Thai Chicken Pizza

Summer has arrived.  At least, summer vacation is here.  The weather today was not very summery, but I have hope that it’s just around the corner.  I think we have a great summer ahead of us.  Now that we are out of the tiny baby stage it opens up more possibilities.  However, I am a little nervous about how to keep the twins entertained every day.  They have been used to a great part-time preschool schedule and I am not nearly as fun as ten other preschoolers.  We’re going to enjoy Duluth in its prime, though, and get outside as much as possible!  That’s the main thing on our summer to-do list!

Remember that sourdough bread recipe I shared with you?  Well, I’ll often use a chunk of the dough to make a pizza crust.  Pizza is one of those things that B enjoys having weekly.  I don’t mind at all.  I like to load our pizza with veggies and other goodies and it turns into a really nutritious meal! It is also really fun to make mini pizzas for the kids to top themselves for a little family activity.  Our kids LOVE making their own personal pizzas.  Let them play with the dough for awhile and they’ll go nuts.  The pizza we made last night was a Thai Chicken Pizza and, oh my goodness…delicious.  This will definitely be added to the regular rotation of pizzas in our house!
