This has quickly become a staple in our house. I picked up the general recipe from a book of kid's recipes. This one has been altered to fit our needs. For example: I don't make my own pizza sauce. Ragu does it for me. It's pretty tasty too! Paige loves to help with this one and it's really quick & easy on the weekends. I make ours in the toaster oven since it's also a convection oven & a microwave. (Definitely one of my best wedding gifts!!)
Ragu Pizza Sauce
Whatever pizza topping your kids love
Cut the English muffins in half and lightly toast
Put a spoonful of pizza sauce on (more or less to taste)
Generously spread the cheese
Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes, or until cheese is all melty and gooey.
I consider this one to be somewhat healthy for Paige. I mean, English muffins are decent enough. I use a skim milk based cheese & fresh mushrooms. The olives are definitely from a can.
Paige helps tear the ham up into pieces. She also helps to put the toppings on her pizza. I think more olives go in her mouth than on the pizza. She will sit and watch the microwave waiting for her pizza to come out. I think the fact that she gets to make it is part of why she loves it so much.
