When the moon hits your eyes...

like a big pizza pie, that's amore! Today, make a homemade pizza with your kids.  My favorite dough recipe is here: http://moneysavingmom.com/2009/02/homemade-pizza-in-less-than-30-minutes.html

Here's what you do...double the batch of dough so you have some extra to let your little ones have their own to roll or pat out. Then, chop up some veggies (broccoli, spinach, grated carrots are all things we've used around here), grate some cheese, set out some tomato sauce with a butter brush, and get out the pepperoni, cooked ground beef, or shredded chicken for toppings.

Now that everything is out, let your kids go to town on their "personal" pizzas while you make a big one.  Guess what? Your kids will be more likely to eat the veggies if they are making their dinner themselves. When I did this with my kids, they were so excited to be helping they were eating the veggies raw as they made their pizza.

Enjoy spending time with your kids tonight!
