How to have a Fun Family Pizza Party!

Young children make their food decisions based on what food looks like. They like ‘magical thinking’ so presentation is key. Let your imagination run wild! Here are some ideas for family pizza. Everyone can have a go and make different ones! You can use cutters if you have them or cut the shape of the wrap into any style you want. This is a great idea for a family style dining and helps with fussy eating and food refusal!

Get your kids involved!

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.

Why not have a go and make these?

We are passionate about getting families in the kitchen with everyone getting involved when they can! Cooking with kids should be fun and enjoyable. Make it a pressure free zone! This also helps your child’s confidence with cooking & become more accepting of foods too! They may even try the separate ingredients in the process!
