Turkey Pizza

Turkey Pizza

I have been trying to get my son to try peppers for awhile now. He keeps turning them away. I found some really sweet peppers and had him help me create a turkey pizza using them. Guess what! He likes them a little now. He still doesn't love them, but he was willing to try them--which is a start. I think it's because kids are more prone to try foods that they've helped make.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. bread (1)
  2. tomato sauce (2 spoonfuls)
  3. shredded mozzarella
  4. peppers (1 each: sweet red, yellow, and orange)
  5. olive (1)
  6. tomato (1)
  7. canned mushrooms (2 pieces)
  8. cookie cutter (turkey)
  9. plastic knife
  1. We started by cutting a turkey out of a sandwich thin with a cookie cutter.

  2. Then my son added a couple of spoonfuls of tomato sauce and sprinkled mozzarella cheese on top of it.

  3. My son practiced his cutting skills by slicing the sweet peppers with a plastic knife.

  4. A bit of tomato was added to represent the waddle and a little of the yellow pepper was cut to be the beak.

  5. We added the pepper slice feathers to the back of the turkey. A bit of black olive was then added for the eyeball and two little bits of mushroom were added for the turkey's legs. Gobble, gobble!
