February 9 – the day the world celebrates pizza, it’s “National Pizza Day!” What better way to celebrate than making a homemade delicious pizza. Since most of our KES Clubs are Breakfast Clubs, try celebrating by making delicious breakfast pizza! Since the actual day is today, you may be a little late – but better late than never. This recipe is a recipe that you can serve all year around at your KES Club. Make it fun and set up a buffet style table where the students can add their own toppings!
- Small whole grain tortilla wraps
- Scrambled eggs
- Bell peppers, chopped
- Mushrooms, chopped
- Grated low-fat cheese
- Salsa or tomato sauce (low sodium)
- Other additional toppings of choice (i.e. onions, pineapple, etc)
Scramble eggs, chop peppers and mushrooms and grate the cheese. Warm tortilla shells in oven or microwave. Place all toppings in bowls. Allow students to take a tortilla shell and add their own toppings. If desired, can reheat with all toppings in microwave or oven (this may only be practical for a small amount of students). You can always prep these ahead of time too and have them ready to go when the students arrive at Breakfast Club. Enjoy!
