My family is pulled in so many directions during December: Church Christmas pageants, caroling, recitals, school finals, parties, and shopping. All of these activities make it harder for us to sit down as a family and enjoy a meal together. My solution? Fast and easy recipes that can be assembled in minutes and made with ingredients that will convince everyone to find room in their schedule to sit down and enjoy dinner together.

You could even do this in big batches for the freezer! Just put a piece of parchment paper between each one. I make mini pizzas with English muffins this way too, wrapping them separately and putting them in a freezer bag. (SO much cheaper than the store bought kind!) Thanks for the recipe! :)

This was a crowd pleaser!!! My kids (ages 8, 6, 3, and 14 months) ALL loved this! My older 2 made a couple extra to bring to school for lunch the next day. They loved getting to make their own pizza and I think that being served individually made it extra special. They also voluntarily put fresh veggies on them (I offered mushrooms, bell pepper, and red onion). Thanks for the great dinner!
