We’re halfway through Christmas break, and I’m still loving the solitude. I’m sending love to all my friends who are starting to wish they could send their kids back to school already. Do children ever stop being hungry? Do they ever stop wiping their face on your skirt?
I know I personally ate so much at Christmas dinner, I thought I’d never have to eat again. I sometimes wish I was one of those animals, like an alligator or something, that only needs to eat every few weeks. Surely all that turkey and sweet potatoes should last us a little bit longer. Why do humans seem to never stop eating?
So if you’ve run out of turkey sandwiches but you still need to feed yourself and others, I’m bringing you something simple and quick that will please even picky children. This Super Fast Faux Pizza can be topped any way you like, and it takes basically no effort.
Measure, mix, pour, bake, top, done. We went with simple cheese and pepperoni this time, but you can easily clean out your fridge with this one. This pizza is best eaten straight out of the oven, so bring a hungry friend or two, or maybe some kids into the kitchen to help you finish this off. You could also easily section this off with different toppings for different people. It’s the flexible dish you need to get you through Christmas break stress-free.
Keep the mellow feeling alive. Don’t let anything get in the way of your relaxation. Make life simple by making Super Fast Faux Pizza. It’s gonna be awesome.
