Cooking with the Kids: Flat Bread Pizza
As much as I dine out, people are often surprised when I tell them I cook regularly too. On most days I like to make quick easy meals, because with a full time job and two young children, it’s the only way to get a meal on the table. This weekend I decided to get my little ones in the kitchen with me. They love helping me cook and it can be fun activity for them. I wanted to keep it simple so we decided to make flat-breads. I also wanted to show off these cute apron and chef hats I found in my local Dollar Tree. Lets get cooking with the kids!
I used the mini naan bread because they are the perfect size for a personal pizza. I keep these on hand in my freezer. They taste great toasted. I’ve served them with hummus as a snack; or brushed with a little olive oil, and served with a pasta dish.
We topped our flat-breads with:
- store bought marinara sauce
- pineapple basil
- mozzarella cheese
Of course the possibilities are endless with flat-breads. Pick your favorite toppings and set them up and let your little sous chefs get creative.
We baked this pizzas for 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove pizzas from the oven and let cool before serving.
These flat breads make a great lunch, dinner, or even an appetizer. I served my flat bread with side salad.
Once I got over my kitchen getting a little messy I enjoyed cooking with my kids and the flat-breads were delicious. Here is a dessert recipe you can make with your kids if you want to keep the fun going.
