The Little Brush that Could-week 14

Q: Why don't mummies take vacations?
A: They're afraid they'll relax and unwind.

Continuing with the Halloween theme...this week we are making Yummy Mummy Pizza.
As many adults know, cooking is as much an art as it is a science. The process of tasting and adding new ingredients is an endeavor that children are excited to undertake . Like adults, little ones have their own ideas about how things should be done, which of course includes cooking. The mess and extra time spent going at a slower pace is all worth it when that smile creaps across your little ones face!
 I started baking with my kids every Friday night as soon as my oldest was big enough to stand in a chair.
Each Halloween we make these pizzas. The ingredients are so simple and can be adapted to suit any diet. 
I personally like using Grands Biscuits for the crust, but you can also use English muffins or bagel halves. 

What You Need

1 can large biscuits
1 jar pizza sauce
1 pkg Mozzarella String Cheese
1 can (sliced) black olives

Make It

HEAT oven to 400ºF.
ROLL out each biscuit to 1/4 inch thickness
SPREAD sauce over biscuit dough. Pull cheese into thin strips; place in random criss-cross fashion on top to resemble mummy bandages.  Add olives for the eyes.
PLACE on baking sheet.
BAKE 10 min. or until biscuits are done and cheese is melted.
