Praise For…

“Charity Mathews is the kid cook whisperer, and this time she's coaxing them into the kitchen with the mother of all kid meals—pizza! And I'm not just talking cheese and pepperoni. Don't be surprised to find your little pizza chefs pulling out unique pies like Savory Apple with White Cheddar or Chicken Tikka Masala Deep Dish along with the old reliables. The scratch-made crust recipes, tasty topping ideas, and easy-to-follow instruction will have the whole family—whether you're a kid cook or just a pizza-loving kid at heart—signing up for pizza school and all its delicious homework.”—Andrea Sterling, mom of two kiddo cooks and eater of all the pizzas

“I got this for my 9 year old grandson who loves to cook and he loves it. There are lots of safety tips and baking pointers that he found interesting and informative and easy to understand. There are lots of ideas for toppings that I had never thought of and we have loved experimenting. I am particularly fond of the breakfast one. This is a great book to get kids in the kitchen and cooking. It was fun to spend time with my grandson and the results were quite tasty.”—Susan J.

“I fully believe that getting kids into the kitchen early is important for a number of reasons: learning to cook is a vital life skill, it helps them learn to follow directions, and it provides an (almost) immediate result for their work. Pizza is great start as, despite what some might think, it's actually a pretty healthy meal option. It's also fun to make! The skills taught in this book can be used for other types of cooking and the recipes are simple, yet delicious. It's a great foundational cookbook too.”—P. Woodland
