I know life can be really chaotic and busy, with after school activities, homework, dinner,bath and bedtime etc… but sometimes it’s nice to take a time out and do something special with your kids for dinner. All you need is the dough, jar of sauce, and shredded cheese. Easy and it doesn’t cost a lot! 💰❎
For us, we call it pizza night. 🍕We’ve tried a few different ways: we’ve bought the ingredients all from the market or we’ve ordered all the ingredients from a pizza place.
We’ve tried putting the pizza on cookie trays, we’ve tried putting the pizza into disposable circle tins, we’ve tried with and without flour/cornstarch so it doesn’t stick to our hands.We’ve tried with friends and we’ve done it just as a family. We’ve tried different shapes and different thicknesses.
Recently we’ve tried making mini pizzas in cupcake/mini cake pans bagel pans. Regardless of the ways we tried, the outcome is always the same, the kids HAVE A BLAST! It’s really easy and fun to do, the clean up isn’t terrible and the kids enjoy eating it, and it tastes GOOD👍🏽.
In fact I would say the cleanup is no more, or even less then cooking an actual meal (something I do not know much about lol 😳) This is one of those things in life that a little goes a loooooong way and it also becomes a top memory. I get major mommy points and “ohhhh you’re the best mom ever” when I surprise the kids and say its a pizza night. For whatever reason they think it is the coolest thing ever and it’s nice to get some recognition from them…
Last week Hailey tried a new style. Making pizza bagels. We had a lot of fun trying out the new shape, and she thought she was the slickest pizza maker out there!
Next time you see the ingredients in the market, or wherever you are give it a try! I promise you your kids will thank you! 😘👍🏽
