Saturday night take away’s or sleep overs can get expensive with so many little mouths to feed! Last night we decided to save cash on a Dominos and make our own pizza’s, which was a mega fun and very tasty!

If you haven’t done it before it’s so very easy. You can buy pre-made bases or make them from scratch using some flour, yeast and water – but for the best not too messy but still fun option, I’d suggest buying a kit.

We got the ‘Cook Italian Pizza Kit’ which costs only £1.63 and makes two medium sized pizzas. It comes with packet of base mix that you just add water to then knead and stretch out, a little carton of tomato for the base and some dried oregano. Then you just need to buy some cheese (already grated mozzarella and chedder works great, 2 packs for £3 at Morrions) toppings (we got ones we’ll use for packed lunches during the week) and make your perfect pizza!

Here’s mine pre and post cooking…

And it was delicious.

Ideal for;

  • Saving money on take aways
  • Sleep overs
  • Fun activity
  • Fussy eaters
  • Any ages
  • Time saving, prep 10 min, cook time 12
  • Promoting healthy eating

Why not have a go yourself?

  1. These look yum, and you’re right ordering a takeaway every weekend can get expensive. We really need to break that habit. I love the look of the pizzas you made, and so cheap too, I hope everyone enjoyed eating it. We’ve not made pizzas for a long time, I like to make the Polpo Pizzette pizzas that are really thin and cook in about 2 minutes. This blog post has made me hungry for pizza. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x
