Pizzas are a huge staple in this house, we love ordering them for takeout, buying them fresh from the supermarket and making our own. Before Dex came into this world, we would make our own dough, spend hours proofing it, rolling it and baking it. We rarely have time to do this now, so we needed to find a quick way of making our favourite Italian food: baby led weaning pizza.
I like to use flatbreads and build up pizza toppings on them. We use chicken, chorizo, spinach, ham, cheese, jalapenos; anything that you would normally put on a pizza.

I put the pizzas under the grill for a couple of minutes until the cheese is bubbling away. I also like to make cheesy garlic breads the same way as well. (Of course if you are going to put meat on your pizza, I recommend cooking the meat first)
It’s much healthier to offer Dex one of these baby led weaning pizzas instead of a supermarket or takeaway one. I know exactly what has been put on it and they are not greasy in the slightest. What’s more, I don’t have to worry about salt content either.
Once the cheese is bubbling and the pizza is hot, I slice it into strips ready to offer to Dex once its cooled down. We offered this meal from 7 months onwards.
Dex loves all the different tastes and the flatbread remains soft enough for him as long as it isn’t left under the grill too long. We usually make these as a quick baby led weaning lunch or eat them alongside a small pasta dish as an evening meal.
Let me know if you try these baby led weaning pizza flatbreads. They’re so easy to make and it’s lot of fun building the toppings too!
