All time favourite

I haven't been offering pizza to my kids for quite some time. With dad being away, this will be the perfect timing. We usually do simple meal when he is not around as he is a much bigger eater than us. Generally a one dish meal is good enough for us.

Comparing my kids with my friends', I am pretty happy that they are not really considered fussy eaters. I think on the whole, my kids are easy to feed which makes my life really simple.


Like yesterday, we offered pork porridge for lunch and my girl actually had three bowls. Talking about this little one, I think I have to manage her diet properly or else she will grow to be a little hippo like me. Whereas for my son, if given a chance, he will snack on sweet stuff only. With him being in school the whole day, it is quite hard to manage his food intake. Though he is average in height but he is also skinny.

I am such a worrier that they don’t eat well and become scrawny but hubby always ensure me that our son has fat genes (by looking at his baby photos) so eventually he will put on weight.


When my kids learnt that I am going to make Pizza, they were excited. Already my son wanted salami and my girl, lots of cheeses. Even my helper can’t help to contain her excitement and put in her order of shrimps!

I once again used my most trusted Olive Oil dough which gives a very lovely texture. I tried my best to spread it thinnly to achieve that crusty bites. Simply delicious!

As a mother, I am always happy to see my kids enjoying their meals. Do you?

What you need:

15g fresh yeast
500g bread flour
10g salt
50g olive oil
320g water


Rub yeast into flour to become crumb like. Add in salt, olive oil and water. Mix till you form a dough.

Pour onto the table and knead to form an elastic dough.

Let it proof for 1 hour till it doubles the volume.

Divide dough into three. Shape into a ball and let it rest for 10 mins.

Floured table and take one ball and shaped it into a flat dough, using your heel of the palm and push from centre outwards. Keep stretching till you achieved a round pizza shape of around 20cm.

Life the pizza bases to a floured baking pan and top with your favourite toppings.

Bake at 240 degree for 10 - 12 mins or till golden brown.
