I have been know to put 2T of cooked wheat or sometimes even...meat in the bottom of the dough cup. Depending on who I'm feeding. My darling kiddos don't know the difference yet and I'm not telling them. I've also been known to make the dough from whole wheat. They don't seem to mind that much either. Both ways they like the flavor, as long as I call it pizza.
Plain old regular spaghetti sauce. 1Tablespoon scooped right into the middle of the dough. You can use homemade or canned as long as your family likes the flavor. My kids like olives. Put a couple of tablespoons of toppings your kids like in there with the sauce. Again, make it something your family will eat. My kids also eat whole cloves of roasted garlic...but it's taken me years of careful training to ensure they will eat almost anything healthy. Nutritionist say it takes 15 exposures to a new food before kids will like it...so don't give up. Just keep giving them options. You will finally find a way they will eat it. They eat olives. Did I say that? The first time Little Man had olives on pizza we where visiting a friend's house. He was 2. He came walking into the room I was in, black teeth and mouth full of emaciated olive. All he could say was, "bugs mama..."Come to find out, it was actually not an olive, but a beetle. Eeewww! However, he to this day, adores olives. Probably because, again, he is a boy. Had I a girl...I doubt we'd ever have an olive in the house again.
Top each muffin with 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and a dash of seasoning (optional). We like sprinkling garlic powder or Italian seasoning on top of the cheese. I preheat the oven to 425 degrees. These are one of those freezer meals I pre-bake. Why? Well...they do make such a handy ready to eat lunch straight from the freezer to the broiler or microwave. It seems a shame to not bake them right away. Bake 15-20 minutes.
Two of these are the perfect little lunch addition for my kids. I may have had a few of them myself. Be sure to scrape the pizza muffins around the edges of the muffin cup with a knife after baking.
There you go.
