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. 😉

  • A child can teach an adult three things 1️⃣ To be happy for no reason. 2️⃣ To always be busy with something. 3️⃣ And to know how to demand with all their might that which they desire. — Paulo Coelho 😆 Isn’t that the truth? When was the last time you were happy for no reason? Or even looked at something differently than you normally would? #foodforthought #disneyfamilia

You guys, today is our last day of “holiday vacation.” We had such a fun time creating family memories but now it’s time for Mia to go back to school — aka back to the routine. 🤪So today, I’m focusing on getting organized & making our crazy mornings less stressful. Send me all your tips please. ☺️😘 And a big thank to @verizon for always giving us the best connection to share our family memories with you. ☺️😘 #brandpartner #bettermatters #sundayvibes #sundayfunday #makingmemoriestogether
  • Making memories and breaking records over here. @disneyland 🏰 twice in one week.😂😅 Bummed the castle is blocked off so a pic with the astro orbiter will do. .
.
And my oldest no longer wants to match and she picked out this entire outfit. I have to admit though, I’m loving her style and taking notes. 📝 😊🤩 What are you guys up to this weekend? #disneyfamilia #makingmemories
  • #sponsored What if I told you that you can go shopping at Sam's Club, scan items with your smart phone as you put them into your basket and then push "Check out" and "Pay" right then and there?  Say bye-bye to the check out line with the Sam's Club Scan & Go App. I can't even tell you how genius this is and so needed for us mamas that always on-the-go with kids in tow. . .

Plus, we're currently loving all the fresh & organic produce. We made this quick healthy quinoa berry salad w/ homemade Cara Cara orange dressing using the items we grabbed in our last Scan & Go run. .

Ingredients: Organic Quinoa, Blueberry, Blackberry, Raspberries, Strawberries, Baby Spinach, Cara Cara Oranges, Raw Unfiltered Honey, Salt/Pepper, Organic Member's Mark EVO. *Pricing may vary by location @samsclub #momlife #samsclub
