Recipe by Kate Morris and Sally Brown
- 75g self-raising flour

- 5 grapes
- 25g Red Leicester or Cheddar cheese, grated

Time to wash your hands
It’s great fun being a kid, but little hands can get a bit messy with all the exploring they do.
So before helping mum and dad in the kitchen, you need to make sure your hands are nice and clean by giving them a jolly good scrub.
Roll up your sleeves, make lots of lovely lather with the soap and get scrubbing.
Don’t forget your fingernails, those pesky germs like to use them as a hiding place.
All done? Dry them off with a clean towel, put on your apron and you’re ready to start cooking!
What to do
Line the baking tray with baking paper
Put the flour and the butter together in a bowl. Rub the butter and flour with your fingers until it becomes like crumbs. Add the milk (you may not need all of it) and stir into a dough with the fork, then make the dough into a ball shape with your hands.
Dust some flour on the workmat and put the ball of dough on top. Flatten it with your hand into a pizza base, then place it on the baking tray.
What to do
Put the tomatoes in a clean bowl and chop them up using clean scissors. (Remember, when using scissors, ‘everyone knows, it’s best to point them at your toes’!) Spoon the chopped tomatoes on to the pizza base.
Pull the leaves off the rosemary stalk and sprinkle them over the tomatoes. Add a pinch of pepper and put the grapes on top.
Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top. You’ll need to ask an adult for help with this part. Place in a preheated oven, 200°C fan, 220°C, Gas Mark 7, for 10-15 minutes.
Once the Easy Peasy Pizza has cooled down a little, you can eat it!
