Pizza Making 101

Today, my daughter attended a pizza making activity cooked up by their school at Pizza Hut. Pizza lover myself, I love the idea of my daughter learning how to cook pizza. I remember Athena (a colleague) also blogged about her daughter’s “Pizza-making Camp” which was held at Greenwich. It’s more or less the same but with different pizza parlor this time.

So off we went to Pizza Hut Mambaling branch with my camera in tow. I don’t want to miss this milestone (if you may call it a milestone) in my daughter’s life. She was quite excited herself and was already up as early as 7am. It’s difficult to wake her up on normal days.

The steps are pretty easy for a four-year old to do.

First. The manager gave them a tour of the kitchen and showed them the equipment and where they store their ingredients.

. They were then instructed to wash their hands and make sure that it’s clean.

Third. Since the dough with tomato sauce has been prepared by Pizza Hut, the children will just have to spread the rest of the ingredients on top of it. They’re making a “ham and cheese” pizza so its basic ingredients are ham and cheese.

Fourth. The pan is then ready to be sent to the oven where it will be baked for 10 minutes.

Fifth. The fun part is where the children get to eat the pizza they prepared. Alex only ate a slice as she was busy chatting with her friends.

At the end of the activity, there were given certificates and balloons for having accomplished the Pizza Making Excellence (or something like that). We only paid a hundred pesos for the activity. Alex had fun as she was all smiles and laughter the entire time maybe because she was doing it with her friends.

And I'm a bit pissed off because all the pictures I took have shades of blue in them. It's like it got some virus or what but I'm bringing this to the technician hopefully tomorrow.
