Cooking with Kids: Pizza, Pizza, Pizza

Three kids

Recently I was contacted by a PR agency asking if I would try out new Pillsbury products. I decided to do it because i had a few ideas on quick and easy appetizers as the holidays get closer.

One of the products was their Pillsbury Pizza Crust and I ended up using this with my niece and nephews to make pizza. I love cooking with the kids. It is fun and exposes them to cooking. They love rolling out the dough, brushing on the sauce and sprinkle the toppings.

I did this on a Friday night after work so I used Trader Joe’s pizza sauce which made this super quick and easy. Luke, Chase and Olivia were my sous chefs.

When we were making this pizza I remembered making pizza with Luke when he was four years old. I was testing out recipes for a kids cooking class I was doing and he was my tester and model. You can see what a difference 4 years makes.
