When my kids started school this year, it seemed as if time was altered and the days actually got shorter. However, according to my clock, each day still has a full 24 hours. Unfortunately, I still struggle to find the time to get everything done.
Dinner can be especially difficult since I have three very picky eaters in my house. I will confess that I am one of the picky eaters. I was so bad as a kid that my mother would often make two different meals. One for me, and one for everyone else. (I don’t know how she found time to do that, so before I continue, let me just say, “Mom, thank you and I’m sorry for being such a pain.”)
I am always looking for simple, time-saving meals that can be easily modified to accommodate even the pickiest of eaters. That is why I love to cook with Pillsbury®. Not only do they make great products, but they have also created a wonderful booklet of quick and easy recipes that make mealtime easier.
In my house, pizza is always a winner, so we pulled out our Pillsbury Grands!® Refrigerated Biscuits and all of our favorite toppings to make Grands!® Mini Pizzas. (If we order out, we have to order multiple pizzas to make everyone happy – that is just too expensive… and nowhere near as good as homemade.)
It was as simple as placing the biscuits on a baking sheet, flattening them out into mini pizza crusts, and then going to town with our favorite toppings:
- My pizza: mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms and spinach
- Rahn’s pizza: feta, spinach, yellow bell peppers and tomatoes
- Isaac’s pizza: mozzarella, pepperoni, yellow bell peppers and olives
- Max’s pizza: mozzarella, pepperoni and mushrooms
The end results are delicious and adorable – the perfect quick and easy meal for those busy evenings.
(I also think this would be a really fun idea for a kids make-your-own-pizza birthday party or play date!)
Thank you, Pillsbury® for making my life easier and giving me back a little of the time I thought I had lost when the kids started school this year.
