Making Pizza with Kids

kids pizza facesMaking pizza is a tactile, sensory experience that increases your enjoyment of eating it. Mixing and kneading the dough, topping it, moving it into and out of the oven all bring smells and tastes that are just wonderful. Making pizza with kids is a great way to spend some family time together, and because it is so interactive, they will love it. Involve them in the mixing and kneading of the dough. When it is time to assemble the pizza, instead of making one large one, make several small pizzas. Allow your kids to top their own pizzas. You may be surprised at what they will put on. You may even get your vegetable haters to try a few of them on their pizzas.
