It’s an Ugly Sweater Pizza Party! This is how I celebrate Christmas these days. Forget the days of decorating sugar cookies with fun-colored frosting, sprinkles and candies (though, let’s be real, I do love me a cookie party). This year, I went for savory; I cut up FlatOut flatbread pizza crusts in the shapes of sweaters, adorned the table with options for decorating, and let some lucky kiddos go to town making them as ugly as possible.
This was seriously a fun and healthier way to bring kids together at the dinner table, allowing them to get creative during the holiday season. The ingredients list is simple too:
cheese (or use nondairy)–I gave these kids the real stuff since they aren’t allergic
chopped up veggies like multi-colored bell peppers
sliced black olives
whatever your kids’ favorite pizza toppings are
sweater cookie cutter (I got mine from Target)
Quick set up and even easier clean up. That is, if they don’t spill pizza sauce all over the table (it happened at our party). If that’s the case, you might need a disposable cloth underneath.
The end result? Adorableness in ugly sweater pizza form. I really didn’t get much of an opportunity to photograph everyone’s pizzas because they were gone within seconds! All I heard was a bunch of chewing and “Mmmmmm”s in response to the pizza crusts (everyone’s first time trying FlatOut). Party success!
Making healthier choices is easy this holiday season with an Ugly Sweater Pizza Party. Here’s how:
- FlatOut Pizza Crusts*
- Store bought pizza sauce
- Cheese (nondairy or not)
- Chopped up veggies like multi-colored bell peppers
- Sliced black olives
- Other favorite pizza toppings
- Sweater cookie cutter (I got mine from Target)
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Cut up the pizza crusts with the sweater cookie cutter. I got 2 out of each slice. Save the scraps though! You can use it to cut out mini shapes for the sweaters like Christmas trees, a reindeer, even small circles for ornaments.
- Coat with a thin layer of pizza sauce and top however you want.
- Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned to your liking.
