What makes this easy pizza recipe so great is that an Ella’s 1 Baby Food veggie variety IS the sauce. Parents love that it’s so simple and kids love this cheese pizza recipe because it makes 4 individual pizzas that they can top on their own. Have your little ones play a game and see if they can smell the fresh veggies and herbs with their eyes closed and identify them.  Eating veggies can be FUN!
