Heart Shaped Pizza !

 

fun valentine's day food for kids

Making pizza is the perfect cooking activity for young kids, it doesn’t require you to be near a hot stove and they are practically a shoe in even for picky eaters. My son has recently started picking everything except meat and cheese off his pizza so I blend carrots and peppers into the sauce, mama always wins ! Also using tortillas makes it easy to shape the crust into a heart.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need a pan, oven , tortillas, pizza sauce, pepperoni , mozzarella , kitchen sheers and a heart shaped cookie cutter.
  2. Start by folding your tortilla in half and cutting it into a heart.
  3. Next using the cookie cutter make your heart shaped pepperoni, you could do this with a host of other toppings as well.
  4. Time to gather the kiddos! Mine was a little hungry after nap and decided to taste test the crust.
  5. Spread the sauce on
  6. Add the cheese, I am not sure if he is putting it on or taking it off in this picture. Shred much more than you need if your little chef is a fan of cheese!
  7. Add the pepperoni! My son insisted the hearts were eyes, so we made a mouth too.
  8. Bake- I baked ours at 400* for about 10 minutes, checking on it often.Do you do something special for your kids on Valentine’s Day? Tell us about it!

    Funny enough heart pizza’s were on the menu for today’s lunch! I am doing it with english muffins though. Maddie asked for heart cheese toast yesterday (grilled cheese) so it has been a week of heart foods!

    Dear Allie

    I’m presenting you with a blog gift in my blog. It’s in portuguese though… I can tell you more about it later, if you wish. It’s a gift-giving between blogs and I really wanted to recommend yours. It’s very entertaining and I learn a lot from your experiences.
    ;-) Thanks

    We did this for my girls in kindergarten. It was fabulous.
    This year we are giving stress balls made from balloons and flour with a tag, wishing you a stress free Valentine’s day! :) My girls are a tad bit older now. This was not mushy and almost ‘cool’. :) Happy day!

    Allie — we made Flubber today, pink of course for Valentine’s Day — for the older two to give away. But Alexander had SO much fun making it and playing with it. You guys would too! I just added that recipe on my blog as well… I spent the whole day making and packaging Valentine’s Day party stuff! I am so glad to be DONE with it! But… now the baking!!!
