Artisan Pizza Dough

by Vicky


Every kid loves pizza and it’s super easy to make from scratch. LittleChef2 is our resident pizza expert. He has mastered the homemade dough and branched out into creating his own spin on different pizzas. His last creation was cheese stuffed crusts. His brothers thanked him greatly for it!  They even offered to buy him a Sonic milkshake for his tasty efforts.  Gotta love boys, everything is related to their stomachs!

LittleChefTip: Tear off little pieces of dough and let each kid make their very own little pizza.  They love to play with their food 🙂
