Sadie helped me make lunch today. We made little bagel pizzas. It's pretty simple and Sadie was thrilled to be able to help in the kitchen. Here's what we used:
7 mini bagels (English muffins work too)
1 cup of pizza sauce
Basil, Garlic Powder and Oregano to taste (we used about a tbs of each)
28 pieces of pepperoni (2 for each slice)
A small can of sliced olives
First we combined the pizza sauce with the herbs and mixed them in a small bowl. We ended up needing about twice as much as is shown here (about 1/2 cup is pictured).
Then I sliced the bagels and spread on the pizza sauce (Sadie isn't quite ready for this, potentially messy job):
Now it was Sadie's big moment. She added the mozzarella cheese I had grated. I then asked her to put two pieces of pepperoni on each pizza and then gave her olives to sprinkle, one pinch at a time (when I gave her more than one pinch at a time they all went on one pizza, so pinch by pinch it was!).
Sadie stepped back as I put the pizzas in our 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes. Here's the finished result:
Even Mae Bae finished her mini sliced pieces, before falling asleep at the table:
As you can see here, Sadie was very excited about her first cooking experiment! I have a feeling I'll be having more and more posts of this sort, since she's having so much fun being in the kitchen!
