untitledKids are able to help with every step of the recipe from making the dough from scratch, cutting vegetables, spreading sauce, assembling toppings, and popping their personal pizzas in the oven. Our students were encouraged to put each kind of veggie on their pizza. Some loaded their pizzas up with veggies, some just used mushrooms, others with just the peppers. This recipe kept our students busy the entire class! While the pizza’s were baking, our class played a ‘Brain Break: True or False’ activity game related to healthy eating where they used certain body movements as their answer. This activity allowed the kids to move around and be active while learning some cool new facts!

 
 
To make our pizzas used whole grain flour, Organics tomato pizza sauce, mushrooms, bell peppers, spinach, and shredded mozzarella. This recipe is very easy to modify to you or your child’s liking. Whether you switch up the veggies, add some meat, or follow the recipe exactly, this is a fun and delicious item to make with your family!

Crust
  1. 1 3/4 cup whole wheat
  2. 1 envelope yeast
  3. 1/2 tsp. salt
  4. 2/3-cup warm water
  5. 2 tbsp. olive oil
  6. Additional flour for kneading
Toppings
  1. 1-cup pizza sauce
  2. 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
  3. Other toppings spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, basil, mushrooms, olives, etc.
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. 2. Combine undissolved yeast and very warm water into bowl. Leave it alone for a little bit.
  3. 3. Then, add the oil and salt and stir. Add 1 ½ cup of flour and mix until well blended, about 1 minute. 4. You can do this in a food processor or mixer but we did it by hand. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.
  4. 5.Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
  5. 6.Pat dough with floured hands to fill pizza pan or baking sheet. (Can use parchment paper.)
  6. 7.Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough.
  7. 8.Spread with pizza sauce.
  8. 9.Top with desired toppings and sprinkle with cheese.
  9. 10. Bake on lowest oven rack for 10-12 minutes for large pizza and about 8 minutes for mini-pizzas, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
  10. 11. ENJOY!
Notes
  1. This recipe is very easy to modify to you or your child's liking, you can switch up the veggies and/or add some meat. You can also take this recipe one step further by making your own homemade pizza sauce!
