Great for young kids I used this recipe as inspiration when working with my son's co-op preschool class. We do cooking activities once a week and we set up a make-your-own pizza station which was a huge hit with our group of 4 and 5 year olds. In addition to the toppings listed, we had a bowl of olives, chopped ham, pineapple, and green peppers. It was fun to see kids varying opinions about things like black olives and green peppers- some of them loved them, some said "yuck!" at first but then were willing to try (and even liked!) these foods once their friends ate them. We used whole wheat English Muffins, and also baked in the oven (about 10 minutes at 400) vs. a toaster as we do not have toaster ovens at the school. A large (commercial sized) sheet pan worked perfectly for about 18 pizzas. Two household sized cookie sheets would probably work for the same amount. We put them on parchment paper so that we could write names by each pizza so each student could be sure to get the one they made. Lots of positive comments made and several parents and students mentioned that they were definitely going to make these at home.
