Culinary Corner: Mini Hawaiian Pizzas

7th April 2017

Cooking with children mini Hawaiian pizzas

Mmm pizza. Who doesn’t love pizza? Here’s a recipe inspired by the families of Wallaby Street Early Learning Centre that the children will not only love but can help make too.

These pizzas are quick to make thanks to the ready-made pitas and a perfect snack or a meal on their own. We encourage children to get involved by adding the toppings and, of course, the eating!
