I had a friend who didn’t like pizza. This completely blew my mind; pizza is like the ice cream of main courses. You can put whatever the heck you want on it and there really is nothing that is off limits (shoot, there is even dessert pizza).
Plus, it is one of those meals you can have a young child help prepare with very little risk for injury. Sawyer loves to make his own pizza, usually it just involves sauce and cheese, but still gives him that feeling of, “hey, I cooked that.”
We made a trip to the Farmer’s Market of the Ozarks last weekend and decided to stop by one of our favorite vendors, Color My World Farms.
I have blogged about them before (here), but since our last visit, they now sell smaller crusts perfect for kiddos. So we let Sawyer pick our a crust and some sauce to make his own pizza. He was kind enough to share with his brother too. You might also note, my original post was from 2013 and they haven’t raised their prices!
He chose the Garlic & 3 Cheese small crust ($4). John and I choose the Jalapeno & Cheddar Large crust ($7). We purchased one tub of their Original Pizza Crust ($3). The Fire Roasted Tomato sauce sounded yummy, but they advised it might be too much for the kids.
About Color My World Farms’ crusts:

So what is unbleached unbromated flour & durum semolina?
Here is another mom’s blog on unbromated flour (yuck!): http://integrativemom.com/unbromated-flour/
And durum semolina: http://www.natureschoice.co.za/bio-friendly/sundry-health-food-lines/semolina/
How we topped our pizzas:
Sawyer opted for a variety of cheese including parmesan, romano, mozzarella and shredded Gouda.
John and I opted for shredded chicken we baked in the oven with Olive Oil, garlic, and parmesan and shredded Gouda. I brushed our crust with olive oil and garlic. With the spice of the jalapenos (they said they grind up the seeds for their crusts), it was the perfect mix of savory and spicy!
We paired the pizzas with corn on the cob on the grill and John and I enjoyed a bottle of Banshee Pinot Noir.
The boys, John and I all loved our pizza and we will definitely pick up more to make. I am excited to try some of their other varieties of crusts too.
Even if you don’t like pizza, if you’re heading to the Farmer’s Market of the Ozarks, make sure you stop by their booth and say hi!
