Cooking with Kids: Pizza Bagels

This is really more of an idea share than a recipe share!  Putting together a pizza bagel is kind of a no brainer!  The first few days of our school vacation have been cold and rainy!  I know I am always looking for ideas on how to keep the kids entertained, and I'm guessing that many of you are too!   I thought I would share yesterdays make-your-own pizza bagel luncheon  activity!

Pizza Bagels
mini bagels
mozzarella cheese
additional toppings can also be included!!
tomato sauce (I used a can of Natures Promise Sauce because that was all I had on hand!)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with cooking spray.
2.  Give each child a mini-bagel on a plate, a bowl of cheese, a bowl of sauce and a spoon.
3.  Let them have at it, adding as much or as little of each ingredient, depending on their preference!  
4.  Bake for about 10-12 minutes.  Broil on high for another 2 minutes or so.  The cheese will bubble and brown nicely!

Each of the girls were given a mini-bagel, a bowl of sauce and some cheese!  Of course you can include whatever toppings your children prefer.  Mine like to keep it simple.  

The girls take pizza making very seriously!  After they carefully constructed their masterpieces, they organized them on a foil lined baking pan.

This nice recyclable mess took no time to clean up!

And they were a hit!
