How To Make the Best pizza At Home!
Making pizza at home is actually very simple and your kids can help with ingredients and measurements. Before getting started, you’ll need to decide what type of pizza you want to make. There are plenty of variations, so let your kids pick the toppings they’d like!
The first part of making pizza at home is making the pizza base. This is actually very easy and takes only a few simple ingredients.
You’ll need flour, yeast, salt, olive oil and warm water. Combine these ingredients with a wooden spoon, knead the dough, then let it rise in a warm spot for a few hours. Alternatively, you can use a pre-made pizza dough from the store.
If you want specifics, here is a easy (yet awesome pizza recipe):
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 (.25 ounce) package instant dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup warm water
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.
- Add the olive oil and warm water, and mix until the dough comes together.
- Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for at least 30 minutes.
Once your pizza dough is ready, you can start making your pizza! Divide the dough into several sections and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Spread your pizza sauce over the rolled-out dough and add any desired toppings (this is when your kids can have fun!). Finally, place the pizza on a baking sheet and bake it for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
Do this with your kids!
