Mini Pizza Sandwiches

2013 Kids Recipe Challenge Winning Recipe: 2nd Place!  

Kylah, from Thornhill, says this is the best recipe she has ever made! You can switch up the veggies and the cheese to make it your own (but Kylah recommends trying her choices below).

Pizza is always a lunch time favourite and creating your own flavours is a big treat in many households. This sweet and tangy vegetarian version is colourful but can be changed up to the taste of each child.
