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 Let’s not stress about the kiddos wetting the bed mamá. The truth is, it’s not anyone’s fault so please don’t blame yourself nor the kids. Turns out even kids that are potty trained also need help at night.

We’re loving that @GoodNites has been keeping Lexi dry at night which in turn helps start our mornings off right. Plus, Lexi’s loving that they’re comfy and have princess Ariel and Elena on them. For more information, visit  GoodNites.com #LessWorryMoreChildhood

Don’t mind me, I’m just raising strong willed ladies over here. I had matching outfits for them to wear to the 2019 opening weekend of @kennysstrawberryfarm 🍓but they had other plans. 🤣 Oh well. Love that they each picked out their own outfits and got ready without me asking them to a thousand times. Total win over here. 🥳

And if you’re in Southern CA, and are looking for something fun to do with the littles, go pick some strawberries. This weather is just perfect for it. ❤️🍓😘 #happystpatricksday #raisingladies
