As we gathered around the carpet for story time, we had to make a decision on what we wanted to bake on Friday. As the children began to share their ideas, they all came to a quick agreement to make Pizza once again! The children decided what different ingredients and toppings they would like to bring for this recipe.
When we returned to school Friday morning we were excited to get to work.
First on the list would be to make the dough…
The children worked together finding the correct measurement amounts for the water, yeast, salt,sugar and olive oil….
As they waited for the yeast to become active, we began adding our flour measurement into the food processor..
“H” looked for the ON,OFF and Dough buttons as he prepared the dough….He also read these these words to his friends and showed them how to use it as we continued making more dough.
Once the dough was ready we were able to bring our the rolling pins and roll our dough out….
We added our sauce….
Then we had lots of fun pouring a WHOLE bag of cheese on top of the sauce….
The children also decided they wanted pepperoni and sliced tomato pieces on one pizza.
So they got a little practice cutting tomatoes. ;-D
One of our delicious Cheese Pizza’s!
Making Pizza was a hit and everyone enjoyed eating 2-3 pieces of it! We cant wait to make it again.
