This recipe is fantastic at sneaking in healthy veg, as cauliflower rice goes into the pizza base. Kids can combine all the ingredients and mix to form a sticky dough. Hands can be used if it’s easier than a big spoon!

Step 2: On a roll

Using a rolling pin, kids can split the dough into three even portions and roll out the bases of their pizzas before they go into the oven. Points for the best circle shape!

Instruction tip
Top tip:

To avoid sticking, place a lightly floured piece of baking paper above and below the dough before rolling out. Peel off the top layer before cooking.
