As you all know, at Fun Kids we love cooking tasty food – almost as much as we love eating it!
So we’re excited that we can actually cook to help raise money for Red Nose Day!
In case you don’t know, Red Nose Day – on 18th March – is a day like no other when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and improve countless lives in the process.
Visit rednoseday.com/monsterfun to find out more about the campaign
There’s loads of great ways you can help out from buying cool Red Nose Day goodies to doing fun things that help raise money.
One of our favourite ways so far has to be this: making our very own Monster Red Nose pizza that we can eat!
We’ve got all the instructions below, so why not get your parents to help you make some Monster Pizzas that you can sell to your friends for Red Nose Day?
Monster Red Nose Pizza Recipe
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 12 minutes
Makes: 4 mini pizzas (or 2 large pizzas)
You will need:
- 4 readymade mini pizza bases
- 1 jar of tomato sauce (Why not try Seriously Good Cherry Tomato & Balsamic sauce?)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 6 tomatoes, thinly sliced by an adult
- 2 yellow peppers, deseeded by an adult
- 2 x 125g mozzarella, sliced by an adult
- 250g grated cheddar
- 8 pitted black olives
How to make it:
- Get an adult to help you preheat the oven to 240°C (or 220°C for fan assisted oven) or Gas Mark 7
- Brush each pizza base with a little olive oil
- Spread each base with sliced tomato. Reserve 8 slices of mozzarella for the eyes, tear up the rest and scatter over the tomatoes. Cover with the grated cheddar
- Spread thinly with tomato sauce to cover the cheese
- Get an adult to slice off the top third of the pepper (about 3cm wide) and cut out triangles for the teeth. Then get them to slice the remaining pepper and place it across the centre for the mouth, then arrange the teeth
- Decorate each pizza with 2 slices of mozzarella and an olive on top to make the eyes
- Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and the edges are crisp
Now you should have a monster looking but tasty pizza!
If you enjoyed that why don’t you hunt in your kitchen for ingredients to make Honkus’ friends as well: Chucklechump and Captain Conk!
Don’t forget to show your support for Comic Relief by picking up a little monster (or three!) at Sainsbury’s, Oxfam or at www.rednoseday.com/shop.
Tip! Why don’t you get an adult to buy the Seriously Good cooking sauces developed by Gordon Ramsay for Comic Relief? At least 10p from every jar of Seriously Good contributes to the 2011 Red Nose Day total (and Gordon doesn’t get a penny!)
