To make the dough, put both flours into a large bowl, and add in the yeast and salt. Pour in 400ml warm water and the olive oil and mix with a wooden spoon until it turns soft
Knead it well. Cover with a tea towel and set aside. Leave the dough to rise if you have time but it’s not essential for a thin crust.
To make the sauce, blitz the tomatoes, garlic and thyme and a little seasoning, either in a food processor or using a hand blender.
Heat oven to 240C. Get the toppings ready in bowls so that your children can decorate their own.
If the dough has had time to rise, knead it a little in the bowl, then split into four balls. On a floured surface, roll out two of the balls into wide circles using a rolling pin. The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise in the oven. Lift these onto two floured baking sheets or pizza trays.
• Smooth sauce over bases with a spoon. Scatter with cheese, then start making the faces. Courgette rounds make great eyes or cheeks, halved courgette rounds can be used for ears and spiralized courgette for hair. Strips of pepper are good for eyebrows, mouths while olives and halved cherry tomatoes make great eyes or earrings. Sweetcorn can be used for teeth or freckles. Let their imagination go wild.
Cook for around 10-15 mins until crisp. You will want to swap the pizzas to a lower shelf halfway through the cooking time.
Repeat for the second two pizzas or freeze the balls of dough in two separate freezer bags, plus any remaining sauce in a sealed container.
