We've used different toppings throughout the years, but this day we picked the classic cheese and pepperoni. Feel free to use what you have on hand and create different combinations. Let kids experiment with different flavors. Since the pizzas are so little you can make lots of different kinds without feeling like you will waste it if you don't like it. Give the kids free reign to create their pizzas.
We have made these quick and easy mini pizzas for play dates and kids are always excited to make their own mini pizzas. And since this recipe is a simple one, it's easy for even the little helpers, like my 20 month, old to jump in. I'm pretty sure he ate just as many pepperonis as he put on the pizzas.
Enjoy these quick and easy mini pizzas with your kids this summer!
