When I attended National Box Tops University in Minneapolis over the summer, I could not keep away from the station serving the Pillsbury
Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain. I kept sampling the tiny bites of crust spread with cream cheese, spinach, tomatoes and onions. It was so simple, yet so pleasant to my taste buds. If you look at the picture below, taken from the General Mills blog, you can see me, along with fellow members of the Box Tops for Education Panel, hanging out at the table. The server probably wanted us to stop eating all of her samples. Ha!

Kaden is a growing boy. He has an appetite like his Dad – big! At one time I could hold him over with a fruit cup or something small. Now, he basically needs a meal before dinner time.
I'm not the best cook in the world. I can make the basics and read a recipe here and there. I blame it on the fact that I have so many wonderful cooks around me. They like to cook, so I'll just sit back, watch and eat. You'd do the same thing.
But after school, I am on my own. When Kaden says he is hungry, I have to think of something quick and easy to give him. I decided a pepperoni and cheese pizza would do the trick.

Once you have preheated the oven to 400 degrees and greased your baking pan (different depending on the type), crack open your pizza crust.
Unroll the dough on the baking sheet. Press it with your fingers until you reach your desired thickness. For fun, you can use a cookie cutter to make cool shapes for mini pizzas. I just chose the traditional route.
Place the plain pizza crust in the oven for a pre-bake for approximately 8 minutes.
Once this is done, remove the pizza crust from the oven. Add your tomato sauce and other toppings to the pizza crust.
Place the pizza back into the oven for approximately 6 to 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Keep an eye on your pizza. You don't want it to burn or turn out too crispy.
When you're done, it should come out looking great and smelling delicious.
Kaden can be a picky eater at times. Lucky for me, the pizza was a hit...or either he was hungry. Either way, he ate it all. I added a salad to make sure his belly would make it to dinner. I told you he could eat.
