Kid-Friendly Thai Pizza


Kid-Friendly Thai Pizza

My kids really enjoy these fun pizzas! You can’t go wrong since everyone loves pizza, right? It’s just a little twist on a traditional favorite. And if your kids would prefer different toppings, feel free to add your kids’ favorite veggies to make it more personalized to them. Plus, don’t forget to get your kids in the kitchen with you preparing their own pizzas!

My 4 and 2-year-old usually start out by splitting one whole pita as that size seems to fit them well. We served the pizzas with sliced cucumbers for more crunch, color and nutrition.
