Kids love cooking pizza!

Did you involve your kids in cooking salmon fishcake? I believe that it was an interesting experience worth to try again. Yes, try again with a different recipe: Potato Crust Veggie Pizza. It is a super healthy recipe, where many vegetables play a crucial role in making this dish not only healthy but delicious for your kids.

Now let’s start engaging to work your kids. The ingredients that you need to cook this pizza are:

2 cups uncooked , firmly-packed grated potatoes
1 teaspoon Salt
½ medium yellow onion, small dice
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
2 Eggs, beaten
1 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Involve kids in doing these activities during the preparation of Potato Crust Veggie Pizza: Grate the potatoes, then place in a large bowl, then add salt and mix thoroughly.

Place potatoes in a colander and let set for 10 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water using a small bowl, pressing down on the potatoes. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onion, flour, and eggs. Butter a 15×10-inch baking sheet. Put potato mixture into prepared baking sheet.

Now after the first stage of veggie pizza preparation, you as an adult supervisor, start your own job by:

Preheating oven to 218° C. Once the kids have finished with the potato mixture, bake 15 minutes. Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil and then bake another 10 minutes. Place under broiler; broil 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and return oven temperature to 218° C.

Regarding veggie topping, the ingredients are:

½ medium-sized zucchini squash, thinly sliced into rounds
½ medium-sized yellow squash, thinly sliced into rounds
½ medium-sized yellow bell pepper, chopped
½ medium-sized red Bell Pepper, chopped
½ Red Onion, thinly sliced and chopped
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
8 cherry Tomatoes, quartered
4-5 fresh basil leaves, stems removed, cut or torn into thin strips
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded

The kids can prepare and measure out all ingredients before starting recipe.

In a large bowl, combine zucchini, summer squash, yellow pepper, red pepper, onion, garlic and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once the vegetable mixture is cooked, spread cooked vegetables and cherry tomato quarters over baked potato crust. Sprinkle with basil and mozzarella cheese.

Afterwards, you, as the adult supervisor heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Sauté the vegetable mixture until they are crisp tender, stirring often. Remove pan from heat, let cool so the kids can spread the crust with vegetable mix, basil and cheese. Bake approximately 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Remove from heat and serve pizza immediately.
