My youngest son and I are sick today. I have a head cold and he has that nasty croupy cough. We have been curled up on the couch together watching television all morning. Luckily I made this recipe a few days ago and got it all typed up.
My kids love homemade pizza. This is a super easy, very kid friendly recipe that is so fun for Valentine's Day dinner. Just form your dough into a heart shape; how easy is that? Another fun way to make it is to let everyone make their own mini pizza hearts. That way everyone can add whatever toppings they like. Hope you enjoy it. I'm heading back downstairs to do some snuggling with my four year old!
