Little Chefs Cook-Along | Feel Like A Kid Again


What is the Little Chefs Cook-Along?

It’s A virtual Cook-Along called Feel Like a Kid Again, part of The Little Chefs Project series on The Motherhood.

The Little Chefs Project series consists of six Cook-Alongs, taking place every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET between October 11 and November 15, and each Cook-Along covers a different topic around cooking with kids. Feel Like a Kid Again addresses how you can feel like a kid again in the kitchen, and how your own kids bring back those memories for you.

Ethan was hungry and we both decided it was a great day for pizza. We typically make our pizza crust from scratch, but that takes a while and we wanted to eat now. Fortunately for us Chef Boyardee’s Pizza Maker kit is quick and easy!


Ethan helped me check the directions to make sure we knew what to expect. We got our supplies together and started our dough. I love that this kit is simple enough for the kids to do almost on their own with adult supervision.


Ethan felt so big pouring the mix and water into the bowl all on his own. Amazingly, that is all it takes to make the dough! With a little help from Mommy he mixed the dough and water and then we set it aside for 5 minutes to rise. During that time we picked our toppings from the fridge.


The dough was a little sticky and hard for a 4 year old to manipulate into the pan so I took over, but as soon as the dough was spread Ethan set to work on the sauce and cheese. At this point my husband walked in and watched for a bit. He told us a story about how every Friday when he was growing up his family would make pizza from a box (like Chef Boyardee’s) and have pop. Watching Ethan enjoying himself brought back those fond memories… which is what Feel Like A Kid is all about!


Ethan was completely invested in the pizza making process, including the clean up (he decided to start by licking the parmesan cheese bowl). He could barely contain himself as he watched the pizza cook and kept asking if it was almost done yet.


The beauty of making your own pizza is the ability to customize the entire, half, quarter… whatever part of the pizza for individual likings. As you can see, cheese is popular in our house. The other pizza is for the older population with cherry tomatoes, onions, spinach and Daddy’s portion has black beans.


Ethan told me all the hard work was worth it as he munched away at his cheese pizza. He was pleased as punch that I let him have the one piece that he poured the parmesan cheese on (it’s his favorite topping).
