One thing which my kids love doing is helping to cook their own meals! I am always on the lookout for simple, quick food ideas which the kids can get involved with. One of our favourite things is Pitta Bread Pizzas! These are so ridiculously simple that even young kids can do the majority themselves, and they actually taste really, really good!
All you need is – pitta breads, tomato puree, cheese (and other things for toppings – we used ham and tomatoes).
Begin by spreading out the tomato puree onto the pitta bread. Make sure the bread is covered or it will burn). Then cover with grated cheese. It is completely up to you how much prep beforehand that you let your kids do. My daughter is now at an age where she loves and is quite capable of grating, chopping foods etc. It really builds kids confidence to allow them that little bit of independence, and will develop their cooking skills greatly.
Next choose which toppings you would like. We used a mix of ham, cheese and tomatoes!
Next pop them in the oven for approximately 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. They are super yummy served with fresh salad!
(Now you must forgive me at this point as I completely forgot to take photos of the finished pizzas – I’m so sorry! We were in too much of a rush to eat them)! Please trust me when I say they looked and tasted delicious!
A really quick, easy meal to make with the kids. The confidence the kids get from helping to make their own (and Mum and Dads!) food is brilliant!
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
