Separately, teach him to prepare the sauce for his delicacy, mixing the ketchup or soy sauce with a little water, salt, pepper and what other spices he prefers.

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup thick cream

Pizza from pita and goodies


1 pita with the largest diameter

Then, encourage him to strategically place the toppings on the surface of the counter (less mozzarella). In the meantime, you light the oven to be hot. After you're done with all the ingredients, cover everything well with mozzarella slices and place pizza in the oven, but don't let the child sit too close to the oven.
