Puddle Lane Pizza

At our children’s nursery, confidence in baking and cooking grows with each new and well-loved food discovery. A recent recipe we followed was pizza.

Children are highly engaged as they measure ingredients for the base, watching intently as they wait for the scales to balance. All the while learning new words together as they follow the recipe to knead and proof their pizza dough before baking.

Engaging in this first-hand experience enables children to learn real life skills through play by being directly involved in each stage of the process, including:

  • Gathering & organising equipment
  • Preparing & exploring ingredients
  • Mixing & measuring
  • Playing safely
  • Interacting & communicating with others
  • Sharing food with family & friends at home
