What’s better than a pizza party? A homemade pizza party!


Makes: 2 adult or 4 toddler portions
Difficulty: easy


  • 2 cups of self-raising white flour
  • A very small pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable margarine or butter
  • 1 1/4 cup of milk
  • A pinch of herbs (basil or oregano is 
  • Olive oil
  • 4 large tomatoes, chopped or 2 cans of 
chopped tomatoes
  • Toppings of your choice


To make the dough, pour the flour into a bowl, add the pinch of salt and mix. Then rub in the margarine or butter until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add the milk and mix into a soft dough. 
Next, turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out the dough to the size and shape of your choice and place on a baking sheet(s). 
Spread the tomatoes on top and add the topping(s) of your choice. Then, season with herbs and pepper and drizzle over
 a little olive oil. Leave in a warm place for 20 – 30 minutes or until puffy around the edges.

Finally, bake in the oven at 425°F for 20 – 30 minutes (depending on size) or until golden brown and bubbling.

Neat cheats

Mini Pizzas! – 10 minutes

Try our tasty pizza cheat! For each person use a muffin, whole-wheat pita or bagel, or a thick slice of bread as a base.

Take your base and spread with tomato puree. Sprinkle with cheese of your choice, herbs and whatever topping you fancy and then pop in the oven at 375°F.

5 for 10 minutes or under the grill until the cheese is melted and gooey. Yum!

Make it together!

Children can be involved in mixing the dough, choosing the toppings, spreading the tomato puree, cutting up the ingredients (supervised), grating the cheese
 or arranging the ingredients on the pizza base – try making pizza faces! An example toddler portion for this would be 1 – 2 small slices or 1/4 – 1 mini pizza.

Messy fun! Sheena x
