An After-School Snack for All to Enjoy

I love making Veggie Pizza for my kids when they get home from school. Their eyes light up as they casually toss their backpacks over a barstool and claim their seat. A little crinkle on their nose tells me they are pleased.

It’s nostalgic to have something warm and ready as an after school snack. Veggie Pizza is a perfect replacement for frozen (filled with who knows what) pizza rolls — something I never had as a child (Thank you, Mom!!). I was introduced to pizza rolls in my mid-20’s, at Girls Beach Weekend. I think I ate the whole bag, they seemed so delicious at the time… it must have been the wine?!

Anywho, skip the frozen pizza rolls and go for Veggie Pizza! Your kids will love it and I know you will too!!

1) Place zucchini slices in a baking dish. Layer each slice of zucchini with red sauce, meat and veggies.
