These whole grain pita pizzas are kid-approved and easy for little hands to assemble. Kids are more likely to eat what they make, so these are a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies. And roasting vegetables in the oven makes them super yummy!

Quick tip: Chopping vegetables up into smaller pieces can make them less daunting for little ones. It is a great way to get kids used to new vegetables or to retry vegetables they don’t like as much.
