9/17: MMMMMM . . . Monday

I am excited to share with you a "family" recipe that we love to make in our Mama Jo home!
It is nothing fancy, but it is a recipe that a child can make themselves, and my kids LOVE making dinner.

Homemade Pizza

  • Store Bought Pizza Dough (I buy generic)
  • 1 8 ounce Can of Tomato Sauce 
  • Parmesan Cheese (we use the kind you shake on-- you can use shredded Mozarella as well)
  • 1 package of pepperonis
  • 1 bell pepper (or other vegetables your child may eat)
Have your child:
  • Preheat over to 450 degrees
  • Spread the dough on to a pizza pan
  • Pour the tomato sauce on the dough and spread around with a spoon
  • Sprinkle cheese on to the pizza
  • Place Pepperonis on to the pizza
  • Place sliced (a grown up should slice them) vegetables on top
  • Adult should place the pizza in the over, and a timer should be set for 15 minutes
  • The time cooking will vary based on your oven, but it should be between 15-20 minutes

Cut the pizza, and enjoy the creation your little one has made!


  1. That looks so yummy! It looks like I have a plan for dinner tomorrow night! Thanks!

  2. That looks great! She looks like shes having fun making it!

    1. She has a blast on the nights she gets to make dinner. Sometimes the meals are "questionable," but she loves to cook!

  3. I would love to make this but with my homemade pizza dough

    1. It would be better with home made dough. I will have to find a good recipe, but I try to make their night all about them making dinner.
