Special Touch
It’s edible artwork! When used as a hearty snack, the pizzas are both an activity and something to eat. What a winning idea for after school!
English muffins can be used instead of the bagels. Toast the muffins before topping.
When making these pizzas with younger children, it’s a good idea to have the toppings cut and sliced in a variety of ways ahead of time. Then there’s no risk of kids using sharp knives. And there will be less mess and wasted food.
