[Baby’s Pizza] How?
Preparation of ingredients
Step 1: Pizza
150 g of high gluten flour, 75 g of water, 7 g of dry yeast, 15 g of olive oil and 7 g of white granulated sugar.
2. Pizza Main
50 g corn kernels, 50 g green beans, 100 g mozzarella cheese, 3 slices of bacon and a proper amount of ketchup.
Tip: Here is a suitable amount for a family of three. You can make one large pizza with a diameter of 30 cm and two small pizzas with a diameter of 12 cm.
Step 1 Mix dough
In order to better ferment dough, It is recommended to prepare 75 g of warm water (about 40 ℃), Then pour the yeast into warm water, Stir and let stand for 5 minutes. Then pour flour, olive oil and white granulated sugar together. Stir up and down with a scraper until the dough is formed and then knead by hand. The kneaded dough should have a smooth surface. The dough for pizza does not need to be kneaded until it comes out of the film, let alone glove film. Place the kneaded dough in a bowl, wrap it in wet gauze, and leave in a warm place to ferment quietly for 30 minutes.
Step 2 Prepare Main Material
While fermenting, prepare the main ingredients of the pizza. Blanch the frozen corn kernels and green beans in water, heat the water for another 2 minutes, then drain. Fry the bacon slightly on both sides in a pan, then cut into small pieces for later use. Cut the cheese pieces into small pieces for later use.
STEP 3 Make flour cakes
When the volume of the dough is almost 2 times larger, it is fermented. Divide the fermented dough into 3/4 and 1/4 portions. The large portion is for parents and the small portion is for baby. Rub the lower portion slightly for exhaust and knead it round. Then press it into a dough cake. Use a rolling pin to knead it into a cake shape and try to make it round.
Then brush a little olive oil in a non-stick pan, Place the pancake on top and heat it over low heat. Turn off the heat when the pancake starts to bubble. Heat the pancake in a pan to set the pancake and make the bottom of the pancake crisp. After turning off the fire, take advantage of the residual heat, smear a proper amount of ketchup on the surface, then spread the cheese crumbs on the surface and spread the other main ingredients.
Step 4 Bake Pizza
Preheat the oven at 200 ℃. After the oven is preheated, put the flour cake into the oven and adjust the oven temperature to 180 ℃ for 15 minutes.
Then the oven tinkled and the homemade pizza was ready. After cutting with a knife, taste the fruits of your hard work. Oh, by the way, don’t forget to cut the little pizza for the little baby.
Nutritional Value of Homemade Pizza
The raw materials in the homemade pizza can be controlled by oneself. On the basis of matching meat and vegetables and ensuring nutrition, it can also be adjusted according to the age and taste of the baby. Mushrooms, shrimps, black olives, beef grains, diced chicken grains, vegetable grains… All kinds of ingredients can be added.
In this way, pizza has all kinds of staple food and side dishes. At the same time, compared with other western foods, pizza has relatively lower fat content and can provide more comprehensive nutrition.
Cheese is rich in calcium, and when eaten together with other main ingredients, the protein complementary effect of food is better, and the absorption and utilization rate are also improved. However, its sodium content is relatively high, so the one given to children can be put in less amount.
Cut the pizza into small pieces, which are suitable for the baby to grab with his hand and help the baby exercise his ability to eat.
How old is the baby to eat?
Home-made pizza is generally recommended for babies over 2 years old. Because the brushed mozzarella cheese is slightly sticky to teeth, the baby needs to have certain chewing ability. The baby usually doesn’t like it very much and spits it out directly, but the flour cake and main ingredients can still be eaten.
In addition, when eating pizza, you can also prepare another sample soup for your baby, such as milk-flavored pumpkin soup, broccoli mushroom soup, etc. The combination of dry and wet can make your appetite bigger.
