Kid-Size Pizza Recipe

This is a recipe born out of desperation. One day I couldn't think of anything to serve the kids for lunch. Rummaging through the fridge, I came across some simple ingredients and prepared individual pizzas. —Polly Coumos, Mogadore, Ohio

"I used the larger buttermilk biscuits, which could be cut in half. They were good re-heated or cold! Rose, Schaumburg, IL"

"I have made these for my kids for years. We even served them to the kids at our church, and they all loved them as well. I use Ragu pizza sauce to make it quicker and easier."

"Too doughy. I kept party-size pumpernickel bread in the freezer, topped it with spaghetti sauce with meat and mozzarella. Great appetizer"

"Cute recipe and quick to make, but probably need to substitute the refrigerated biscuits for something like English muffins. These biscuits tend to have a lot of saturated fats in them."

"When I was a kid my mom made little pizzas from English muffins with tomato paste and shredded cheese on top, then broiled them in the oven. They were yummy!!"

"An even quicker and easier pizza is made with flour tortillas. Spread pizza sauce on tortillas, sprinkle with mozarella cheese and desired topping. Bake at 450 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes. Even my two year old grandson can help make these!"

"Here's a really simple (and very cheap!) pizza sauce recipe that I use with my preschool class. Stir 1 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning and 1/4 tsp. chili powder into 1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce."

"I own a daycare and we make this twice a month for the children. However, we have simplified it somewhat by using hamburger buns or english muffins. We then top it with Ragu Pizza Sauce, pepperoni slices, and grated cheese. Broil until edges are brown and crispy. The kids love it~!"

"We have made these for the grandkids for years. I am all for the easiest way. I keep a jar of pizza sauce on hand. Adding a pepperoni, bits of hamburger, bacon, adds to the fun of making these together."
