There is always something to learn when you’re two years old. The biggest challenge for me is teaching the girls to work along side me, making pizza, doing the dishes, working in the garden. They eat the pizza dough, dump water everywhere, and stomp on my “baby plants”. But. But they learn a lot too, and it really pays off. I’ve been amazed at how it affects their confidence, how proud they are to feel they are a part of things, AND how they are helpful at time already. But I tell you it takes real love and work and dedication. And sometimes I just have to give in and tell they they are all done helping with pizza and it’s time to watch a movie. If this is something you have been working towards and thinking about there is more food for thought here and here.
Fridays are homemade pizza nights at our house. You might want to check out this no-kneed pizza dough recipe. I’ve been using the same idea with a sourdough starter instead of yeast. I pat out the dough on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and put baking stones to heat on the grill, load all the ingredients up on the dough (we grate all the cheese once for a couple of  Friday nights, to make it easier) and slip them off the cookie sheet onto the baking stones. It takes between 10 and 15 minutes to bake. Some times it needs to be rotated half way through. I never thought making homemade pizza could make such a fun easy family meal. And it doesn’t heat up the kitchen *smile*. But whatever you do this weekend, I hope you enjoy it.
