Fresh Spinach Personal Christmas Pizza Trees

The kids are out of school for Christmas break!  I can’t remember when it happened, but at one point, my life was easier when they were in school. Now, life is so much easier (and better) when they are on break!  We slow down in the morning, and spend more time together in the kitchen! What more could a mother ask for!  Spending time in the kitchen with your kids is a great way to connect.  We added a category a few months back called “Kids in the Kitchen“.  We don’t have that many posts in that category yet, but this one would definitely qualify!

Fresh Spinach Personal Christmas Pizza Trees. Christmas is a week away...build anticipation with this festive meal!

These personal pizzas are a little different than regular pizza.  You could make traditional Christmas pizzas as we did in this post, but these are different because we

  • Cooked the crust first.
  • Then added a homemade white sauce.
  • then, topped it with FRESH vegetables!  This is where you can really get your kids involved.  We used the white sauce as glue.  You could provide for your kids a variety of fresh veggies including spinach, peppers, or tomatoes.  Your kids can decorate their trees to their hearts content.
  • And ate!

These pizzas are easy to eat because the white sauce acts as glue to hold it altogether.  The kids just picked up and ate it, just like regular pizza.

What a clever idea! I enjoy reading your posts and usually trying to think how I could incorporate your ideas and recipes into my middle school FACS (Family & Consumer Science- Home Ec) classes. I promote fresh vegetables and whole grains (and the rest of MyPlate) but haven’t pulled together many quick ways of making them interesting and easy for the kids. Thanks for the inspiration!

This is such a cute idea! My son loves fresh spinach,
