H-Bomb had a friend over after school yesterday. I thought it'd be fun for them to make their own pizzas. I pulled some Marinara sauce out of the freezer, and decided to use my Artisan bread dough for the pizza crust.
All I had to do was assemble the ingredients, roll out the dough, watch the boys assemble their own pizzas and bake!
The boys, ages 4, 6 and 7, had so much fun, and the two older ones each finished eating their entire pizza!
Make Your Own Pizzas
Artisan bread dough
anything you want!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Gather pizza toppings. I put them in separate small bowls for easy access. Sprinkle a few baking sheets with cornmeal, in circles roughly the size of your pizzas.
I used a peach-size lump of bread dough for each pizza, shaped it into a ball with floured hands, let it rest, then used a rolling pin (and my hands) to roll it out to pizza size. Placed each round of dough on the cornmeal, and let the boys go at it with toppings.
I baked each tray of pizzas at 425 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
