Now, on to the PIZZA PARTY!
Recently my oldest son hosted his first sleepover! His cousin came over last weekend for 24 hours of playing, running, eating and sleeping. It was a huge success, the boys both had so much fun and our son was pretty exhausted by Sunday evening!
I wanted their Saturday night/sleepover dinner to be a fun time, after all, this was my son's first hosting gig and I wanted it to be extra special. So I figured, "Hey, what kid doesn't like pizza?" (Actually I must admit, my brother and I both didn't like pizza when we were kids, but we soon wised up!) Anyways, I decided that we were going to have a "MAKE YOUR OWN MINI PIZZA NIGHT" for supper, and it was a huge hit! Here is what we did:
Bakestone Brothers Multigrain Thin Bun (found at Costco)
Pizza Sauce (in the squeeze bottle = more fun!)
Deli Meats (pack from Costco - Hot Capicolli, Pepper Salami and Hot Salami)
Heat oven to 350F.
As my nephew would say, they were "deeelicious" and both boys gave the pizzas "thumbs up". My husband and I both really enjoyed them too. So easy to put together, lots of fresh vegetables, even a little fruit! Lots of fun colour, and the best thing, the kids had FUN!
The mini pizzas were so popular that my boys asked that we have them for dinner the next night. So we did. I happened to have a mango on the counter which we added to our list of toppings, and both my husband and my son loved that addition!

Double thanks Val! Have a great night!Delete
Ah! Sounds so good! Two of my kids would love this. One of them doesn't care for pizza, and unfortunately we just found out he is allergic to mangos. Believe it or not, they are in the same family as poison oak! The oils in the skin give him a rash on his face and mouth. Bummer! But I love this recipe and you have a fun blog!ReplyDelete
I had no idea that mangoes and poison oak were in the same family. Weird how allergies work hey. Thanks for sharing! And thanks so much for stopping by!Delete
Looks so good and like so much fun! I love that everyone can choose whatever toppings they want, and since the pizzas are small everyone can try different combos of toppings on different pizzas. Thanks for a great idea!ReplyDelete
The boys did have lots of fun, and it was nice because each pizza was their own personal creation, which meant they ate their dinners without any fuss :-) Though they are usually pretty good, this was like insurance! Thanks so much for stopping by...have a super night!Delete
I love make your own pizza nights, and pita is so great for this. It's so funny because I have a very clear memory of my first lunch play date with a friend at my house when I was probably around 5 or 6 and my mom made us English muffin pizza's. Funny the things you remember! Thanks for a great post!ReplyDelete
And thanks for a great story! I always love reading what you write. Thanks Kathy for stopping by, glad I triggered a nice memory :-) Have a great day!Delete
We did mini pizzas at my son's birthday party. Huge hit with the boys. :)ReplyDelete
