Pizza Party For One
Avie loves pizza. Like, really loves pizza. Her love affair started the day I dressed her up in an apron and put her on a stool next to me at the counter so she could help me make a pizza for dinner.
The toppings and directions were simple; smear the sauce, sprinkle on the chopped pepperoni, onion, roasted bell peppers and cheese. She stood back while I stuck it in the oven and then watched it bake eagerly through the lit window.
I realized then, that I could put anything on top of that sucker and as long as she participated- she would eat it. Bring on the veggies! But how often can one actually eat pizza?
Every day, it turns out... she begged for it constantly.
So I found a way to make her wishes come true: sandwich thins.
These round, little pieces of bread make the perfect toddler-sized personal pizzas. You can use it just like pizza dough (although it's not as sturdy, so watch your toppings and be sure to pre-bake it for added crispiness). Just smear the sauce and pile on the toppings as you normally would! And, the toppings can be anything, really. I even used the leftover Roasted Veggie Chili.
I'm logging this as a "Mommy win".
