What is your favorite kind of pizza? Do you know how to make healthy pizza? We adore pizza at our house, and my girls love when they get to make their own and choose their own toppings. Lots of people have asked for my recipe and how we do this, so back in July I wrote a guest post for the lovely people at Mom It Forward showing you how we do it and giving you a delicious pizza crust recipe. Go check that recipe out here.
But wait, there’s more! You get a bonus tip today! With the kids just starting back to school, healthy school lunch ideas have been on my mind. Today for lunch my daughter took a make-your-own pizza kit. Here’s how we did it: The last time we made pizza for dinner, I rolled out a few extra crusts, brushed them with olive oil, and then baked until just barely turning golden on top. After they cooled, I cut them in wedges and threw them in the freezer. All leftover pizza sauce went into ice cube trays, and then the sauce cubes into a zipper bag in the freezer. Last night we grabbed a handful of pizza crust wedges and 2-3 sauce cubes, and put them in the fridge to defrost. We also grated a little cheese and had that ready to go, with some carrots, cucumber, and pineapple to go on the side. Today at lunch she just used a spoon to scoop a little pizza sauce onto a crust wedge, sprinkle a little cheese, and voila! Pizza! It’s cold, but she doesn’t seem to mind, and said several times how excited she was to eat lunch today, “Because it’s going to be so mmmmmm, mmmmmm, delicious!”
