I’ve been lucky to have two kids who are relatively good eaters, and who are open to new foods and flavors.
And I love to experiment with new recipes, meal ideas and more! But that doesn’t mean I don’t fall into ruts like everyone else.
For the most part, I like feeding my kids vegetables in their original form, so that they can learn to taste and appreciate how delicious they can be. That’s sometimes easier said than done, especially now that the kids are older and need more traditional entrees instead of just separate veggies, beans, fruits and proteins on a plate.
This recipe packs some extra veggie power, tastes delicious and comes in a fun pizza form!
You guys, these are awesome. It’s not a novel concept, but without any begging, pleading or bribing, these pizza bites will have your kids devouring…
I used the same recipe and method I showed you here: Cauliflower Pizza Crust
However, I instead molded them into bite-sized pieces on parchment paper, then baked them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Once out of the oven, I topped them. Now I used shredded mozzarella, pepperoni and finely diced red pepper because I know Hailey likes it. If your child doesn’t even want to SEE a vegetable, stick with cheese. They’ll never know.
I broiled the pizza bites for about 4 minutes, then they were ready to serve!
These 18 pizza bites would be great for multiple children or even a party, but if you can’t eat them all at once, wait until they cool completely, then freeze them on a baking sheet. After they are frozen, you can transfer them to a bag.
When ready to eat, bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until heated throughout. The result will be best if you can reheat them on a pizza stone to firm up the bottom. However, they still taste just fine either way.
I hope your kids love them as much as mine do!
You could always serve these to adults too, because let me assure you, I put away my fair share.
Just add a basil leaf to make it fancy and grown-up
