Cooking With LL: Pizza

Now that Cooper is here, we've been trying to think of fun things that we can do with LL around the house.  One of the things that we discovered that she really enjoys doing is cooking!  Each Friday night we take turns with cooking something with LL.  A few weeks ago she and Daddy make Congo bars (kind of like a cross between a cookie and a brownie).  This week it was my turn and we made...PIZZA!  I have actually never made homemade pizza, but I was really excited to try it out!

Ready to get cooking!

All of our ingredients

She was ready to go!

Her favorite part - the cheese!

Too bad I couldn't really get her to help with this part - she was too busy trying to eat it!  This girl LOVES some dairy products.

I finally convinced her to put some on the pizza - haha.

But it didn't last long.  :)

She was sneaking in bites wherever she could get them!

First time trying pepperoni...

...and she's not a fan.  At all - haha.

Putting on onions and black olives (her fav).

Ready to go in the oven!

I came around the corner and this is what Daddy and Coop were up to.  ;)

All done!

I wish I could show you some pictures of LL eating the completed pizza.  But I can't, because she refused.  She "doesn't like the sauce" - haha.  Oh well - at least we had a blast making it!
