My kids love helping out in the kitchen. With our busy life, whether is a rush to karate, an event at the school, or plain old household craziness, there is not always the opportunity to do so. This week we had NOTHING to do after school. The kids had been bugging me for weeks to make pizza at home. Since I can’t eat it, I tried to persuade them to help me make something else. Unfortunately, they had it stuck in their head that they wanted homemade pizzas. This week I was reading through a bunch of food blogs and I came across an amazing idea to make mini pizzas at home (I’m so mad that I didn’t bookmark it and now I can’t remember who’s blog it was! I’m SO SORRY!!) and it was the inspiration for this weeks Food Friday!
Mini Cut Out Pizzas
Primo Pizza Sauce
Cracker barrel cheese
Toppings (olives, peperoni, pineapple, green pepper, onions, bacon, etc) My kids are plain Janes, only cheese for us!
Cookie cutters (we used snowflakes and stars because it was so cold out!)
1. Preheat the oven to 350
2. Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface.
3. Cut out the pizza dough into different shapes.
4. Cook for 10 minutes until beginning to brown on edges.
5. Grade cheese
6. Add sauce, toppings and cheese to pre cooked pizza crusts
7. Cook for 10 more minutes until cheese begins to bubble and brown
8. Let cook 10 minutes and enjoy!
The kids enjoyed these so much that they asked me to make them the next night! Luckily, there were tons of leftover and they were pleasantly surprised to find them in their lunch the next day! DD1 loved how easy it was to feed herself with these mini pizzas!
