Noughts and Crosses Pizza

The best way to bring up independent kids is to catch them early. Pique their interest in cooking through interesting recipes like this, and watch them enjoy their time in the kitchen.

This love of cooking will grow with the years. The Noughts and Crosses Pizza is a fun way to make kids help in the kitchen. A sauce-lined base with crisscrossing cheese lines makes the playing board while crosses of capsicum and noughts of tomatoes and onions make the players’ coins.

Now you and your kids can play a mind-boggling game while preparing the pizza for baking!

You can change the toppings as you like, but remember to season it well before baking, so that the aroma fills the house and brings everyone to the table to taste the food lovingly cooked by the kids!
