The boys had fun yesterday baking pizza, and i had a blast too. Problem is, Carlo the oldest of my nephew (19 yrs old) is nursing a cough and a horrible cold (just to make it all the more perfect). Being a cancer survivor, just one sneeze even 2 meters away, as long as you are in my line of sight, mahahawa ako. 100% affirmative. When my niece who is 3 years old goes inside my room for a quick chat(meaning mangungulit lang), i will be coughing the whole night and the succeeding days thereafter.
The toppings were simple, you know kids, they hate stuff they do not know especially when the spelling does not compute. Carlo helped me with the mixing, he weighed everything and i greased the pans. I just think now that he is a lot older, he is more into it, or maybe it was his stomach making him oblige.?? When Angelica got wind of what we were doing outside, the caffeine in my coffee kicked in. She was the trigger. The quiet storm. And, just to make her stop bugging us, because she will repeat herself over and over anyway, i gave her some dough.
The 3 mini pizzas were hers, Carlo made the two large sized pizzas with their favorite Spam. I had a plain cheese and sauce with basil. Now, i know i should have just eaten two slices but i got carried away with all the fun. Luke, Mr. Birdie (because he is so obsessed with his Kalapatis (pigeons)i barely see him in the house joined the fun much later (lagi kasing wala sa bahay). Although we made two kilograms of dough, we finished much earlier maybe because we were just having that much fun, chatting, cracking jokes (mostly at Angelica's dough)etc., Natuto pa yung mga batang mag bake. Nagulat na lang ako marunong na si Angge mag round ng dough!!!
Below are more photos of the Pizzas the kids made.
Crisp on the outside and chewy inside. The pizzas were baked in a high 450 F oven. I used a sponge the create a more flavorful crust and also to speed up the mixing.
