Who here loves PIZZA?!

Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone that didn’t like pizza. It’s just SO good!! Since it’s one of those foods that everyone loves, we have it once a week in our family. Usually, we will go and pick up a $5 Hot N Ready from Little Caesars, but often times we will make homemade pizza or something similar. I wanted to try a new “pizza” recipe and spotted this recipe for Mini Margherita Pizzas from Kraft Foods. I love tomatoes and small, bite-sized foods so we gave it a try and it was a hit with the whole family. Not all the kids like tomatoes, so we were sure to give them the mini pizzas that only had a few on them. What I loved most is that the kids loved making them too. They had a blast using the circle cookie cutter to cut circle dough pieces. Now, I admit that you can just keep the pizza whole and not make them mini, but we liked the change of pace and I was happy to try something new. Sometimes things just get boring and the kids seem to like to change things up once in a while.

For a simple lunch or dinner idea (or even as an appetizer at a party), I think you’ll enjoy these Mini Margherita Pizzas. Here’s the recipe:

I think I’ll add some fresh Mozzarella to these next time I make them and even some Balsamic Vinaigrette for a Caprese version!
