She also made one with cheese for the kids (hence 2 different pizzas.) Just added shredded mozzarella.

3 Comments on Yummy Vegan Flatbread for Thanksgiving

  1. mmmmm. I am hungry now! This recipe screams fall to me – and I love how kid-friendly the ingredients are. My 5 year old and 2 year old will love it. Thanks for the inspiration! Great photos too 🙂

  2. Yes, I said ‘yummy’, because I am looking for appetizers that will appeal to kids as well as adults. I want some to have at the ready all day Christmas day (so breakfast appetizers are also great) for family to munch in between opening presents and playing with presents. Things I can throw in the oven with only a few minutes prep or only need to mix together a few ingredients before it hits the table. Like I said before, I also need them to appeal to kids :0) Thanks!
