Pizza Faces

Holiday cooking with the kids! These Pizza Faces are just the best – I absolutely love making these and so so simple 

Why not let them make their own lunch as part of your holiday activities 

These are the best fun and very simple the kids will so love to make these pizza faces.

For the older kids you can make it more interesting by making the pizza dough if you like.


Do your kids enjoy cooking?

I really don’t want to get on my ‘soap-box’ but I think it’s so important that we teach our kids how to cook the basics?

After all there not many thinks more important that knowing and having the skill to feed ourselves?

I know that with every single child I’ve cooked with – they have loved it!

And you know why not task them to cook one night a week for the family? Everyones a winner?


Fun Pizza Faces 

However these are mega easy, really tasty and bake super quickly in fact in 7-10 minutes.

They are made on English Muffins, so go on show us your Pizza Faces!

I think it’s fun to get out all the ingredients and let the kids choose what they want to make, should it be a bear, a cat or just a little man with broccoli hair?
