Cookin' with Kids

What are your kids favorite foods? Hamburgers? Macaroni 'n cheese? Pizza?

I think if my kids got to pick an evening meal/activity it would be pizza and a movie any night! They love to 'camp out' on our family room floor with some good pizza and a family-friendly movie. We usually order out for the pizza, but here's a fun recipe to try. The greatest thing about pizza is the kids can put whatever they like on it, seriously, ANYTHING!


1/4 pound sliced pepperoni sausage
1 can spaghetti sauce (you may not use all of it)
2 (12 oz) packages refrigerator biscuit dough
1/2 onion, chopped
1 (10 oz) can sliced black olives
1 (4.5 oz) can sliced mushrooms
1 can pineapple tidbits
1 green pepper, chopped
3 cups shredded cheese (mix it up with mozzarella, cheddar, pepper jack...)

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 9x13" baking dish.

2. Cut biscuits into quarters and place in the bottom of the baking dish. Spread sauce evenly over the biscuits. Spread pepperoni over sauce and then sprinkle your favorite toppings over the top.

3. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle top with cheese. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Let stand several minutes before serving.
