What’s cooking today?


Cooking is a favorite class and elective at Beaver Summer Camp. Every day campers learn a new recipe, basic baking techniques, and kitchen safety. To top it all off, the campers get to either eat their yummy creations after they make them or bring them home for later.

During one cooking class, campers learned how to make English Muffin Pizzas. This recipe is an easier way to make a classic dish.

Here are ingredients needed:

  • 1 English Muffin
  • A sauce of your choice
  • Cheese
  • Any desired pizza toppings

How to make a English Muffin Pizza:

  • Step one: Carefully break the muffin in half.
  • Step two: Top with sauce
  • Step three: Top with cheese
  • Step four: Top with pepperoni or an ingredient of your choice
  • Step five: Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Step six: Take the pizza out of the oven and let it cool

This recipe was a favorite, because each camper could decide how much of each ingredient they wanted on their pizza. For example, one camper added a lot of cheese to his pizza because he loves cheese, while two other campers did not add any pepperoni to their pizzas because they don’t like pepperoni.
