These where not only good but they where so much fun to do with the kids. You can use any ingredients you like and this is an activity that really fosters creativity. I cut up lots of different colored veggies and gave them to my children and it was great to see my little man who usually doesn’t eat vegetables put lots of different vegetables on his pizza because he wanted to make a colorful design.
