Children use puff pastry to design their own mini pizzas. N.B. Pizzas will need to go in to a hot oven to cook for between 10 and 15 mins. So activity needs to be completed at least 20 mins before meeting end time if they are being taken home.
Ingredients: Puff pastry, grated cheese, tomato base sauce, tomatoes, ham, salami, sweetcorn (onion, chopped pepper, olives)
Utensils: Rolling pins (at least 2), round large cookie cutter(s), chopping boards, flour shaker, knives (can be quite blunt), baking sheets covered with baking parchment. Pen.
Children wash their hands, then give each child a ball of puff pastry. Children use the flour shaker to dust the work surface then roll out their dough.
Then decide what they want to decorate their pizza with. Ham/Salami/Tomatoes are uncut so that they can cut them up themselves.
Pizzas placed on baking sheet and child marks their name on the baking parchment next to their pizza.
