Home-Ade Pizza- Well Mostly

OK. So I do use a pizza dough from the dairy section. Who's watching anyway? Seriously, as a single mother, this recipe has saved me so many times. My kids and I have been having fun with this since they were just five years old. It is so fun to have the kids be a part of the creation. I am a foodie and work at a human service that teaches youth to cook in our charming cafe. I know how important it is to get into the kitchen as a family and just have fun. I bought aprons at a craft store with design pens. Each child makes their own apron.


Make your own crust or buy one at the dairy section- Don't feel Guilty
Can Tomato Sauce
Italian Spice
Diced Tomato's (Optional) - Some kids love it and some just don't.
Lots of shredded Mozzarella Cheese mixed with cheddar

I give each child a spatula
Each has a bowl with sauce, a bowl with cheese, and a bowl with pepperoni- Fairness is Key

Yesiree, they spread the sauce over the crust
They sprinkle the cheese
They add Pepperoni and any other fixing they love

Bake at 425 for 12 Minutes

Vwala, you have your self a great family/or friend connection project that is so much fun and tasty too.


  1. What a great idea!! I love meals where kids can get involved--it gives them such an awareness of what they are eating--and it is fun too. We do this with salad night and taco night as well!! GREAT TASTY TUESDAY!! Cheers, Jenn.

  2. Flat bread is perfect for children to build their pizza. Just pop into the microwave until cheese is melted. Also great for a quick, yummy snack!

    1. You are going to laugh at how dumb I am... I didn't know they sold pizza dough in the dairy section. So, when we went for groceries this week, I bought some of that pizza dough and the French bread dough. I didn't know about that either... hahaha

    2. Funny Darlene. Thanks again for telling me about my comments.

  3. Love this. I've done this with my grands using the dairy biscuits on a roll...they make their own two or three or five pizzas. Great!

    This is great! (love the word "home-ade") I buy the individual Boboli crusts for birthday parties and every guest designs and creates their own pizza. The kids love it!

  5. Another idea on the pizza crust, to make little individual ones, you can put all your toppings on a flour tortilla. It makes a great, thin crust! :) And they are generally the perfect size for one person (you can even get the extra large ones for someone with a bigger appetite).

  6. Pizza is such a great way for kids to get involved. Great idea.
