For a kid-friendly holiday idea that won't take more than 30 minutes – look no further than these festive Christmas Pizzas. The holiday season is busy enough with gifts to buy, parties to attend, and cookies to bake, so a weeknight dinner that also pulls double duty as a Christmas treat is a welcome option on our tables. This simple recipe for Christmas Pizzas, in the shape of stockings and candy canes, begins with one of our favorite convenience items: pre-made pizza dough. Roll out your dough evenly onto a floured surface, and then cut out with cookie cutters into your favorite holiday shapes. Stockings, stars, candy canes, and reindeer make fun, playful pizzas! Bake your shapes at 400˚ for about 8 minutes before adding your favorite toppings. Marinara sauce and mini pepperoni add a bright pop of red to your pizzas, and fresh basil gives a touch of green. If your children aren't a fan of greens, skip the basil for a red-and-white theme (like the candy canes!). Top your Christmas pizzas with accents of shredded cheese, and pop them back into the oven for a few minutes to let the cheese melt completely. Serve alongside extra marinara sauce or pesto for dipping.
