Now, on to the PIZZA PARTY!
Recently my oldest son hosted his first sleepover! His cousin came over last weekend for 24 hours of playing, running, eating and sleeping. It was a huge success, the boys both had so much fun and our son was pretty exhausted by Sunday evening!
I wanted their Saturday night/sleepover dinner to be a fun time, after all, this was my son's first hosting gig and I wanted it to be extra special. So I figured, "Hey, what kid doesn't like pizza?" (Actually I must admit, my brother and I both didn't like pizza when we were kids, but we soon wised up!) Anyways, I decided that we were going to have a "MAKE YOUR OWN MINI PIZZA NIGHT" for supper, and it was a huge hit! Here is what we did:
Bakestone Brothers Multigrain Thin Bun (found at Costco)
Pizza Sauce (in the squeeze bottle = more fun!)
Deli Meats (pack from Costco - Hot Capicolli, Pepper Salami and Hot Salami)
Split a thin bun to make two pizza "crusts". Squeeze on some pizza sauce, spread with a spoon. Add your toppings, as many as you'd like. Top with cheese. Place mini pizzas onto a large cookie sheet and bake in the oven for approximately 7 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
As my nephew would say, they were "deeelicious" and both boys gave the pizzas "thumbs up". My husband and I both really enjoyed them too. So easy to put together, lots of fresh vegetables, even a little fruit! Lots of fun colour, and the best thing, the kids had FUN!
The mini pizzas were so popular that my boys asked that we have them for dinner the next night. So we did. I happened to have a mango on the counter which we added to our list of toppings, and both my husband and my son loved that addition!
