Pizza is a very beloved food in my family. Probably my Dad’s favorite. When I was growing up he would use any opportunity to try and talk my Mom into pizza for dinner. My brother and I clearly were destined to grow and become pizza lovers. I think pizza is an amazing food. Almost everyone on the planet eats it. You can put pretty much anything on it. And all you need to make great pizza at home is a killer dough recipe, which I’m going to share with you today, so your children can grow up to be proper pizza lovers too.
Actually one of the things that is the most fun about making pizza at home is that it’s a really kid friendly cooking project. I put my oldest son up on the counter and let him toss all the ingredients in the Kitchen Aid. After the dough rises I give him a ball to play with and it keeps him busy for an hour! Meanwhile I roll out the rest of the dough for our personal pizzas or the family sized deep dishes (spring form pans work really well for making deep dish at home), or Stromboli or whatever. After he’s done playing with the dough I let him spread sauce (Marcella sauce makes very tasty pizza sauce), add the toppings, and then we bake. Wah-la! Dinner and afternoon busy project for the four year old! Brilliant right?
So pass on the pizza love today and give it a shot!Print
