Let the kids make the dough, roll it out and choose their own toppings. 

Share recipe


  • 7g dried yeast
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 800g '00' flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 230g Mattarello Tomato and Mascarpone Sauce
  • 250g grated mozzarella
  • 150g mini mozzarella balls


Step 1

Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas 9. Put the yeast and olive oil into a jug with 500ml warm water and leave for 3 mins to wake the yeast up.

Step 2

If you like, ask your children to weigh out the flour and tip into a big bowl with 1 tsp salt and sugar. Ask them to make a well in the middle and pour in the yeast mixture.

Step 3

Using a wooden spoon, they can gently mix until it starts to come together. Then tip it out onto a floured surface and get them to work the dough, pulling and squashing until it’s nice and smooth, about 5-8 mins. It can get quite tough, so particularly little ones may need a hand.

Step 4

Oil a large bowl and pop the dough in, cover with cling-film and leave in a warm place for at least 1 hr to rise.

Step 5

Once risen, tip the dough onto a floured surface and get them to work it a little more, as before. Grown-ups cut the dough into four even pieces and the kids can flatten the dough out, using a rolling pin. Aim for circles about 12-14in in diameter.

Step 6

Place onto baking trays then get the kids to spoon over the sauce, leaving a 1cm edge.

Step 7

Now they can add the cheese and any combination of toppings they like! Grown-ups place the pizzas into the oven to cook for 10-12 mins until golden and bubbling.

Step 8

Remove and serve immediately with a drizzle of extra virgin oil and fresh basil leaves.
