"It's okay to play with your food when creating fresh veggie faces for these quick and easy pizzas." — Hidden Valley® Ranch
whole wheat pita bread rounds (6-inch pitas work best)
shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Light Dressing (as much as needed)
Assortment of fresh vegetables pre-sliced and ready for use: rainbow carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, broccoli and olives)
This was so much fun! I had my 2 Grandgirls over to help make these cute and very tasty pizza treats! I cut and chopped the veggies and they put them together. Very creative and heathly food project. We'll make these again. You can be sure of that!
I made this as a part of the Allrecipes Allstar program. I like the idea of getting children involved in cooking and the fun of making the pizzas into artwork, but the ranch dressing was entirely unnecessary and just added extra fat/calories. Additionally, at 375 the baked pita was soggy instead of crisp so it was hard to handle. Since I like the idea of this, I'm giving it 3 stars or "I'll make this again - someday - with some adjustments."
This was good, and a fun way to play with food!
We had a great time playing with our food night. I did make "real" pizza dough and then the kids had blast using red onions for eyebrows, broccoli beards, mushroom eyes and smiles, red pepper and olive teeth. All glued together with Ranch., of course - with more on the side for dipping. Thanks for a fun dinner activity!
These are so easy and so much fun. With Halloween coming up, this will be a project for the little ones who visit. I was experimenting with a jack o lantern look, but I know the little ones will definitely make these much more colorful. These are also very tasty and my grown up boys gave them a definite thumbs up. UPDATE For those who complain about the additional calories and fat from the ranch dressing.........I think the ranch is a great idea to get kids to start eating vegetarian pizza. Many kids will eat just about anything they can dip in ranch. If that ploy works, well it is a step into the world of wonderful healthy vegetables.
This is a perfect recipe for lazy weekend afternoons with kids! My little granddaughters loved making these. We used Exquisite Pizza Sauce from this site--an excellent addition to the great idea! Thanks, Hidden Valley!
Fun, quick, and easy to make! Will put a smile on anybody's face! I'm not fond of whole wheat pitas so I used a flour taco as a substitute...very tasty! Loved the touch of Ranch dressing as a glue....adds to the flavor!
Fantastic, kids loved making and eating this!
