We know you’re so busy that the thought of making stuff from the fridge look so fabulous it’s irresistible isn’t really a consideration. But why not make these with the kids, and the 10 minutes it takes to prep will be 10 minutes not spent arguing and persuading them to eat.


1 ball Italian Centre Shop fresh made pizza dough. (Or frozen & defrosted)

1 jar favourite pizza sauce.

Honey roasted ham.

Grated mozzarella cheese.

Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface, cover with tomato sauce, ham and grated mozzarella. Roll up into a sausage shape, cut into 1 ½ inch slices. Bake in a hot oven at 375° F for ten minutes.


1 ball Italian Centre Shop fresh made pizza dough.

1 packet gluten free Natural Selections chicken sausages, cut in half.

Roll out the pizza dough as above, cut into 1 ½ inch strips. Wrap around the sausages, toothpick in place. Bake in a hot oven at 375 ° F for five minutes. Done.


Kids love assembling their own food. Cut their favourite meat and cheese into cubes and skewer on a stick, adding vitamin packed tomatoes and grapes. Top with a bocconcini mozzarella ball. Make a bouquet with the skewers on an apple.


Slice the kid’s favourite colourful fresh veggies into strips – carrots, cucumber, peppers are great. Place five strips onto two slices of ham, we used Tuscan Style Cotto, with two strips of mild cheese like Provolone. Roll up and add a mozzarella bocconcini and slice of olive for each eye.
