I saw this article about cooking with kids the other day and thought about cooking with my own kids. They definitely participate in the kitchen and enjoy cooking with their Poppa John, Lolo and Lola as well as me and my husband. The interest was true enough that my oldest daughter chose FACS (Family and Consumer Science) AKA home ec. She put together this cookbook of everything they had made in class, plus a few teacher favorites. This recipe seemed like a great spring break lunch activity, that might keep them entertained for a few minutes.
Canned biscuits or croissants (We used a small can Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits, which makes 5 pizzas)
Pizza Sauce (We used some of the homemade marinara sauce)
1 package Pepperoni slices
1 can sliced Olives
1/4 cup of frozen chopped spinach (I used this as the topping on my pizza, after I sauted it with chopped garlic)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Roll out individual biscuit dough to make individual pizza crust
3. Place on cookie sheet with parchment paper
4. Spoon on sauce and spread it out thin
5. Put toppings of your choice on (We had several variations – pepperoni and cheese; pepperoni, cheese and olives; and spinach and cheese)
6. Bake for 12 minutes until cheese is melted and golden brown
7. Remove from cookie sheet and enjoy
My daughters are my guest contributors today and will tell you what they thought of lunch.
Ana-My pizza turned out to be good and tasty. I said that it was the best lunch ever! I had 1/2 pizza first with cheese, pepperoni and olives and a whole pizza with pepperoni and cheese. Then I had another 1/2 pizza with pepperoni and cheese to make two whole pizzas.
Hi, my name is Cayla. My pizza was really great and tasty. I thought lunch was the awestomest lunch ever. My first pizza was pepperoni, cheese and olives. My second and third 1/2 pizzas were pepperoni and cheese and pepperoni,cheese and olives. I want to do it again and again.
