Practice makes perfect. We had plenty of practice making pizza in our pretend restaurant.
A fun song to sing about pizza had us all spelling...
There is a treat that's good to eat
and pizza is its name, oh!
P-I-Z-Z-A, P-I-Z-Z-A. P-I-Z-Z-A
And pizza is its name, oh!
Play dough pizzas gave us a chance to practice some more pizza making.
When art meets pizza amazing creativity and language happen...
It was fun making pizzas on the parachute. We each picked our favorite as we stirred up the dough and added the ingredients. Our favorite part was going under and pushing the "dough" up to the sky.
One day, we made fruit pizzas for snack. Instead of pizza crust, we had cookie dough. The pizza sauce was replaced with cream cheese. The toppings were a variety of fruit!
Making a pizza is really an art- edible art! We had so much fun creating our real pizzas. Unlike in our book, Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza,
we did not rely on someone to make our pizzas for us. We each made our own.
First, we sprayed the pan with cooking spray so our pizzas would come easily out of the pan.
We also sprinkled cornmeal over the spray to give our crust a nice texture.
We rolled and patted out the dough to place in our pans.
Next, we spooned and spread on the sauce.
Adding toppings was loads of fun. We got to choose from all kinds of meats and veggies.
And of course, everybody's favorite, cheese!
Such amazing creations...
And now for the best part...eating them!
