Otherwise, it's normally a quick throw something together at the last minute act. Over the past few weeks I've taken a big step and enlisted a dinner helper. Yeah, helper, I'm an optimist.
Okay, so maybe it's more work than help, but we've had so much fun! Kate loves helping. It's a great way to spend time in the kitchen together, while still getting something accomplished. Tonight we made pizza. It was so easy. All you need is the following:
Pre-made whole wheat pizza crust, pizza sauce (we love Mid's), cheese (we used a blend of mozzarella, asiago, and romano, but I'm a cheese snob), and your toppings (we used fresh chopped basil and two large sliced tomatoes). Oh, I'm also a big toppings on top of the cheese person, but to each their own.
Easy peasy. Put it in the oven, I'm a guesstimator so about 375 degrees in the convection for about 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. It was super quick, healthy for a pizza, and best of all, Kate couldn't wait to eat the "Pizza I made!"
