Integrate Learning in Pizza
At this point, you have already taught the kids about kitchen
safety, but there is a lot more that you can teach when making
pizza with children. School age children can use their math skills
as they help measure and combine ingredients. Just think of all
those wonderful fractions that need to be added, reduced, etc.
You can also take the opportunity
to talk about good nutrition by discussing the ingredients you
are choosing and why. Also, dont be afraid to add fresh
vegetables, youll be amazed what kids will eat when its
covered in cheese and on top of a pizza theyve created.
Pizza Making Quality Time:
Probably the best reason to make pizza with kids is for the quality
time. Think about how much fun a mini pizza assembly line is,
especially when the children are in charge of choosing their
own crusts, cheeses, sauces and toppings.
Be sure to compliment the child
on a job well done and offer your child the first taste of the
pizza. Ask what they think and you may even consider having them
judge the pizza on the taste, dough, toppings, etc. This will
give them a chance to figure out what they might change for next
