Theme: Kid’s Delight – 5 Ingredient Fix

Dish: Pita Pizza with Meatless Meatballs

Kids LOVE cheese, kids LOVE pizza, so it’s only obvious that we have a pizza post for Kid’s Delight: 5 ingredient fix, that I’m hosting this month right here. Thanks to Valli for giving me the opportunity to host.

Coming back to kids and their love of pizza, my 5 year old son is no different. He absolutely loves pizza and he thinks Friday is the best day of the week and he wants everyday to be a Friday just because they have pizza for lunch in school. He wanted me to make meatball pizza because he saw that flavor on the pizza box and wanted to see how it tastes. So, of course I had to make it for him.

I took a shortcut and used store-bought pita bread as the base for the pizza this time. But you can use homemade pita or naan instead. And if you have the time, go ahead and make the pizza base. One time I told my son that I was going to make pizza even before making the dough, he made me realize that making a pizza takes fooooooorever. He probably asked me if the pizza was ready at least a hundred times and started to get grumpy by the time it was ready. So beware before telling your kids about your pizza making. Oh, I just realized I don’t have a pizza base recipe on my blog. I will post one that I use soon.

Here’s my formula for 5 ingredient pizza:

  1. oh wow..looks real yum..even I get the pizza bread from store..but I guess its fine to do that..take it easy:))

  2. Same in my house Pavani. My daughter looks forward for her pizza Mondays at school. Though she is older than your son and wouldn’t dare to ask for meatball one. :))And pitas and other breads make easier pizzas.

  3. Pizza is loved by all at home, esp Kiddo.. Lovely idea to use Pita bread as a base :-)) Kalyani Sizzling Tastebuds Event : MLLA # 59 + giveaway Magic Mingle # 17

  4. Super cool idea ..the elder kid at home (my husband!) would definitely droll over this 🙂

  5. Pavani, you literally had me floored with your pictures! what a tempting sight..Even I wouldn’t mind having these for my lunch. And yes we also end up having pizzas on Fridays..would surely want to try these sometime!

  6. My lil one loved pizzas and it was Saturday Pizza day, now her tastes have changed and it is Saturday ice cream day.As for me I love this platter and would love to have it right now 🙂
