Preschool Lunch Ideas-Mimi Pizzas For Kids

A yummy quick lunch that is sure to please everyone's tummy is mini pizzas.

What you will need:

English Muffins (pre-sliced) Whole Wheat preferred if available.
Store Bought Tomato Sauce for Pizza
Mozzarella Cheese (already grated)
Baking Sheet
Popsicle Sticks
Ready to Serve Cut up Veggies (carrots, celery, and cucumber-all three, or just one or two kinds.)
Ranch Dressing

This is a lunch that everyone can help prepare. It is fun to make, quick to cook, and everyone can enjoy it.

Split the English muffins in half. Give each child two halves (one whole English muffin). Go around and put one spoonful of sauce on each English muffin half for each child. Allow the children to spread the sauce with the popsicle sticks provided.

Give each child 5-6 pieces of pepperoni and allow them to arrange them however they like on top of the sauce.

Next, give each child a handful of cheese that they can sprinkle on each English muffin halve.

Put the English muffins on a baking sheet and place them in a preheated 350ºF oven until the cheese is melted and just starting to turn golden.

While the pizzas are cooking you can sing some of the preschool children's favorite songs and read a book or two, being aware of how the pizzas are doing at all times though.

When they are ready, with oven mitts, take out the pizzas and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes. Then place the pizzas on plates for the children with some ready to eat cut up veggies and ranch dressing for dipping.

This great preschool lunch idea is great served with milk or juice.
