CHILDREN from Westacre Middle School in Droitwich were trying on toppings, by making pizzas in the lead up to the Droitwich Food Festival.

140 pupils from year five, designed and made their own pizzas, concentrating on the nutritional value of the toppings, as well as their appearance and taste.

Each class selected its best three pizzas, and they were judged by the food festival organiser Patrick Davis, who is an experienced food taster.

He said: ““I thought it was fabulous. The kids were really enthusiastic and really creative with different flavours to go in pizzas. They really worked hard and they got really into it. There was even a pizza made to look like a face.

“To do something like this with kids using food, and them wanting to eat it as well is wonderful.”

The event was organised by head of year five Mrs Felicity Crooks, and also saw youngsters designing boxes to go with their pizzas.

The overall winners across the year will now be treated to a pizza making demonstration by a local chef.

Droitwich food and Drink Festival is taking place this Saturday, June 21 in the town centre.
