For variations on English Muffin Pizzas, get kids involved and let them choose the toppings!.
Getting kids cooking not only helps build cooking skills, but also healthy eating habits. With a little extra planning, you can get the kids involved in different aspects of meal preparation.
Here are a few things that kids can do in the kitchen:
Wash fruits and vegetables.
Tear lettuce or cauliflower into bite sized pieces.
Pick off herbs from steams.
You can also let kids be creative and make their own culinary masterpieces! Like setting up a pizza bar with all the “fixins” and let them get to work!
We have lots of ideas for how to making cooking fun for kids!
For another healthier version of pizza, try spinach and pesto naan.
Also, give zucchini pizza bites a try.
