Pizza Party

Nanzaro’s class is having a Pizza Party just prior to the Winter break. This is another fun project for the class. The students got to make pizza all by themselves. The class is divided in groups of five and they made the pizza from scratch, from making the dough and choosing their own toppings.


The class had so much fun doing this project. It’s the best pizza they ever had because of their labour of love.





The recipe for the pizza dough is very simple and that is the beauty of it; good for classroom project.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2/3 cup lukewarm water (plus an additional 2 tablespoons)


  1. Mix 1 cup of flour with all other ingredients.
  2. Gradually add 2nd cup of flour until it forms a ball. Use your hands to from and knead the dough.
  3. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and lightly oil the dough by rotating it in the oiled bowl.
  4. Let the dough rest 10-15 minutes in a bowl covered with a dish tower or saran to keep it warm.
  5. Spread out onto greased pizza pan and top with your favourite toppings.
  6. Bake at 425F for approximately 15 minutes.

Pizza Hut

Believe it or not but we have NOT been to a Pizza Hut or called for delivery for almost seven years now. We always get their flyers all the time at home and told ourselves we should try them out — we just never did … until about four weeks ago.

Most of the Pizza Huts around were small delivery places or stalls in the mall. However, there is a full service Pizza Hut in Richmond on 8340 Westminster Hwy.


For the pizza we ordered their “4-For-All” Pizza which comprises of four different types of pizzas — cheese, supreme, pepperoni and Canadian. That’s is great because the boys loves pepperoni and cheese but I don’t care too much for them.

Naan Pizza

Cheese and bread make the cheeks red.
~ German Proverb

This is Suanne’s invention — a good one I must say. Suanne always had a problem making thin crust pizza, you know, the type that is crispy and crunchy. Until today she has not managed to get the dough just right. So, she substituted the dough with Naan bread. Here is what her Naan Pizza looks like:


The beauty of this pizza is that it’s very fast to make and it taste just great-n-crispy. Most important of all, there are no dishes to wash. This takes only 20 minutes to make. Suanne makes this for breakfast every now and then. You may want to consider making this for lunch with more toppings like pepperoni, roasted chicken, etc.

To make this you need the following five items: Naan bread, pizza sauce, shredded mozarella cheese, parmesan cheese and some herbs. We buy all these from the Real Canadian Superstore and does not cost much.

The Naan bread costs about $3.59 for a pack of 12 pieces. For the herbs, we use Mrs Dash for flavouring. We like Mrs Dash and used that with eggs, spaghetti, etc. It’s healthier than using seasoning salt in our opinion. We estimated that it will costs about $1.25 to make each piece. The most expensive ingredient is the mozzarella (about 2/3 of the total costs).
