Margherita Pizza Wheels, Kids Can Cook too!

Leave a comment

Meal times are a great way to connect with your family over dinnertime conversations! Even more, preparing meals are a unique opportunity to get kids involved in a hands-on activity with a delicious reward. Little hands will have so much fun rolling the pizza dough into pinwheels! I particularly love this recipe because of it’s versatility. Feel free to customize this recipe to fit your diet: instead of using regular crust, swap it out for a gluten free option. Also, add in your favorite veggies and toppings to make a meal that’s kid-approved!
