Pretty Sneaky!

If your kids are anything like mine, they think vegetables are blechhhy… (yes, that is a word)…. 

Last night, I made them pizza for dinner (and before you go thinking that I am all Martha and stuff – the crust was one of those “refrigeration roll” packages).  The package said to prebake the crust before you put the toppings on. 

I had my food processor out.  I looked in the fridge in my veggie drawer and found baby carrots.  I had a lightbulb moment. 

I put the baby carrots in the food processor and gave them a whizz.  Once they were shredded, I topped the pizza crust with them and gave them a little press:

I threw the pizza crust with the carrots on it in the oven for 5 minutes.  Then I topped it with the sauce (I just used a few tablespoons of plain canned tomato sauce).  Then, I topped with the cheese. 

 I baked it the rest of the way according to the package, which was around 14 minutes. 

When I served it, my daughter said, “why is there weird cheese on my pizza?”  I didn’t say a word.  She took a bite.  Then she said “why are there carrots on my pizza?”.  Okay, so not so stealthy after all.  BUT, she did eat 2 pieces and my son ate 3.  I call that success! 

What stealthy ways do you get your kids to eat veggies????
