To commemorate finishing our recent bedtime read-aloud, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, we enjoyed a nice family night of build-your-own-pizza and a movie last night. I know it's not exactly like Lewis Carroll's version, but we decided to watch the newer Disney one with Johnny Depp in it. The girls fixed their own pizzas and we watched the movie on the couch with popcorn. It was actually a really great version! Here are a few shots of our evening.
If you're wondering how to make these yourself, they are super easy and your kids will love to make their own!
Whole Wheat Pita Bread
Crushed Tomatoes with Basil
Dash of Garlic Powder, Oregano and Red Pepper Flakes
Your Favorite Toppings ~ We used spinach, natural black olives, mushrooms (that I sauteed in butter with a pinch of Sea Salt first), purple onion, bell pepper and tomato
Preheat oven to about 425 or 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with Olive Oil spray (just so the pitas don't stick). Place pita on sheet, spread with crushed tomatoes and desired seasonings (I left the red pepper flakes off of the girls' pizzas). Sprinkle a single layer of cheese on top of the sauce and then let your kids go to town with the fixins. Sprinkle some more cheese on top and bake until the cheese melts or the pizzas are to your liking. Top with grated Parmesan and more red pepper if you like. Enjoy.
