As your children grow older, birthdays allow you to create wonderful memories for them to look back on. While having a birthday party is a lot of fun, it can also be stressful for parents, especially when it comes to picking out the menu. Making something the kids will enjoy is important, but you also want to keep costs down while serving something nutritious. To ensure that everyone can enjoy the cake, you should also avoid using silverware and breakable plates when there are children in the house.

Easy Birthday Party Snacks – Ingredients

A vase of flowers on a table

For dusting, use an additional 300g of strong white bread flour

1 tbsp. of yeast, instant

olive oil 1 tbsp.

To make the tomato sauce:

Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, plus a drizzle

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

The passata is 200ml in size

For the icing:

small bunch of fresh basil and eight mini-mozzarella pearls. 

Easy Birthday Party Snacks – Method

First step: In a bowl, combine the flour, yeast, and 1 teaspoon of salt. To make a well in the middle, pour in 200ml of warm water (not too hot) along with the vegetable oil. Assemble all the ingredients with a wooden spoon until you have a soft, moist dough that holds its shape well.

Second step: Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic. The dough should be covered with a tea towel and let to rest for about an hour. As an alternative, place a tea towel on top of your dough and refrigerate overnight. The dough will continue to prove on its own.

Third step: Prepare the tomato sauce in the meantime. Fry the garlic briefly in a small amount of oil (do not let it brown) and then add the passata and cook until the sauce thickens. Allow cooling.

Fourth step: At this point, you can knock back the dough by rapidly folding and kneading, then turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and cut it into two balls. You’ll need to roll each ball into a large teardrop about 25cm wide (teardrop shapes fit baking sheets more easily than rounds).

Fifth step: When you’ve got a large baking sheet inside, turn on the oven to 240C/220 fan/gas 9. Place one of the bases on a second floured baking sheet and repeat the process. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella over the sauce and drizzle with olive oil before seasoning. Continue to bake for 8-10 minutes, until the crust is crisp, with the pizza still on the baking sheet.
