i used:
2 Cups whole wheat flour ( you can use all wheat or do some white too)- I ended up using 2 1/3 cups total.
1 pkg (1 Tbsp) yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 C. warm water
1 tsp honey
Add water & yeast until dissolved. Add olive oil, salt and honey. Add four and knead until smooth. Add more if needed. Just until its a big ball. Place in a greased bowl and let rise 45 minutes.
I doubled the recipe and we had 6 balls of dough to do seperate pizzas.
Then I rolled them out. Layed on cookie sheets. Poured some spaghetti sauce on and then put toppings on and topped with cheese. And baked at 350 for about 10-15 min. I really didnt time it. I just checked the crust and when it seemed like it was browned I took it out.
Toppings we used were: Pepperoni (kids love that!), for mine I used zucchini diced up , spinach & pepperoni (it was yummy!!!)
