Boys working with whole wheat dough

Last week in our Nutrition and Literacy Program we made farm pizzas. The participants started with whole wheat berries, milled the flour and made the dough. While the dough was rising the groups harvested and processed herbs, summer squash and garlic for the toppings.  In true farm fashion, we baked several of the pies on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet. After a few minutes we were enjoying some of the best pizza I’ve ever had. Although some of the kids did notice a difference in the taste from fast food pizza that they are used to and missed the sugar. But it’s a start!

Next week… fresh fruit sorbets!
