Ground rules are important
You’re working with a very hot Roccbox and probably some sharp objects too, it’s key to establish some ground rules early on. Only adults touch certain things, no picking your nose and that sort of thing. You could write your 5 kitchen commandments on a blackboard at the start.
Make a plan and draw a picture
Once the rules are in place and on the wall, a fun exercise is to get everyone to draw their pizzas first. It’s a fun, creative process that can help with speeding up the pizza making later and avoid any slowly made pizzas from getting stuck to peels!
Sneak in the healthy stuff
We’re not sure why, but kids seem more willing to eat healthy stuff on pizzas- particularly if they’ve drawn something green on their pizza drawing beforehand! Broccoli and peppers are great on pizza and the colours look bright and vibrant, making it pretty easy to convince the little ones that they have to have them on their pizza.
Plenty of toppings
Make sure you’ve got plenty of everything on hand- tantrums can derail the whole day if you run out of something! A wide range of choice also gives everyone the chance to experiment and have fun. But be conscious not to let anyone overload the pizzas too much…
A chance to learn
Teach as you go throughout the day passing on as much knowledge as possible- you may have a future Michelin chef in your midst! As well as teaching cookery skills and creativity, pizza parties are a good opportunity to teach fractions when you slice the pizzas if the kids are a bit older too!
