Personal size pizza

One of our boys favorite foods is pizza. They are not your typical pizza kids though. And they each like different toppings.

Little T loves three cheese pizza (mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan) with the occasional pepperoni, ham, and sometimes pineapple.

Drama King prefers his pizza topped with mozzarella, pepperoni, ham, bacon, pineapple, green bell peppers and a sprinkle of cheddar on top.

The one thing that we can all agree is that were not a red sauce family. Our preference is garlic sauce and our recipe to make it is very simple.

Of course, the boys love to help make the pizza from the start so here’s our recipe.

We use Cheri’s pizza dough recipe which makes 2 medium pizzas so we can makes 4 small or 6 kid sized pizzas. We use a white pizza sauce that consists of 1 cup of buttermilk ranch dressing & a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic (fresh) to cover 2 medium pizzas.
