Cooking with Kids: Naan Pizza

Mezzetta-Marinara-Homemade-Napa ValleyFall is just around the corner and I can’t wait to start using our oven on a daily basis. These Naan flat bread pizzas are seriously one of our favorite things to make more so when it starts to get chilly outside.

Cooking-With-Kids-Naan Flat-Bread PizzaAs you can see, Mia gets super excited when she gets to make her own pizza at home and I just love watching her get her ‘cook on’. This doesn’t mean I make the pizza dough from scratch, though. I know, lame right? But let’s face it, when you just want something quick to make and get the kiddos involved in the kitchen, the best way to do so is by using a recipe that requires few raw ingredients and most of all less time to make.Cooking-With-Kids-Naan Flat-Bread Pizza-Mezzetta-Marinara

We enjoy making these individual size pizzas using Garlic Naan flat bread (traditional Indian flat bread). Let me also point out that many Naan flat bread brands include eggs in their ingredients which is heartbreaking as Mia is severely allergic to eggs. However, good ‘ole Trader Joe’s carries one that is delicious, egg-free and also nut-free. Plus it’s only $1.99 for 4 pieces!

These truly are the best homemade Naan pizzas as the Naan garlic bread and Mezzetta homemade marinara sauce (100% hand-selected plum tomatoes, the freshest ingredients from local Napa Valley farmers, no added sugar or paste) gives them tons of flavor plus they’re custom-made so everyone can enjoy them with their favorite toppings.Cooking-With-Kids-Naan Flat-Bread Pizza-Mezzetta-Marinara

Cheers to cooking fun meals with the kiddos!

Abrazos,

Gladys

      Thanks Melissa! So easy to make and Mia loves adding her own toppings to her personal pizza. Another sneaky way of getting her to eat more veggies too. 😉
