Ingredients

For each single-serving pizza

  • 1 whole-wheat English muffin, split
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium tomato sauce
  • Broccoli, pepper, mushrooms, and tomatoes, for toppings
  • 1/3 Cup fresh, shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

For each single-serving pizza

Before you get cooking, make several "flashcards" by writing different fractions on them.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spread tomato sauce on split English muffin halves. Let your kids draw from the "fraction flashcards" and then decorate the pizza with vegetables to match the selected fraction. Cooked broccoli, peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes are some of our favorites. Sprinkle with fresh mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Watch out or you might have some fun next time your at the local pizzeria! We’ll take 3/5’s green peppers, 1/3 with onions, and 7/8’s with mushrooms!

Pizza Shopping Tip

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Cooking Tip

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.

Pizza Wine Pairing

Grenache, gamay, nero d'avola, pinotage, rosé; pinot gris/grigio with seafood pizza; albariño with white pizza.
