Shakey's Pizza Making Workshop

Last month, I had a great time bonding with my eldest daughter. I enlisted her and registered her to Shakey's Pizza Making Workshop ( Shakey's Rizal Avenue, PPC Branch).

Too bad, it was already the last batch for the year and that they already had 4 batches prior. 

The registration fee was just Php100.00. But the worth of the workshop was more than that.  Participants will create a solo pan pizza with three flavors to choose - chicken bbq, Hawaiian and pepperoni. My daughter loves Hawaiian flavor, so I chose that one for her.



The certificates, given after the workshop.



Kids will also learn how to make friends and communicate with fellow participants for they offer fun games before the actual pizza making starts.

Of course, all the kids had fun playing. They've won some prizes plus a free ICE CREAM!!


After the fun-filled games, a short briefing and little introduction was made by the host/instructor.
They they started the workshop by teaching what to do with the ready-made pizza dough.

They actually showed the step by step process in making pizza. They also explained that it is no longer necessary to wear gloves while prepping the dough, because the bacteria will also be killed when cooking the pizza at the convection oven.

There were crews assisting participants too. Showing the kids how to properly knead the dough. Assisted the participants in putting oil on the screen,etc.

After doing all the process properly, now it's waiting time. It's just a couple of minutes before the pizza was served. 

My daughter showing off the pizza she just made. Now, it's time for her to eat this one. :) Served with a glass of iced tea and their free ice cream!


Good thing I brought her here, she had fun and wanted to repeat this one. I just hope they'll have more workshops like this in the future.

  7. The youngest that time was 4 (I think). But there was no age limit mentioned when I registered my kid. I think as long as your daughter can follow instruction and loves "cooking", she's qualified! :)
