Make sure the kids have all washed their hands well.This is easy pizza that is really fun for the kids.
Canned biscuits. The small size, not Grands.
Pizza sauce for dipping
Use kitchen scissors to cut each biscuit into four pieces. Here’s the fun part…
Give each child three or four pieces of biscuit. Have them hold the pieces with two upturned hands put together. Add pepperonis to the biscuits and sprinkle with cheese. Have the kids squeeze the ingredients together to form a ball. Place the balls into muffin tins sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or so and the edges are golden brown.
Let cool some before eating and use dipping sauce if desired.
English Muffin Pizza
Place English muffin halves face-up on a cookie sheet. Spread some pizza sauce on each muffin. Top with pepperoni (if desired) and cheese.
Bake at 50 degrees for about 5 minutes until cheese melts.
Crescent Roll Pizza
Open a package of crescent rolls and lay the triangles on a baking sheet. Add a few pepperonis and 1/3 to ½ stick of string cheese to each triangle. Roll up and bake according to directions. Eat as is... or dip in pizza sauce.
Use the empty pizza sauce can to create circles from the tortillas. Set the open end of the can on the tortilla and use a firm rocking motion to cut out a circle. Each tortilla should make 3-4 circles. Place the circles in a greased muffin tin. The tortillas do not need to come all the way up the sides. Add some pizza sauce to the cupped tortillas, the pizza toppings of your choice and cheese.
