Usually, at the weekends, we are dashing here, there and everywhere. Hubby plays cricket on a Saturday, the twins have clubs or a party, we like to go swimming on a Sunday, and more often than not somebody might also be visiting us! We therefore usually feel pretty worn out by Sunday evening!
But this weekend we had a nice, relaxing one and spent a lot of time together at home. We wanted to keep it fairly low-key seeing as the twins were back at preschool on Monday morning – and we wanted to unwind a little.
One of the things we like to do as a family is making food together. The twins now ask to ‘help’ me all the time when it comes to food preparation and baking, and whilst it does make me initially sigh!, when they get involved they do have SUCH fun. This kind of activity together is lovely and we all get to chat to each other and hang out too.
Pizza is one of our favourite foods and so on Sunday we set about making our own. Hubby picked up a new pizza stone in Aldi last week and so we wanted to use it. Granted it all got a bit messy and a bit crazy but we had such a good time!
The twins picked their own toppings (a LOT of cheese!) and got to do cool things like spread tomato puree all over the bases and rolled out dough.
As you can see – Hubby put a lot of ingredients on his (as shown above)! I went for roasted peppers, fresh tomato, onion, mozzarella and garlic butter. Delish!
We really enjoyed eating them after they were cooked (it takes just minutes if the stone is already very hot and the oven is on high). We like to make our bases quite thin.
If you don’t fancy making the dough you can also buy pre-made bases (which you can get in most supermarkets) and equally if you haven’t got a pizza stone then a baking tray works well too!
Happy cooking guys!
