It’s not rocket science: kids love pizza. And Moms love anything that can be made quickly that their kids will eat. Welcome SPACE PIZZA! This one is vegan and not gluten-free, but you can titrate it easily.
Preheat oven to 450. Mix the pack yeast with the lukewarm water until the yeast is dissolved. Let it stand for two minutes. Then add the salt and vegetable oil and mix it up. Add the flour, and mix. If it seems too liquidy, add more flour. Roll out the dough, and place on pan or pizza stone. Sprinkle cornmeal all over it then gently pat it in. We just use our cast iron pan – it makes a nice deep dish style pizza. Put it in the oven for 5 minutes, then remove it from the oven. Spoon on sauce evenly, then add cheese and toppings, then pop back in oven for 15 minutes. Voila!
The trick: Get the kids involved in making this. Talk about Saturn’s rings (which according to Wikipedia; “The rings of Saturn are the most extensive planetary ring system of any planet in the Solar System. They consist of countless small particles, ranging in size from micrometres to metres, that orbit about Saturn. The ring particles are made almost entirely of water ice, with a trace component of rocky material.”) Dinner then becomes a science lesson, making you the world’s best Mom.
