First, I make the pizza dough. (I double this for our family of nine.)
Here's the fun part!
I pinch off a hunk for each child and they pat it out on greased trays.
Then I set out these toppings in bowls for them to choose from:
marinara sauce* (You can used canned spaghetti sauce.)
chopped bell peppers
Each child tops his own pizza. They have fun making smiley faces or flowers with the toppings. Some even do a stuffed crust. They absolutely love this!
Bake at 425 for 15 - 20 minutes until golden and bubbly.
*5 Minute Marinara Sauce
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
salt and pepper
Heat oil and garlic. When garlic starts to sizzle, add herbs and crushed pepper. Stir in rest of ingredients. Bring to a bubble, reduce heat, and simmer.
