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. 😉

  • I'm that mom that procrastinates sending out holiday cards. Truth be told, one year I actually sent them out NYE. But guess what? This year I'm so on top of it and just mailed these cuties out.

  • FAO Schwarz makes its return to NYC. And guess what??!We were invited to check it all out this past Wednesday! Right before it opened its doors to the public. 😱 You guys, this store is seriously beyond magical. 🌈 And according to the girls, they had the best day ever! 🤩Grocery shopping, getting their hair and nails painted and even got to dance on the biggest walk-on piano keyboard with their daddy. .

Check out all the fun & what the store looks like on our stories. 🤩 A big thank you to @melissaanddougtoys @faoschwarz for hosting us.💕 #faoschwarz #newyorkcity #rockefellercenter #ReturnToWonder

  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️
.

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .

Be sure to peep our stories throughout our stay this week because we’re also going to be attending a preview of the much anticipated NEW @faoschwarz store opening in Rockefeller Plaza!!! And check back for a full recap on the blog when we return to CA. There’s going to be an amazing GIVEAWAY that will surely help jumpstart your holiday shopping, too! #takebackchildhood
  • Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? Where did the time go? We're definitely excited over here and are getting a head start. Starting with our traditional holiday ‪pj's‬. You all know we love matching so when the girls unboxed these adorable Emoji mommy+me Holiday ‪pj's‬ from @childrensplace they were so excited and couldn't wait to put them on. And truthfully, I couldn't either. Plus, they're ultra soft and cozy too!

  • The weather is finally starting to cool down in Southern California. Actually, let me rephrase that. The weather is finally cooling down in the evenings and early mornings around here. 🤣
.

So that means it’s all about cozy sweaters & all the hot coffee. ☕️ Trust me when I say this cute color block sweater has been on repeat. Check out our latest post on how I found it. It’s so inexpensive. 😉👏 And do you have anything currently on repeat too? 😁#sweaterweather 📸 @lilyro_
