A while ago, our family fell in love with the Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. This little lady bug pizza is basically the kiddie version - same ingredients, but add some olives for the spots.
This recipe is from another one of my Rachael Ray books (Can I praise my mother-in-law enough for the stack of cookbooks in my kitchen? Never :) This one is called Rachael Ray, Yum-O, The Family Cookbook, and it is crammed full of food that adults would typically eat - transformed into kid-friendly snacks and meals. She also has tips on how your little one can help prepare the meal. Good, good stuff.
I guess you could say we had our own little ladybug party this afternoon. The manchild and I ate these for lunch while I read him from one of our favorite Sara Gillingham series. On My Leaf. They are just the cutest books! I received a few from the manchild's baby shower and ended up using up a Barnes & Noble gift card for a couple more.
Woah. I think that's the first time I've ever really told a story not related to food on here. Weird.
Lady Bug Pizzas
Rachael Ray, Yum-O Family Cookbook
4 T homemade/store-bought pesto (here's my recipe)
2 whole wheat/white English muffins
1 C shredded mozzarella cheese
4 slices of ripe tomato
1/4 cup black olives, sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Slice English muffins, so there are 4 separate slices. Spread about a tablespoon of pesto on each slice and top with 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella. Add on your slice of tomato and dot your tomato with olives. Cook for 8 minutes, or until bread is nice and crispy. Serve warm.
