Celebrate Pi Day With A…Make your Own Pizza Pie!

3.14…or Pi as it is known in mathematics circles.  Many schools celebrate the day with all sorts of fun-filled math activities and “pi” making.  You and your children can get in on the fun as well. Instead of a traditional fruit pie, why not do a super easy personal pizza.

For a traditional pizza, spread some tomato sauce on the pita.  (if you want a variation try spreading pesto).

Now the fun begins:  You can top it with any of your favorite sauteed  vegetables.  I used onion, mushrooms and kale sauteed in olive oil.  Try chopped broccoli, olives, cherry tomatoes, green peppers, whatever you enjoy.  You can also add pepperoni, and sausage or cooked ground beef.  My son likes to add cooked diced chicken and fresh basil leaves.

Sprinkle some basil and oregano on top.  You can also drizzle a bit of olive oil.

Slide into the oven right onto the rack for a crispy crust. (I put a sheet of aluminum foil on the bottom rack to catch any dripping cheese.)

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheese bubbles on top.      Enjoy!  Happy “Pi” Day!2015-02-28 06.32.59
