Today we read a wonderful book about pizza which lead to us eating pizza. It was delicious.
Piggy backing on the library trip we took earlier this week. I stumbled onto a book series titled “So You Want To Grow A…” by Bridget Heos. My toddler and I decided to take the So You Want To Grow A Pizza Book home to read. It was a delightful book with step by step instructions on how to grow a pizza or really grow the ingredients to make a pizza. It was like we were reading a cookbook which I guess you kind of are.
While reading the book, I grew an appreciation for pizza because I learned how long it takes to grow all the ingredients needed to make a pizza. Let’s just say if I start a garden today, I’d be lucky to eat a pizza by next year 2020. The last page includes a recipe for pizza sauce which is a nice little bonus.
Easy Pizza Recipe For Kids
The book lead to a delicious pizza dinner which my kids made. They placed pita bread on a cook sheet then brushed both sides with olive oil. I toasted the pita bread in the oven for 1-2 minutes on both sides. I recommend toasting the pitas; otherwise, they get a little soggy.
After removing the pita bread from the oven, my kiddos spread a thin layer of sauce onto the bread as evenly as they can. It won’t hurt to be uneven. It just cooks evenly.
Once the sauce is spread out, let them sprinkle the cheese and add the topping. My girls like cheese pizza like most kids. While my husband and I tried a Denver omelet inspired toppings with green pepper, ham and onions.
Bake for 5-7 minute or until cheese is melted at 425 degrees. Dinner is served… Yummy.
- 2 cups of cheese; shredded cheddar or mozzarella

Easy dinner that the kids enjoyed making and eating. Now who cleans up?
