Sometimes we need a quick snack or meal. It needs to be gluten free and it needs to be tasty. Bonus points if it's warm (is it just me, or does warm food seem more filling?). Extra bonus points if you can integrate a lesson on fractions into your creation.
With those goals in mind, Pip and I experimented with pizza bites this week. They take two minutes and they are yummy! Here are the first four steps:
1. Crackers (we used Glutino brand)
2. Pizza sauce (we used Mezzetta; it's certified GF)
3. Shredded mozzarella (we used store brand)
4. Pepperoni (we used store brand--just make sure it's certified GF)
When they're assembled, pop them in the microwave for approximately 5 seconds per cracker.
You can spice them up with Italian herbs, you can make them without the meat, you can add a little mushroom slice or banana pepper; just like pizza, the possibilities are endless! And you can individualize for each member of your family, all in the same batch.
I guess we've really missed pizza, since we've now enjoyed these three times this week already. What's your favorite go-to snack?
