Pizza Faces

Children will be delighted to help with these fun, easy to make pizzas and by letting them design their own faces with the healthy option vegetables they will be more likely to eat them!

This recipe makes 4 individual pizzas and takes about 30-45 minutes to prepare and cook ~ perhaps a little longer if the children get really creative!

Ingredients:

125g Wholemeal Flour

125g Self-raising Flour (plus extra for dusting)

1 tsp Baking Powder

Pinch Salt

75g low-fat margarine

15Oml Semi skimmed Milk (use as required to create a pliable dough)

Toppings: 150ml Passata (or ready made tomato sauce for bolognaise)

50g Mozzerella Cheese

50g Reduced Fat Cheese

Selection of fresh Vegetables (thinly sliced peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, Sweetcorn etc)

Pre-heat the oven to 200c, fan 180c, 400f, Gas 6.

Sieve the flours, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the margarine and rub into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix in sufficient milk to create a soft dough and turn onto a floured surface. Knead it lightly and divide into four equal pieces ~ and now the children can really take over ~ roll out the dough to a thickness of approximately 1cm and place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Spread the passata over the pizza and top with the grated cheese and some of the vegetables. Encourage the children to use more vegetables to create eyes, nose and mouth for their ’face’. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown.



Sometimes a good laugh is more important than low fat and low sugar so for a special seasonal treat why not try...........

Reindeer Poo!

Sure to bring a smile to the faces of children and carers alike it can be made with either Raisins, peanuts or both but please take care if nuts are being used with under three's and nut allergy sufferers.

Fluffy Fruit Delight

This is a simple to make and very tasty dessert requiring minimal preparation.

Use different jellies to produce different coloured desserts. Try layering these to produce traffic lights or lightly mixing the colours to produce taste and colour sensations.

Ingredients

26g Pack of sugar free fruit jelly of your choice

125ml of boiling water

125ml of cold water

400g Tin of Light Evaporated Milk

150g of fresh or frozen fruit.

Empty the contents of both sachets of jelly into a measuring jug and add the boiling water. Use the minimum amount of water necessary to get the crystals to dissolve then make up to 250ml with cold water. Allow to stand and cool but not set.

Pour the evapourated milk into a mixing bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for around 2 minutes until it becomes fluffy.

 (tip. Your dessert will be ready sooner if the milk is chilled in a fridge prior to use)

Add the cooled Jelly and continue whisking for around 30 seconds to ensure even mixing

Pour into a single large dish or 6 to 8 small dishes as preferred and place in a fridge until set.

Decorate the tops with fresh fruit or defrosted frozen fruit and enjoy.
