So If you’ve been following me you know by now that I have a pretty picky eater….it’s a pet peeve of mine. I’m a SAHM and I enjoy cooking so knowing my daughter won’t even try a quarter of what I make on a weekly visit, well to put it not so kindly. It frosts my arse. Now that we are settled into our new home I have no excuses to not try and get her to eat more of a variety of foods. I have to admit, I stopped trying new things because I just found myself getting irritated that she wouldn’t even try it let alone like it. I know reintroducing things is a must to a kid so I’m trying. I’m also trying to get her involved in the kitchen more too. Last week I featured a new Mommy blog for Featured Friday and Madison helped me make the Gluten Free Scones that we made. She LOVED helping and she even ate one. I also read an article recently (stay tuned I’ll be talking about it soon!) that said the more involved the child may be in making the dish, the more curious they may be in trying it. It’s a pride thing, so hopefully if she helps make it, she’ll at least try it. So last week we needed something quick to have (hey I’m starting off small here!) I had recently gotten a new tool from Pampered Chef so I thought this was the perfect thing to have Maddie help me with. She does love pizza, we’ve made a pizza before. This time I thought it would be fun to make individual pizza’s.
Use what your family likes for sauce, cheese and toppings. This post/recipe is more to just give you the idea of making individual pizza’s and getting your kiddo in the kitchen with you. If you don’t have a Pampered Chef Sandwich sealer that’s ok, use the edge of a large cup or bowl, use the size you want. These were so small I ate like 6 of them LOL!! I cut one into pieces and I also gave her one whole to give her a choice of what she liked, she actually chose the pieces……..go figure!!!
- Pizza Dough, I used Pillsbury whole wheat pizza dough
- Pizza sauce
- 4 Blend Cheese
- Basil, salt and pepper
- Turkey Pepperoni
- Roll out the pizza dough and use the sandwich sealer (or the rim of a cup or bowl) and cut out pieces. I kept rolling the dough until I had almost no dough left.
- Take a spoon and put a tablespoon or so of sauce on each pizza round.
- Sprinkle cheese on each pizza round.
- Place pepperoni (or any topping you like) on top.
- Bake according to the pizza dough instructions. Keep an eye on them, because they are smaller it may not take as long.
I packed them up and sent them to daycare as a lunch two different days!
