When I was young, I was a picky eater. Luckily, I grew out of it.
Now it's safe to say I will eat almost anything (except green peppers - no thanks).
But for many years, my parents struggled to get me to eat.
I would eat eggs, toast, my grandma's buttermilk scones and not much else.
Oh, but I would eat pizza. It had to be my mom's homemade pizza, though.
I didn't like a lot of takeaway pizzas. The crust, sauce and toppings had to be just right.
Now, my kids are similar - they like certain pizzas, but not all. Luckily, they like my homemade pizza.
They are not very adventurous - sticking with pepperoni or chorizo as their only toppings - but at least they'll eat it.
Tuesday 9 February is International Pizza Day, so it's a great excuse for making homemade pizza for yourself and your family.
It's really not difficult to make a nice pizza dough - you just need yeast, sugar or honey, water, flour, oil and salt.
And time - of which we have plenty.
Because my pizza dough only rises once before its baked, I don't knead the dough for very long. Just enough for it to come together.
Then, give it a nice, long rest for 1.5 hours and roll it out or press it directly into the pan.
When it comes to toppings, the sky is the limit. My favourite is a potato pizza with white sauce instead of tomato.
Parma ham or pancetta, thinly sliced potato and spinach with gooey mozzarella cheese - heaven (see the video below).
Another favourite combines Gubeen chorizo, caramelised onions and roasted red peppers.
Get creative with your toppings and get the kids involved in making their own personal pizzas - they'll have a lot of fun (it does get a bit messy but that's all part of it).
