My little boy, almost 3 years old, was watching CBeebies today when the new program 'I can cook' came on. It's a good idea for a show, with a presenter and some kids making something to eat together; todays recipe was Easy Peasy Pizza (all the recipes from the series can be found here) I quite fancied a pizza for lunch myself, so told my son he could make his own lunch which he was very excited about. He loves to cook, and we quite often make cakes together on rainy days.
But if he was making his own pizza, what were his Dad and I going to eat? Pizza seemed a sensible idea so we could share some of the prep, so to begin with I made a batch of gluten free flat bread, not quite as cooked as I would normally make it if I were eating it by itself. I mixed up some pizza sauce with tomato puree, garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar diluted with water to the right consistency and spread that over the bread. Then I added my toppings (today we had courgettes and red peppers) and finished with cheese.
Both pizzas went in the oven together and cooked for 10-15 minutes before we had a feast before our very eyes!
Now I think that looks pretty tasty considering it was made by an (almost) 3 year old!
I can testify that the adult version was really good though :)
