Mommy And Me Pizzas

Thank you to Tessemae’s for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own. 

Unfortunately, it’s been a week full of stuffy noses, yucky coughs and sore throats around our house. Our little adventurer has a need to be outside to spread her wings, so being stuck indoors as she fights this cold has been a struggle. But there is one things she loves just as much as exploring…..and that’s food.

Today, we decided to make our own pizza! Cooking with my little nugget is a guaranteed mess but always entertaining! I can’t help but laugh (and cringe) watching her eat half of a pepperoni and then continue to put the remaining pieces of it on the pizza. (Don’t worry, we gave Dad that piece.) But in all seriousness, it was a fun afternoon activity for a little girl who is sick and tired of being, well, sick and tired.

It’s an incredibly easy recipe and SO cheap. I mean, like under 10$, cheap. You can’t beat that!

You need only 4 ingredients:

  1. Pizza crust
  2. Pizza sauce
  3. Mozzarella Cheese
  4. Pepperoni
  5. Tessemae’s Creamy Ranch Dressing

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly oil your pizza crust.
  3. Add desired amount of sauce.
  4. Add desired toppings.
  5. Cook 7-10 minutes or until pizza is as crisp as you’d like it.
  6. Plate your pizza and add your Tessemae’s Ranch Dressing!

Did you know that ranch is actually America’s #1 dressing? A lot of people don’t realize that most ranch brands are full of sugar, preservatives and artificial ingredients. My husband and daughter love their ranch. In fact, sometimes I think Ranch is their main course and pizza is the side dish. What I love about Tessemae’s Creamy Ranch is that it uses only clean, simple, real ingredients – so you can enjoy this Creamy Ranch guilt free. As they say, “There’s nothing hidden in our ranch!” Tessemae’s also makes 25 different dressings, marinades and condiments. They use real, whole sourced food ingredients and are USDA organic. You can find it at any Walmart near you! 

I think it’s safe to say it was a hit at the Garday home today.
