New Years Eve Pizza

Published December 30, 2011 7:52 AM by Stephanie Bruno-Dowling

Schools are closed this week and little ones are home for the holidays! Today's post includes some new ideas to keep them occupied as well as some flashbacks to posts from the past!

If you're staying in for New Years Eve this year with your little ones, why not plan out a fun, kid-friendly dinner that they can both help you make and will love to eat? Here is an easy and really yummy way to do it!

Homemade Pizza

You will need:

  • Dough
  • Marinara sauce
  • Cheese
  • Seasonings (I prefer garlic, basil and oregano)
  • Olive oil

Delicious Tip: I like to visit my favorite local pizza place to purchase fresh dough. Most pizza places will gladly sell a dough ball or two for about $1.00 each.

Recipe steps:

  1. Roll out the dough to fit the pan (let your little ones help you roll it out!)
  2. Spread on the sauce of your choosing and a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and use a spoon to spread both evenly across the dough
  3. Layer with cheeses you prefer -- I love freshly grated parmesan and fresh mozzarella
  4. Sprinkle the top with seasonings and any toppings you and your kiddies prefer!
  5. Place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Turn on the oven light so your little ones can watch it bake! Enjoy!

Holiday and New Years Eve Post Flashbacks:

  • Homemade Speech and Language Activities This is a post I wrote exactly one year ago chock full of fun memories to make with your little ones. Ideas include making homemade items such as play dough, music, a collage and thank you cards for all those beautiful holiday gifts.
  • Stimulating Speech While at Home for the Holidays This is a post I wrote back in 2008 which suggests ideas for ways parents can stimulate speech while they are home with their child; especially if there is a lapse in the child's speech services because of school and program breaks.
  • New Years Eve Treats for Tots This is a post I wrote on New Year's Eve, 2010. It is filled with some really great ideas and website links to festive recipes with everything from popcorn balls to yummy flapjacks to help you ring in both the Eve and New Years morning with your little ones.
