How to Make Breakfast Pizza & Chocolate Donuts (Plus Making it Educational)

How To Make Simple Breakfast Pizza and Chocolate Donuts With The Kids. Plus Make Cooking Educational For Preschoolers!

 

I love preschool fun…I think more than my preschooler! Our letters the last two weeks have been D and P and let me tell you, there are a lot of D and P foods you can use for these letters. Let’s take some time to whet our appetite.
Think about a scrumptious Deep-Dish Pizza, some Delectable Deviled Eggs, Divine Dirt Pudding, or Delicious Donuts. How about Peanuts and Pasta, Peas, Peppers, and Pancakes? We used all of these things throughout the past two weeks for our meals and snacks – so fun!

Today I am going to share with you how to make a simple Breakfast Pizza and the best ever Chocolate Donuts {seriously…the best}.

I made this pizza for my hubby and kids one morning and it was very well-received. Even my picky 3-year old enjoyed the tasty treat. How can you go wrong with pizza, right?

I bought a tube of refrigerated pizza dough and tried to roll it out on my round pizza pan. I’m not sure why I thought this would work, but please note that it doesn’t. I would recommend that you stick with a cookie sheet! Spread some ricotta cheese over the crust and then top with both mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I like cheese, so I was generous with all of this. Scramble up some eggs in a little butter and a smidge of half and half and place these on top of the cheese. Brown some sausage and green peppers and add that as the top layer. You could use bacon if you prefer too! Cook according to the pizza crust directions and enjoy!

Donut making is a fun family project. I found this recipe on Shugary Sweets blog. I was a little worried because I don’t have a donut pan. I didn’t even know there was such a thing to be honest! But I really wanted to make these yummy treats with my guys so I came up with “Plan B…”which happens to be a funny story.
Plan B was to use a muffin tin and then make a hole in the middle. In my pea brain, this would not only give us donuts, but donut holes as well. I didn’t plan on the donuts rising like muffins…you know, in the muffin tin. So I moved on to “Plan C” which was to cut them in half before punching out holes.
Well, the final result was simply not a pretty “donut” but they sure were incredible!

What letters are your kids learning? Incorporate some of that letter food into your meals. You’d be surprised to see how much it helps your child! If your kids are older, and past the letter learning stage, you can still have fun in the kitchen. Are they learning about a certain culture? Well learn with them and cook up some authentic food. Are they reading a particular book? Incorporate a theme meal to coincide. You get the idea, right?

I’m off to buy a donut pan…Till next week, what is something you can do in the kitchen to inspire your child’s education?

    thanks for the laugh. we made donuts once and just fried them in a bit of oil – for a once in a lifetime treat, the oil won’t hurt you. in PA, the day before ash wednesday is faschnacht day and the donuts are a tradition. maybe we’ll make them again this year – so much tastier than the ones from the store!
