Taco Bell Has Met Their Match!

Sure, I could make a trip to Taco Bell for a quick mexican pizza, but when you're in the middle of a pizza unit study, the process of making the pizza is just as important as the taste.


Wait, A Pizza Unit Study?

Oh yes, a unit study all about pizza! With the end of our home school year approaching, I just had to squeeze in a lesson plan about pizza. Largely due to the fact that my daughter requested it several times throughout the year. So, I got my pepperonis spinning and started putting together a fun and delicious lesson plan...only thing was, with my 8 year old son and official pizza aficionado of the house, how was I going to teach them something they didn't already know about it?


There's Plenty Of Dough.

Over the course of their lives, they had enjoyed so many types of pizzas- fresh, frozen, flatbread, New York style, french bread... the list went on and on. But the list only consisted of risen dough style pizzas!

*Insert oven ding!*

Mama Mia! I had it!

They had never explored (for whatever reason) a pizza made with tortillas- the mexican pizza.


Let's Get Stacking.

So as an addition to our pizza unit plan, we learned the ingredients, process, and taste of the mexican style pizza. Together we created one delicious recipe!

So let's get your tortillas stacking in this fun and easy kitchen creation.
