How to make a vegetable pizza or vegetable flatbread pizza for kids

Step 1:

Take out the pizza crust from the packaging and tear it into 2 or 3 pieces so that you can make mini-sized personal pizzas.

Once you tear them, unroll each of the pieces and form them into little balls of dough.

Step 2:

Take the dough balls and pull and rotate them in your hand to form a circular shape. You could also put it on a pan and spread it to form the shape.

Step 3:

Once the base is formed, use a fork to punch holes in it making sure it doesn’t become too thick. Do not do this on the crust if you want your crust to be fluffier and higher than the middle.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4:

Add pizza sauce to the personal-sized doughs using a spoon or brush.

This is the perfect time to let kids start in this activity. Give them their individual pizzas and allow them to add the sauce as they wish.

Step 5:

Bake the pizza for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven.

Step 6:

While the pizza bakes, cut the vegetables, sausages, and all other toppings into different sizes. It is better to cut them into both strips and rings, maybe even cubes, so there will be more options for the little ones to play with their imagination.

Step 7:

Once the pizza has prebaked, take it out and let it cool for a while. Be sure to keep it away from the kids while it is hot, to prevent any unwanted accidents.

Step 8:

When the pizza has cooled down, make it snow with the shredded cheese, and cover the entire base with it.

It could be a scenery, a garden, a face, or just their version of abstract art. Whatever it is, it’s more important that they have a good time while making it.
