Easy Cheesy Pizza for the kiddos

I thought I would write a review/recipe kinda thing for some pizza dough I tried for dinner tonight- I used for the first time ever Pillsbury Pizza Crust Classic and I must say, the kiddos loved it- My house smelled something like a school cafeteria and I mean that in a good way- I dunno where u grew up or if you enjoyed the smell of freshly baking lasagna or pizza from the cafeteria- but as for me I loved it <3 and so I was very pleased when the pizza had been cooking for about 10 minutes and then came thee aroma haha : ) 

Simple Pizza instructions : )

First Preheat your oven to 425' Take your Pillsbury Pizza Crust Classic dough- I used 2 containers

and Grease a 12x16 inch pan, then take your dough and use one container for each half of the pan (shown below) Spread with fingertips evenly (I left mine thicker maybe about 1/4-1/2 inch thick

Then spread your sauce- I used a basil flavored red sauce Cause it's kinda sweet and smells delicious : D -I used about 1- to 1 1/2 cups for the whole pizza then I sprinkled the whole thing with garlic powder Mmmm Gotta love garlic : D

Then add your cheese- I used about 1 1/2 cups of Fiesta cheese, 3 slices of Kraft cheese cut into triangles ( cause it looks cute and the kids loved that flavor best: ) and about 1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese from the bag- Don't forget to spread evenly-

Then you can add whatever other toppings you an your kiddos like, (I just went with pepperoni because that is the ultimate kids pizza and a sure to please topping haha) but I wouldn't use too many toppings on the pizza because it might take too long too cook and then the crust might cook unevenly?

-Then bake it at 425'  for 13-17 mins > Mine took only 14 minutes, but it really just depends on how fast your oven heats up etc.

And that's about it, it was as simple as 123 LOL- but it was delicious and because I have toddlers I cut the pizza into sticks about 2- 2 1/2 inches thick and 5 inches long- I hope you and your family enjoy this simple yet yummy pizza as much as mine did 
bon appetit : D

This pizza looks especially cute served on bright plates with salad and fruit <3
