Yeah, you read that right – Peacock Pizza.
“What ever could you mean, Jenn?” you may be thinking to yourself right now “Why would you eat a peacock?”
Hehe, I don’t mean it’s made of peacock, just that I assembled it to look like a peacock 😀
I think food should be fun and some times it’s the presentation that is the funnest part.
This is really simple, silly, and salty, but it might not be a flavour kids enjoy very much so I like to think that it’s more for the kid inside us grown folks 😉
1 gluten free, personal size pizza crust (I used a rectangular one, but choose whatever you want)
2 tbsp vegan Daiya Jalapeño Havarti cheese spread
1 chopped green onion
15 large green pimento olives (no pits)
15 raw or roasted almonds
2 tbsp sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
4 slices pickled Jalapeño
There are 2 parts here – the pizza and the tapenade. I started by pre-heating the oven according to the package instructions for my crust. As the oven was getting ready, I spread the Daiya on the crust and sprinkled the green onions on top. I put that in the oven and left it for 12 minutes. Moving on to the tapenade, 1 put all the other ingredients into my Vitamix on low and started to chop them together (this took about 1 minute). I scooped the tapenade into a small ball on one corner of the plate to make a body, grabbed a silly little spoon I keep around for feeding my nephew, and then cut the pizza into thin strips and arranged them to look like tail feathers. Voila – fun food! We had this for breakfast today since we were a bit tired of sweet meals first thing in the morning. I’m sure you can do something similar for your kids if you combine some medium-firm veggies they like.
Let me know what you think 😀
