Batley Mr Ts Restaurant is giving school children some of the action with a free pizza-making session


Fourth year pupils at Warwick Road School looked at ‘seasonal foods’ as part of their class food tech topic.

During an initial conversation between Professor Ziyaad Rawat and his colleagues, they thought it would be a good idea to organize a trip for the children so that they could make their own pizzas and learn about the ingredients used.

Shortly after this conversation, Mr Rawat contacted the owner of the restaurant in Bradford Road, Tauseef Malik, who kindly offered to invite the 47 pupils to the establishment on November 8 – completely free of charge.

The school trip included a lecture on food hygiene, a pizza-making session and an inspirational talk by Mr. Malik, before the children feasted on the pizzas they had made.

Mr. Malik also offered a free meal to the seven teachers present.

Mr Rawat said: “It was great sitting down with the kids, talking about their pizzas and discussing how they tasted – they loved it.

“When we all finished eating, he also gave everyone free ice cream, which wasn’t even part of the session. The kids were so happy they clapped.

The kids made pizza while visiting Batley’s restaurant.

“The main thing was that the kids learned a lot about pizza during this experience.

“Not many people will be able to say that they made their own pizza in a real restaurant, it’s a memory that will stay with them forever.

“A huge thank you to Mr Malik and all the staff for supporting the children in making their pizzas.

“I cannot praise them enough for what they have done for these children.

Mr. Malik said: “It was a great experience working with the kids and getting them to create their own pizzas. I always like to involve the community here at Mr Ts.

“Talking to children about business, my experiences growing up, establishing Mr Ts and sharing my ideas with them have been very rewarding.”
