Cookin' with Mommy ::Mediterranean Pizza Recipe::

A lot of people ask me how I get little Jaxsie to eat a healthy diet.
My most effective method is, I let her cook with me!
She's a boss in the kitch and it's great bonding time for us.
I think it's a self esteem booster for her too.
We make a huge deal about how she cooked the meal and how yummy it was.
She gets beyond herself with happiness and eats what she made.
Anyways, pizza is our favorite thing to make together.
So today we would like to share with you our Vegan Mediterranean Pizza recipe.
This recipe can be easily unveganified. I love making up words.

Tip: Cooking with children is done best when you're in a good mood.

 1 cute kid
1 pizza crust
2 Tbs of pesto
3 Tbs of red pepper hummus
1/2 cup of kalamata olives, sliced
1/4 cup of basil leaves, shredded
4 white mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup of onions, sliced
1 handful of spinach
1 cup of vegan mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 slices of tomato cut into chunks

First, spread the pesto on the crust.

Then spread the hummus and add the spinach.

Add the onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, olives and basil. I also added feta cheese to half of the pizza for my hubby.

Top with cheese.

Cook the pizza according to the time and temperature on the pizza crust package.
Here is some cuteness to look at while your pizza bakes.

Now that your pizza is ready, ENJOY that thing and praise your baby for the work he or she did.

What's your favorite thing to cook with your kiddos?
