5 Easy Dinners for Kids

Do-it-yourself Pizza

Pizza is a dinnertime classic, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring -- there are so many ways to dress it up and make it fun! Make your own pies by using store-bought dough and adding your own cheese and toppings. You can also make smaller, personalized pizzas with tortillas, bread slices or pita bread.

As a matter of fact, feel free to get creative with the toppings you add to your pizza. This is a great opportunity to sneak some veggies into the meal, so pile on the bell peppers, mushrooms and spinach. If you want to add meat, go hog wild by adding ham, beef, pork or chicken. Heck, you can even make a breakfast pizza for dinner by topping eggs, sausage or bacon on the pie and using gravy instead of marinara sauce.

Plus, you can get some much-needed help in the kitchen. When it comes to pizza, your kids will love to help you cook -- they'll be more than excited to create their own masterpieces!
