Reimer’s homemade pizza

Who doesn’t like pizza?  Oh I love pizza and my favorite one is that of Domino’s Mighty Meaty Pizza… mmmm yum!  Both my kids especially Reimer equally loves Pepperoni Pizza too.  I am under the impression that kids love pizza solely for its simplicity, familiarity of contained ingredients and most importantly its taste.  Am I right?

It’s been a while now since Reimer once told me that they have made some pizza in school.  He even boasted that it’s so easy to make as there’s only 5 steps to it.   I reckon him carefully enumerating the steps while pointing his fingers was a hint that we should attempt at making one at home too.   Honestly, I’m always impressed of his eagerness to learn, to experience and to see things in his own naked eyes anything he learned in school or in television.   He’s a very inquisitive child burning with curiosity and hungry for knowledge, a character of him which I adore.

Last Sunday while we were walking home from church, he ardently mentioned it again.  Well, I was off work that day and we had all the ingredients available at home, so why not, I can’t always say no to him because that will discourage and dishearten him.  I would like him to be always as determined as he is, and be interested to do things for the enhancement of his intelligence.  So as soon as we arrived home, we get on cracking with it.

Reimer’s 5 steps Homemade Pizza:

1.  Prepare the ingredients. 

Slice bread, Tomato paste and cheese are the 3 basic ingredients.  Luckily when I checked our fridge and bread dispenser, we all got the ingredients needed.

2.   Spread Tomato Paste.

Reimer placed 2 pieces of sliced bread in the baking pan.  He then squeezed out a generous amount of tomato paste over it and spread them evenly.



3.   Sprinkle grated cheese.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have mozzarella cheese on the fridge but we do have a block of cheddar cheese so we just used it instead.   If you noticed, Reimer is left handed and really struggling to use the grater properly, so I gave him a hand on this one.


4.   Cook the pizza.

Place the prepared pizza in a preheated 180 degrees celsius oven and cook until cheese melted.   Apparently because oven is hot, he needed mummy to help him put the baking pan in and out of the oven.


5.  Eat the pizza.

Of course, the best part of all was eating time.  I’ve sliced it into two to make it easier to eat for them.   Can you tell how Reimer can’t wait to eat his pizza?  However, Ruby was not too keen on it.  I think she was a bit full after shoving a sausage roll down her throat already.


Overall, making his homemade pizza was pretty straight forward and less complicated which makes it a good start for teaching kids with kitchen skills.   This definitely goes well with my blog post about Kids on chores. 

I did try Reimer’s homemade pizza as well and in all fairness, it doesn’t taste that bad.  I think in the future, we may need to add a few toppings on it to give it more flavor.   Perfect for a quick snack if kids fancy a pizza with only limited ingredients available at home.

I’m so pleased with him, he only shown me how clever he is.  He was also overly chuffed of himself.  I’m glad I trusted him with this one and sure enough, he did shine and made himself proud.

Have your little one helped you with cooking?

Does your kids love pizza too?

  • Such a great idea to get kids involved in cooking their own food. Far healthier than the shop bought option too, and more likely to get eaten if they made it themselves. #BloggerclubUK

  • We often make pizza at home, you can buy the packs of pizza dough mix which you just add water too! Only problem I have is my daughter won’t eat melted cheese, so hers is always rather boring! #KCACOLS

    • ReimerandRuby

      I didn’t know you can actually buy a pizza dough mix, would find one in supermarket I think. Yes, some kids can be quiet awkward, my kids doesn’t really like meat on their pizza apart from pepperoni, but they liked it better when plain. Thanks for dropping by!

  • Ah bless him he looks like he did really well! Thanks for linking up to #TheList x

      He did feel so proud that he made pizza by himself with little help from mummy. So so true, kids definitely loves pizza. Thanks for stopping by.

  • That’s so awesome, he should be proud of himself! We used to have pizzas a bit like this in school but on rolls not bread.

    • ReimerandRuby

      He actually learned this recipe from school and he was so eager to try it at home too. Thanks for dropping by.

  • Well done Reimer the pizza looks delicious! We also do something similar but we use pitta bread as a base. If find it great for play dates as they all get to make their own. I pre-prepare all the toppings beforehand and they simply choose what they want to add to it. Es favourites is salami! #KCACOLS

    • ReimerandRuby

      That’s a great alternative for pizza base, I love pitta bread too and I think it would make pizza more delicious. It’s nice when kids can choose their own topping as well so for sure they’ll eat it. Thanks for stopping by.
