Pizza is a staple in our household, I am always wanting new ideas and ways to make it. Also, I want to find any and every way I can to include our kids in every day tasks. I believe children learn better through doing activities than watching. Our son loves to help with whatever we are doing, so it was not hard to have him help me fill these up and get them ready. The hard part was getting them to wait for the oven to give back their food! Haha.

I have tried a few different creative recipes that have been a total bust, but these are so simple and fast that even if you do mess it up… well no one will ever know the difference!
