How To Have A Fun Family Pizza Party!

Pizza Party

Family Pizza

Dr Kirsty Porter
Family Pizza Night anyone?!
Get the whole family involved, children, can help wash the veg, make the pizza base mixture, roll out the pizza and decorate them! This is a great way to encourage food acceptance as well. This can be a great family bonding night and has the added bonus of being a fake takeaway for the family! If you have a muffin tray and coloured cases/moulds place toppings in this and allow the kids to decorate their own pizza.
You can tailor each pizza to each family need preferences. This is a good way to switch it up by trying veg in a different way. Be creative as you can be, make it a competition to see who has the best looking pizza!
For babies, you can use crumpets as a base and add grated cheese, carrot, and passata on top and place them under the grill.
Food Allergens: Milk (can use dairy free cheeses), gluten (you can use gluten free base options)
