Kosher pizza is a relatively new menu offering in some Kosher restaurants. There are very few actual Kosher pizza restaurants, however. One demographic in particular is especially smitten with Kosher pizza—which isn’t at all traditional with pepperoni or sausage on top. Kids seem to love it just the same, though. Here are a few reasons why.
- Provided the flour that goes into the crust and the mozzarella are Kosher, and the kitchen in which the pizza is prepared and baked keeps Kosher, then a basic Kosher cheese pizza isn’t hard to come by. Even though the Kosher cheese tastes a bit different than non-Kosher does (non-Kosher cheese contains an enzyme from a cow’s stomach lining, but this isn’t allowed in Kosher cheese) Kosher Jews raise their kids eating it, and non-Jewish children aren’t usually as set in their ways as adults, so they might not notice the difference.
- Kids are likely to listen to the story of Kosher pizza, and learn about what it means to eat Kosher. This will help them understand that it’s okay to be different and that even in the neighborhood where they live, there are people of other cultures and religions who have unique ways of eating.
- Kids love learning to cook. Most of them love knowing how to make some of the meals their families enjoy, and pizza is an easy way for them to start. Mom or Dad can take care of the crust and sauce, and let the kids sprinkle on the cheese and any chosen Kosher toppings.
Kids make up a large portion of the customers who order Kosher pizza. Have your kids tried one yet?
