Comments

Made this last night for dinner - we used leftover slices of French bread as we didn't have any English muffins and wanted to use up the French bread before it expired. They were super tasty and we were able to use some of the extra tomatoes, basil and zucchini from our garden! We also used mozzarella string cheese (and a sprinkle of Parmesan) instead of shredded cheese - so easy and fun!

FH Pizza

Do you like Hawaiian pizza, with ham & pineapple?  Try CRANBERRIES instead of pineapple - they don't make your pizza soggy, but still give that dynamite sweet / sour YUM, plus are LOCAL and healthier! 

Thanks for the helpful post!

These are so fun for kids to make with me. It also lets them choose which fruits/ veggies/ or meats they want to put on their pizza!

This recipe is so fun to make with kids! They really enjoy being creative and choosing their own toppings.

It's also a great way to show kids how we can include fruits and veggies in our favorite foods.

I love these! Great healthy snack that kids really enjoy making!

These are great to make with kids!
