Mini cheese pizzas

Ready in mere minutes; little helpers welcomed!

There are so many fun ways to make kid-sized pizzas. This super easy recipe and Pizza Bowls are some of our recent family favorites. The pizzas are ready in mere minutes and they get instantly devoured by the three-year-old who lives in our house. There is room for much creativity, as well. Vegetables could be finely chopped and added to the sauce, or added as toppings. Meat could be added if you happen to have a child who will eat meat. I do not.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Divide a 7.5-oz. tube of refrigerated crescent dough into four rectangles and place onto a lightly greased baking sheet.

Press the perforated diagonal seam together on each rectangle with your finger to ensure the sauce will not seep through.

If a toddler is assisting, one of your rectangles might end up looking like this:

In a small bowl, combine:

1 8-oz. jar tomato sauce

2 teaspoons dried minced onion

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Turn the edges of the dough up on each rectangle to create crusts and divide sauce among them.

Divide 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese between the four pizzas. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
