Lily’s baguette pizza bites

Lily always enjoys baking, so I decided to try something different with her. So today we made some baguette pizza bites. A simple thing to make, that I knew she would really enjoy. Pizza is one of the few things that Lily likes to eat, always with pepperoni.

Ingredients

This is a very simple thing to make, which is why it’s always a popular one to make with the kids. All you need is:

  • a baguette
  • tomato sauce (we used a jar of smooth sauce)
  • grated cheese
  • choice of toppings

Making the baguette pizza bites

I cut the the baguette up for Lily, as it was too fiddly, and difficult for her to do. After that it was all Lily, and I just sat back and watched. After putting the sauce and cheese on, she wanted to get the toppings we could find out. So she could make a different one for everyone.

We had quite a few things, including pepperoni (obviously), chorizo, Salami, ham, and peppers. Unfortunately for Jack no pineapple, as he likes his ham & pineapple. For the record Mum also likes her pepperoni, whilst I like everything hah…though if I had to pick a favourite I’d say a “vegetarian” pizza.

Lily made some pepperoni ones, a “meat feast” one, one with just peppers on, and a plain cheese one for Jack. Here’s a picture of a couple before they went in the oven.

Before cooking

Lily really enjoyed doing this, and I really enjoyed doing what comes next. The eating part! So this is something we will definitely be doing again. Add in a bit of salad and Lily had made tea (dinner, evening meal, whatever you call it where you’re from), and was really proud of herself. Which was really lovely too see. So, now for the finished article.

after cooking

I had a meat feast and a pepper one, and both were really nice. I loved how apart from the cutting the bread, and putting the trays in the oven, it was all Lily just doing whatever she wanted.

Which leaves me to ask the question, which one of the 4 would you have had? Or what would you have preferred as toppings instead?

    I would have never thought to cut a baguette down the middle to use it to make a pizza. What an awesome and simple way to cook

      It’s great, especially if you have leftover baguette that needs using up.

    I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve been thinking about pizza all day! God knows why!

    We love making pizza. You should try Naan pizza! Oh my goodness it is the best and so simple to make.

    You’ve done a great job x

    Okay, this looks like a student dream meal. She’s way ahead in that department. I love that this was mainly her doing it by herself too. Peppers with a sprinkle of chilli flakes for me!

    Pizza on a baguette? Why have I not done this before?
    I cannot think of anyone who would say no to melted cheese and pepperoni, so I love this idea! And I can avoid hassling with dough for pizza crust . . . 🙂

      Hah, yeah it’s such a simple thing, but until someone shows it you, it’s not something that you’re really going to think about.
