Num Noms Wacky Bakers

At home we love cooking and eating together as a family. We all are so busy individually and one of my house rules is that we all sit and eat together for our evening meal, or tea as we call it in our house! No tablets, no phones, no distractions!

We were excited to be asked to write a post about baking with the Num Noms. Num Noms are collectible little scented characters - we love them and in fact I would go as far as to say that Rosie especially s a little bit obsessed with them. She likes to pick them up and serve them to me as a meal, or just trap them in a small space and watch them motor around endlessly.

For our bakers challenge we decided that we would make a pizza at home from scratch. If you follow this blog you will know that our girls are a little bit obsessed with pizza - if we ever go to a food festival or anything like that we tend to pick them pizza as a treat - we know that they love it and will eat it all. So when I explained to the girls that we could actually bake our own pizza base and create our own toppings they were very excited.

Rosie got stuck in with rolling out the dough
Alice was all in for putting the sauce on and sprinkling cheese afterwards

Rosie opted for a plain cheese pizza and Alice got stuck in with cheese, ham and salami on hers. The eldest (who obviously did not want to be pictured for teen mood swings reasons) rolled out a huge thin base and put on tomato base, tuna, sweetcorn, onion and cheese. She then promptly took it up to bed refusing to tidy anything up.

The end product!
I must say, I hadn't made pizza bases for a while and they turned out great. (Obviously this was more to do with the kids involvement than mine!) 

We loved baking together and we think the end product was fab - not a scrap left in the house!

Disclosure: We were sent some Num Noms as a gift and enjoyed baking our pizza as part of this project.
