Pizza Day for Grown-Ups

What's the one thing kids who are picky eaters will always eat (besides chicken nuggets)?

Pizza right?  And what do they normally want on their pizza?

CHEEEZE only!  or PEPPERONI!!!!!!!!   Ugggg!

Us grown-ups have to stand up for our rights.  We love pizza too!

We're sick to death of Pepperoni! 

Well today is pizza day for adults.

Mini Veggie Pizza with Spinach, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Cream Cheese.....all the stuff kids won't dare let you put on their pizza.  Now that's what I'm talking about!

Here are the cast of characters:

1 Package of Individual Thin Crust ready-made pizza crusts (I like to get the whole wheat, but the individual whole wheat crusts are hard to find)

1 Tub of Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese (or if you like Garlic Onion flavor, that will work too)
Grape Tomatoes, diced into thirds

Baby Portabella Mushrooms, diced

Bag of Baby Spinach

Cube of Mozzarella, shredded (please shred yourself and don't buy the pre-shredded.  Yuck!)

Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese (I forgot to put that in the photo)


Take your individual ready-made pizza crust, and spread it with the cream cheese flavor of your choice.
Notice we are not going with your typical "kid choice" red pizza sauce. 
Adults Unite!

Now start sprinkling on your baby spinach leaves, then the mushrooms, then the tomatoes.

Now don't forget to pile on the freshly shredded Mozzarella cheese.  You heard me didn't you?  "Freshly Shredded".  Please, I beg of you.

Ok, now pop this little darling into a pre-heated 400 degree oven.  Put it directly on the oven rack, not on a cookie sheet.

HURRY HURRY HURRY........OH HURRY UP. Sorry, I forgot I'm suppose to be an grown-up.

Ah mine all mine.  Don't forget to Sprinkle Sprinkle Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Come to Momma!

Only one bite and I feel like such an Adult!

Grown-Ups unite!  It's pizza day for us!   Where your kids will say "Yuck".  And you can say "Mine all Mine"

P.S.  Another one of my favorite adult combinations is sliced jalapenos with either crumbled sausage or hamburger.

Whatever your adult taste buds crave, go ahead.  It's our day!

White wine highly recommended.
