My little granddaughter, Leah, is two and a bit and loves cooking and baking – just like her mum. In a bit of a hurry (inspiration came late) I created this pizza with a variety of ingredients for her to play with in her ‘kitchen’.
The pizza is divided into 4 slices so everyone can have a slice each. The base is two layers of felt with a layer of heavy weight Lutradur between to stiffen it up. I hand sewed the side edges of the slices, slipped the stiffener in between and then sewed a line of stitching about an inch in from the outside edge. This is a ‘stuffed crust’ pizza so I stuffed the outer area and then hand sewed the outer edge closed.
Now come the ingredients for making the best pizza in Scotland! The tomato sauce is a piece of red felt cut to fit inside the stuffed crust. On top of that is the mozzarella layer – cut just smaller than the tomato layer.
The mushrooms, tomato slices, onions and chorizo slices are all stitched on two layers of felt. The green peppers are a single layers though maybe another time I would make them out of two layers.
I hope that you will be inspired to create some pizzas for your own budding chefs and will share ingredients you have created.
