Pizza face

India was very excited when she got her Highlights High Five magazine a few months back and saw a recipe for “pizza faces”. We have had it a couple of times, and it is an easy and fun meal for toddlers to help out with.  Here is our version:

  • English muffins (1 per kid, and 1-2 for adults depending on hunger level) 
  • Red pepper 
  • Broccoli 
  • Sliced olives 
  • Spaghetti sauce (jarred or homemade) 
  • Cheese (we use what we have on hand) 

Adult work 
1. Preheat the oven to 350
2. Cut pepper into thin slices
3. Separate broccoli into little pieces
4. Split English muffins and place on a baking pan
5. Spread sauce over entire muffin (kids could do this, but it’s a little messy for India in my opinion)

Kid work 
1. Put cheese on muffin
2. Put eyes (olives) on
3. Put nose (broccoli) on
4. Put mouth (red pepper) on
5. Have an adult put them in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts
6. Enjoy!

I am trying to come up with how I could do this with fruits as more of a morning meal but haven't come up with all the ingredients yet.  Anyone have any ideas?  Comment below if you do.

You could use a bagel with cream cheese, blueberry eyes, a peach smile and a strawberry nose?

I like that Tracy. I was thinking grapes for the eyes, but I think blueberries might be better.
