Get your kids in the kitchen with this fun and flavorful recipe for kids. Colorful pita pizzas are a part of our Cooking With Kids series. We originally made this recipe in a cooking class through our local chapter of First 5. My kids had so much fun making these colorful pita pizzas, I knew we had to recreate them at home and share the recipe with you.
Start by getting all of your ingredients together. You will need pita bread, pizza sauce, cheese, and your choice of vegetables. You can invite your kids to help cut up the vegetables for their pizzas (like we did with this soup recipe). We didn’t do it this time because I forgot. 🙂
Ask your kids what comes first on the pizza and let them go to town. I love making pizza with kids because it works for all ages. Most kids like pizza and it’s easy enough for the little ones. My daughter (below) is 2 and my son showed us how to make English muffin pizzas last year at age 3.
Now for the cheese.
Offer as many vegetables as possible to your kids – even if they have refused to eat them in the past. You never know what they will choose since it is such an artistic experience. Both of my kids ended up putting all of the different vegetables on the pizza. William even announced that he now likes bell pepper. I don’t know if it will last, but I’m taking that as a mommy win!
Once your colorful pita pizzas are put together, place them on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes in a 425 degree oven.
Now it’s time to eat. Enjoy!
