How to host your own pizza-making party for children

With the hectic lifestyles we all lead, it can be difficult to make time to cook with our children. But with a few simple recipes up your sleeve that they can help with, you’ll soon start to see how engaged with food children can be.

Hosting your own pizza-making party is great fun, not least because the ingredients are cheap, readily available and from start to finish a pizza only takes 15 minutes prep time, and then a further 15 minutes in the oven- perfect for impatient children and grown-ups alike!

Whilst you might think pizza-making sounds labour intensive and slightly daunting, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Simple tips like rolling out the dough on baking paper and not being afraid to get messy will all add to the fun!

Watch the video with Carola Weymouth of Cookie Crumbles, who has teamed up with Persil Washing Up Liquid, to learn how fun and easy it can be to host your own pizza-making party for friends and family.

    What a brilliant idea! A great way to encourage young children to eat healthier by cooking from scratch! My daughter does a lot of baking with her friends at nursery, so this would be a great idea for her 4th birthday.

    This looks like so much fun. I will try it out with the grandchildren in the school holidays.
