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

    Oh my goodness, this is so fun! My nephews are coming to stay with me in February & I need to remember this for them. I am sharing this for all the Back To School parents out there. Great job little one!
    Love, Lisa

    OMG what a great idea. Totally making these with my kids! 🙂 thanks!

      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. 😉

  • True story, I had 3 jobs while in college. One of them was a Lancôme consultant. ☺️And I'm still a huge fan 17 years later. Ok, I just might have given away my age with that one. 🙈😆

Currently loving their entire new Visionnaire line (including the Crescendo Peel) as well as their Monsieur Big mascara, Bienfait UV facial sunscreen, Bi-facil eye makeup remover and the prettiest red matte shaker lippie. 💋💄Do you have any Lancôme favorites? .

  • Trying to take photos and video of these kiddos with my phone has caused quite a few of my screens to break. I'm sure many of you might be on the same boat. But we found a pretty neat phone case that has helped prevent drops especially at the park when I'm running around chasing two. 😆😅

  • [ad] I'm all about finding new ways to live a healthier lifestyle. Because in all honesty, the struggle. 🙈So today I'm talking about something I started to incorporate into my morning routine that's been a real game changer. Probiotics. .

Did you know probiotics are “good” bacteria that naturally exist in cultured or fermented foods (like yogurt) and offer benefits to your digestive system? They crowd out unwanted organisms and allow more of the “good” bacteria. But unlike most single strain probiotics, Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotics delivers the “good” bacteria your body needs in both the small and large intestines – giving you more comprehensive digestive coverage. Plus, they deliver more digestive tract coverage than most other single strain products. And if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the Nature Made Advanced Dual Action probiotics, just send it back for a full refund. P.S. We found ours @Walmart ;)
