School’s out for the summer! Yippy! I actually love it when the kids go on summer break. No more getting up early, rushing out the door and busy schedules. No, now that summer is here we can do what we please, enjoy the early morning sunshine and stay up later. So yesterday, in order to celebrate our first night of summer break, the kids and I decided that we would have a pizza party and stay up late watching movies.
Such a great idea! The kids were hyper and excited.
On the way home from the last day of school we all stopped at Walmart to pick up some supplies for our fun filled night ahead of us. We first made a beeline to the pizza aisle to see what pizza we could all agree on. Mom wanted veggies, the kids wanted just cheese and pepperoni and dad wanted meat.
We always seem to fall into this problem. No one can ever agree.
Just as a fight started to fuel up in the pizza aisle, I spotted a brand new pizza from DIGIORNO®. #DesignAPizza. Brilliant! Now diverse families like ours can buy one pizza and split it into everyone’s favorite toppings and I don’t have to buy and cook several different pizzas.
These looked great!
Next we headed over to the dessert aisle to find something sweet. In keeping with the theme of pizza and summer, I decided to create a s’mores pizza for after dinner. Mmm. S’mores and ice cream? Perfect idea! (We’ll get to that later. You have to eat your dinner first in order to get dessert.) 🙂
We kicked off our first day of summer pizza party with dinner and of course the kids wanted to help (which I love). Being the silly family that we are, we decided to play around with the toppings and create a picture of a flower in honor of summer. The kids thought that was funny and loved being able to play with their food. We shared quite a few giggles last night in the kitchen. I love that.
After playing with our food, I created the great divide. Cheese and pepperoni for the kids and meat and veggies for the parents. Everyone was happy (thank goodness) and we popped the pizza into the oven.
After baking it according to the directions, which only took about 20 minutes, we had piping hot and delicious pizza! They aren’t kidding when they say DIGIORNO® tastes like delivery. It was fabulous and everyone got a slice of their unique toppings.
After our tasty dinner was finished, the kids were geared up and ready for dessert. Remember, we were going to make a s’mores themed pizza? Well, we did. All I can say is Wow!
Here is how we made it:
– premade Nestlé® TOLL HOUSE® refridgerated cookie dough
– Nestlé® TOLL HOUSE® morsels
– mini marshmallows
– graham cracker crumbs
Begin by rolling out your chocolate chip cookie dough into the shape of a pizza. I put mine on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.
Bake the cookies according to directions (about 10 minutes at 350 degrees) Remove from oven.
Cover the baked cookie with chocolate chunks, mini marshmallows and crushed graham crackers.
Return the cookie with toppings to the oven and bake at 350 degrees just until the marshmallows have slightly browned. About 5 minutes.
Remove the s’mores pizza from the oven, cool slightly and serve (preferably with ice cream!).
After our fun filled pizza party, complete with dessert pizza, we all cuddled up on the couch to pick our pizza party movie. . . and the arguing began again. Dick wanted a boy movie, Jane wanted a princess movie, and mom and dad wanted anything besides a cartoon.
Tell me, when are they going to come up with a way to split a movie like DIGIORNO® split our pizza toppings? Because that would be amazing. .
I love my family. 🙂
