Pizza making is a great way to get your little foodie involved in the kitchen. Why not lay out a selection of toppings for them to create their own pizza - this will help develop a positive relationship with food and encourage them to try new ingredients. Pizza is also perfect finger food for tiny hands. Pack in the veg, and cut up for your baby.

Topping Ideas:

Bored of regular tomato sauce? Our pouches are packed with veg, and perfect to be used as pizza sauce. Pick a flavour and give it a go as your base. Then add your choice of toppings:

  • Homemade pesto.
  • Cut up vegetables.
  • Roast chicken.             
  • Tuna, or other fish of choice.          
  • Cheese of choice.
  • Try adding some herbs for extra flavour.
