Food Friday | {Pizza Buns}

Wanna have a little fun for your lunch time - grab the kids and teach them how to make some
 "Pizza Buns"
I had a lot of fun teaching the kids how to make a favorite lunchtime recipe...
(forgive the grainy photos - my little point and shoot camera was set on "macro")

Can of refrigerator Biscuits
Pizza Sauce
Toppings of Choice

First:  Check the temperature on the biscuit can and preheat the oven.
Then the fun started right away as I explained to the kids how to make the biscuit can "pop" when you rip the wrapper off.  When cooking with my kids - I am always excited to share the little things that are new to them - like "biscuit popping".
Then the kids each took a biscuit and started stretching it out.
We press the edges first and then form a larger circle.  Be careful not to stretch it too thin.
Then place stretched biscuits on a non-greased cookie sheet.
(there is enough grease in the biscuits to keep them from sticking - I try not to think about that :)
Then the kids each took turns ladling a spoonful of pizza sauce on to each biscuit.
Bring it just shy of the edges to make a "crust".
Top with cheese!!!! YUM
And the add toppings of your choice.  We just had pepperoni - but be creative - another favorite is sliced olives.  What kid doesn't LOVE olives.  
Then bake in oven according to biscuit time and temperature.
Clean up your mess and then sit very cutely in front of the oven door watching your little pizza bun treasures cooking away.
When the timer rings - grab your over mitts and remove the "buns" from the oven.
Then it's time to enjoy!
Since our first lesson on making "Pizza Buns" - my kids have made them twice on their own.
 It is now the most requested Saturday lunch and after school snack.
