The first time I was introduced to the concept of pizza muffins, I fell in love. Although, they are more like roll-ups, but I don’t care. A small local pizza chain sells pizza muffins filled with sausage, pepperoni, and lots of cheese…..oh they are heavenly. We would order a dozen of them (in addition to our pizza) to bring home and have for lunch for a couple days.
What’s not to love about pizza in a nice portable shape. And the possibilities are endless! Make them anyway you like your pizza…pepperoni or veggie or white sauce with chicken or anything else you can think of! It all works, but there are a few tricks to get them looking great! Once you get the hang of it your kids will beg for them!
I try to keep my kids busy while I cook supper every night, so I was super excited to find this great game that works on our iPad. It’s educational, hands on, and best of all both my kids love it. Osmo has various games that are perfect for kids ages 4-12, but even I had fun playing with the kids. Each game has a focus learning area from creative problem solving, art, STEM, and even common core. It’s a great way for the kids to have fun on their devices while actually learning.
My son loved playing the Pizza Co game while I cooked up my famous Pizza Muffins. But, I think the Tangrams ended up being his favorite. You can buy it here or here or in select stores. Basically, you buy the game base and hands on games. Once you have the game, you can download the corresponding game onto your iPad (I have an old iPad 2 and it was fine). I created separate accounts for each of my kids to keep track of their progress.
I love that they are having fun, but I love that they are actually learning something even more.
Let’s get back to my secret trick….using a muffin pan helps the pizza muffins keep their shape while baking. It’s not required, but it does really help. However, you will definitely need a sharp serrated knife to help cut the dough into rolls. The serrated knife is a must as a regular knife will just squish the raw pizza dough.
