Cooking with Kids: Naan Personal Pizza

Mezzetta-Marinara-Homemade-Napa ValleyWinter 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 in Southern California. And by that I mean anything less than 60 degrees. I know, I know, we’re beyond spoiled over here, right? But we are having rain this week so these Naan pizzas are perfect to make and get the kiddos involved indoors.Cooking-With-Kids-Naan Flat-Bread Pizza

As 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-MarinaraAnd this is the Garlic Naan flat bread (traditional Indian flat bread or good ‘ole Greek pita bread) that we usually use. 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 Trader Joe’s carries one that is delicious, egg-free and also nut-free. Plus it’s only $1.99 for 4 pieces!

Here are a few of our favorite toppings. I Love using a muffin pan so that it makes it easier for the kids to pick and choose what they’d like to add to their own pizza. And in a sneaky kind of way, I specifically include colorful items such as spinach, Lacinato kale and plum tomatoes. My oldest actually likes adding tomatoes and even broccoli to her pizzas now. Total win.

      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. 😉

[#AD] Yes to pool parties, ice cream dates and the prettiest summer bouquets from @Teleflora 💐 I bet you didn’t know Teleflora's network of professional florists can create artistic arrangements like this one? I sure didn’t! This one reminds me of being on vacation in Hawaii. 🏝Swipe to see a close up & check out our stories to use our discount code on any gorgeous summer bouquet. 🤗👌
  • I thought it would be cute to get matching sunglasses & outfits to take a fun pic at this wall. I’ll blame the hot weather for this one. 😅 .
BUT, the truth is aren’t all the pics of our kids the best regardless if they’re looking at the camera, smiling or just being themselves? These are the real deal. Lexi running around not wanting to wear her sunglasses nor stand still. Mia not wanting to wear a dress & wanting to just climb things or take her own selfies with her iPod (aka phone). 🤣 Duh all kid things. Just a daily reminder to myself that I need to #letthembekids 🙈 .

  • Last Wednesday, I was invited to celebrate the launch of the new streamlined  @HonestBeauty products 
hosted by @jessicaalba at the Honest Headquarters. The event was nothing short of spectacular filled with delicious food, drinks and yummiest gluten-free vegan desserts from @yvonnesvegankitchen And, yes, Jessica Alba really is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. 😍 I asked her how she was able to balance family and business and guess what she said? She’s got the best help, her sis-in-law. 😘  She also mentioned that she created every single product for herself. How awesome is that? .

I was excited to try on some of the gorgeous  colors and new skin care products but most importantly to learn how gentle they are, how easy they are to put on & that they’re free of harmful additives. Find them all today @honest_beauty @Target @ultabeauty And check out my celebrity snap in my stories. ☺️ #CleanBeautyThatWorks #honestbeauty 📸 @lin_marty 💕

Fancy Nancy, is a new animated family comedy series centered on 6-year-old Nancy, who likes being fancy in everything from her advanced vocabulary to her creative attire. It’s geared towards kids age 2-7 and each episode contains funny heartfelt stories that highlight self-expression, being unique and family love.

And speaking of family love, it melts my heart to see our oldest reading Fancy Nancy books 📚 to her little sis. So you can just imagine the reaction these two had when they found out they were invited to a Fancy Nancy tea party inside Walt Disney Studios. And even got to see the first episode! 😱Beyond ecstatic and grateful. Merci it was all Magnifique! Can’t wait for you all to see it. Catch the premier tomorrow at 11a on Disney Junior. And stick around to see our stories of the event throughout the day. 💕#DisneyFancyNancy #DisneyJunior

And more so with kids. 😆 Amiright? Lately we’ve been going on day dates. And although extremely grateful for it, I’m now having #momguilt because our oldest is questioning why she can’t come with us and that we don’t play with her like we use to. 😩 The struggle of finding balance is real. How do you find balance? I feel like I’m being pulled different directions and I know I’m not alone on this. #momlifeyo #teammarriage 📸💕 @lilyro_

I try my best to make sure I’m #raisinggoodhumans but also independent & brave ones. Zip lining, archery, rock climbing, mining, cycling and hanging out with Santa🎅🏼& Mrs Claus 🤶🏻. Just some of the things our 6-year-old experienced yesterday. And although she’s scared of heights, she rock climbed on an outdoor 30-foot wall! Cried a little & attempted to go higher every time. She got more than half way up which is huge in her eyes. On the way out she said it was actually fun and wants to go on again to go higher. Yes my love! You are amazing. 🙌🏼 .
