Mini pizzas are so kid-friendly already, but I like to make them even more fun by adding little smiley faces, the child's first initial, or hearts with the toppings or by inviting my kids to top their own.
Involving kids in making their own English muffin pizzas allows them to spend time building their confidence in the kitchen and also makes it more likely that they will actually eat their creations.
