Pizza Time with Kids

I think there is a reason – beyond simple biology – why people have children while they are young.  We entertained two children in the K-B Kitchen last week – ages 5 and 7 – and I swear to you, those two NEVER. STOPPED. MOVING.  If they weren’t engaged in the project at hand, they were twirling, jumping, waving their arms or colliding with each other.  Keeping up with them was a monumental task – and we only had to do it for two or so hours!!!  Parents are amazing!

Dorsey and Eleanor came to Kitchen Camp last Saturday for a couple of hours of Cooking with Kevin.  It was more fun than pretty much anything else we’ve done lately, and I mean for Kevin and me.  I hope the kids had fun too…

The goal was to make pizza – the crust, the sauce, the cheese, the works.

After hand-washing and apron-tying, the first task was to flour the board at their pint-sized table to prepare the dough for shaping.

Making the sauce was really fun – you got to use your hands to crush the tomatoes.  Neither cook wanted to taste the tomatoes, but Kevin insisted they do it so they could know how it needed to taste when the seasonings were added.  And then of course it was much easier to get them to try their finished sauce.

Okay, do you get the idea?  We’ll look at the rest of the pictures via a “slide-show”, with captions.

And then it’s time to eat!

We all had so much fun!  And as I told their Mom, I don’t think Kevin and I  looked at the clock more than twice…

  1. Great fun! Cooking with kids is a fun experience. I made biscuits with Sadie when I was in Texas. We made heart-shaped biscuits because her mom didn’t have a biscuit cutter, so we improvised with a heart-shaped cookie cutter! Worked like a charm.
