Easy Home Made Pizza

We all love pizza right ? Especially homemade pizza, well we do in our house it’s the number one choice when we ask the kids what treat they would like for tea. But what better way to have pizza than to make it yourself. It’s also a great way to get the kids in the kitchen and encourage them to take part in the making of their own pizza. I know that if I allow my two to help, choose and take part in the cooking of their meals they are more inclined to eat them.

Pizza making although a little messy is one of our favourite things to do and all the families number one choice for our weekend treat. This super simple pizza recipe is quick and easy to make, and is much healthier than shop bought varieties.
