My two year old is currently obsessed with Pizza! Not going to lie sometimes we told her some meals are pizza when they are totally not just so she will eat them…Sorry Logie! After a long day’s work the LAST thing I want to do is to spend time in the kitchen and not playing with my children. 😦 I am trying to find more and more recipes that are easy and Logan can help me make! That way dinner is being made and we are spending quality time in the kitchen. (Hook a girl up if you have some of those meals!) I have also found that Logan is more likely to eat something if she is helping with the process-even if it may slow me down. For this Redlocks Recipe I will share my Hidden Veggie Pizza Rolls- this is not a cute “Pinterest perfect” recipe in looks but it is SUPER easy, tastes good, and can hide vegetables inside. 🙂 It took us about 15 minutes to throw together because we were on TODDLER TIME and 20mins to cook!
- Crescent Dough
- A can of Pizza Sauce
- Turkey Pepperoni
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Organic Chopped Spinach (or any veggies of your choice to sneak in)
- Other pizza toppings of your choice.
Roll out dough with rolling pin, make sure to use flour! I like to lay out some parchment paper for easy clean up. While doing this step, I cooked the spinach.
Mix the spinach and pizza sauce together and spread on the dough. I didn’t let Logie help on this part to keep the veggies HIDDEN! Shhhhhhh
Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese! Logan LOVED this job!
Lay on the turkey pepperoni and other pizza toppings of your choice. We keep it simple in the Doyle house.
Carefully roll up the dough tight (note my not perfect roll…it still tasted yummy…remember I am only a supermom in disguise.) Cut into slices…again not perfect.. spray your baking tray with Pam, place accordingly, and top with MORE cheese!
Then pop it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes and have a DANCE PARTY in the kitchen while you wait! P.S. If anyone wants to sponsor me in renovating my kitchen I would be all about that…just kidding…no but really, a girl can dream right?
When the dough is cooked through and cheese is melted voila! A toddler made meal with hidden veggies! We severed ours with some boneless BBQ chicken nuggets on our Nuby Sure Grip Miracle Mat! This plate suctions to the table and is easy to clean! Available on Amazon and at Babies R’ Us.
That’s all to it! This was my first time toying with this recipe, next time I might go a “healthier” route and swap somethings out but all is all it was quick and easy! If you didn’t already read about my quick and easy toddler lunch idea check it out here.
