Activity #4: “Cheesy Pizza Bombs”

The purpose of this activity is to have the students get an opportunity to make and taste “Cheesy Pizza Bombs”.  This recipe is courtesy of Lois Brandt (author). It can be also be found on her website page for Maddi’s Fridge (https://www.loisbrandt.com/cheesy-pizza-bombs).

Materials:

Ingredients to make 8 “3 inch” cheesy pizza bombs from 1 log.  You will need to make 3 logs for a class of 22 students so the ingredients will need to be tripled:

  • One pound pizza dough, preferably homemade
  • Unbleached all-purpose flour, for work surface
  • 4 – 6 Tablespoons tomato sauce
  • dash of dried oregano
  • dash of dried parsley
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Favorite pizza toppings (olives, pepperoni, bell pepper, etc.)

Equipment:

  • Rolling pin
  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cups
  • A rimmed baking sheet greased with olive oil or lined with parchment paper

Teacher Preparation:

  • Purchase the ingredients and gather the equipment
  • Preheat the oven to 425F.

 

Step by Step:

Step One: On a lightly floured work surface, roll dough out to a 10-by-6-inch rectangle.

Step Two: Spread the tomato sauce on top. Sprinkle dried oregano and parsley to taste. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Add your other favorite pizza toppings. Starting at one of the long sides, roll the dough up into one big super-cheesy pizza log, pinching it closed where the second long side meets the log.

Step Three: Cut the log into eight pieces. Place the pieces cut-side down on a well-greased rimmed baking sheet. Leave at least an inch spacing between the pieces. Bake until the cheese is bubbling, 10 to 12 minutes.  Cool and share!

 

End Product:

Students gets to enjoy tasty cheesy pizza bombs.
