Making Monster Pizza for a Healthy Halloween

Ready for a little family fun at dinner?  It’s Monster pizza making time!  These pizzas are great for any family pizza night, but they’re even more awesome for an easy Halloween dinner. They are what I call total ‘yum fun’.

In addition, making monster pizza is a fantastic way to get the kids to eat more veggies. They will have a blast with their artistic food creations and will surprisingly discover that veggies on pizza are a very good, tasty addition. 

I know, I know…if you have a picky eater you’re doubting me and saying ‘not my kid’.  However, with my Fidget pizza making events, it’s been proven over and over that even picky eaters will create and eat.  I like to think of it as ‘crafting with food’.  Maybe your picky eater won’t, but maybe they will…it’s worth the try.

Pesto:  Try both a traditional basil and a sun-dried tomato.  They are delicious once baked in the oven.  Just a light layer adds a whole lot of flavor; my whole family loves pesto as a sauce alternative.

    1. Thank you! You are lucky to be heading towards spring (lol), we are heading towards winter here (brrrrr).

  2. wow, they are some super monster sized pizzas. I agree, pizza is a great way to get kids to try new foods and when they make it themselves they are more likely to eat it too.
