Mini Pitta Pizza
A perfect snack or teatime treat to make with the kids.
2 tbsp tomato puree
5 minutes preparation, 15 minutes cooking
From experience, toddlers, and children in general, are much more likely to try eating something new, if they helped to make it – this is a perfect recipe for involving the children in the kitchen, without causing too much mess or risk of injury.
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6.
Make sure the children have washed their hand, and place 2 whole pitta pockets on a low table that they can reach.
Ask the children to squeeze about a tablespoon’s worth of tomato puree onto each pitta pocket, and smooth around with the back of a wooden smooth, to ensure even coverage.
Add half of the grated cheese to the top of the pittas, and reserve the rest for later.
Ask the children to be creative and add the sliced mushrooms, ham, or whatever toppings you are using, to the pizzas. Try making funny faces or letters with the topping ingredients.
Add the rest of the grated cheese to the tops of the pizzas, distributing evenly.
Pop the finished pizzas on a baking sheet and cook in the middle of the pre-heated oven for approximately 10 – 15 minutes, or until the edges are crispy and the cheese is bubbling and starting to turn golden.
Allow to cool for a few minutes, and serve with a fresh salad or some seasonal veggies. Delicious!
