Elsie says:

"I started cooking when I was five or six. The first thing I learnt to make was a cheese chunky (an egg and cheese flatbread). I love coming up with my own recipes and I especially love pizza. I add loads of veggies to mine because it's tasty and it makes my mum happy. If the world was made of pizza it would be fantastic!"

Elsie's mini interview

What are your three favourite foods?

I’ve got three favourite dinners. The first one is salmon, mashed potato and broccoli. I also like pasta. I don’t like any other pizza, just my pizza!

What's your favourite part of making your pizza?

I got showed today (on the Good Living photoshoot) how to do this really cool pizza toss where you spin it and then you throw it up in the air. I wasn’t good at doing that though.

Do you watch any food shows on TV?

I like watching baking shows. I watch Bake Off, Bake Off the Professionals, Junior Bake Off and Nailed It! Me and my mum love watching that. They always have something really good to copy and then it turns out terrible.

Do you follow recipes?

I like coming up with my own recipes rather than following a recipe book. I’m writing my own cookbook of recipes.
