For the longest time, dinner time would stress me out. My kids wanted attention, and I needed to cook … so I started letting my kids “help” me in the kitchen. Little odd jobs (sometimes “pretend” jobs…just to keep them busy) And I have to say, I have actually been enjoying it…… and we kept things REALLY simple. I shared this recipe this summer, but I am sharing it again because I think it is such a fun one to do together… it’s Homemade “Kid” Pizza.
For Starters … pizza sauce ….
…lots and lots of pizza sauce…then comes the cheese, ya gotta have cheese! (just ask little sissy …her pizza was all about the cheese) Next comes the ham. I have started doing something new the past few months because I have been finding hams marked down at our local Albertsons (due to close exp. dates) I paid only $7 and change for the last one! … so I bring them home, bake them, and then my hubby seals them into individual freezer packets so that we can take them out as we need them. This works great for breakfast because it is just the perfect size for Ham & Eggs for our family. (and it gives us a LOT of ham that lasts quite a while) And it is also perfect for when we make …. Pizza!
So…add the Ham and then next comes the pineapple…and we are ready for the oven…. 20 minutes later (we do a really thin crust, so it doesn’t take long) …. and we have finished pizzas ….
Yum!! …oh! And here is a little secret. Normally, I make my own dough (or use the bread maker to make it) …but for this project…I brought in a little helper, just to keep things simple … at 49cents a box… this stuff comes in really handy for fun projects like this!…and the end result…success!! (plus…they had made their own dinners!!) It was fun, relaxing…and yummy!!
