This morning we were making everyone’s favourite – pizza! 😀

IMG_3171

Ingredients:

  • Capsicum/red pepper
  • Tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Spinach
  • Mushrooms
  • Ham
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Tomato pizza sauce
  • Pizza base

Everyone split into groups and we made six pizzas in total. Each group chopped and prepared their own ingredients and ‘decorated’ their pizzas as best they could while the oven was heating up. Then it was only 15 minutes to cook them!

See the creative results before they hit the oven!
