Making Every Moment Count

This is post 2 for today, head back 1 post for some yummy Hummus Pizza! 

Do you know the BEST time to talk to your kids about life, the Bible, manners, their future spouses, hopes and dreams…you know, the heart to heart stuff?

  In the car.

  Yup, the car. 

It’s guaranteed time with your kids near-full attention! I mean really, where are they going to go? They are strapped in! You have a CAPTIVE audience!

Guess that means its time to put down your cell phone.

016

Guess that means no more starting a movie the second the van door slides closed.

012

Guess that means turning the radio off.

011

Talk to them about what they see outside their windows.  Pray for them on the trip to school.  Talk to them about their day when you pick them up. 

Just talk to them.  Then listen.

Betcha you won’t be sorry………

Kids say the coolest things.

Preparation Instructions

  • 1 whole Refrigerated Pizza Crust Or Enough Dough For 1 Crust
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Garlic Clove, Pressed
  • 2 whole Roma Tomatoes
  • ¼ whole Medium Red Onion
  • 1 whole Seedless Cucumber, Thinly Sliced
  • ½ cups Pitted Kalamata Olives
  • 7 ounces, weight Garlic Hummus Spread
  • 12 ounces, weight Quartered, Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Drained. (I cut them smaller)
  • ⅓ cups Mediterranean Seasoned Feta Cheese Crumbles (I Found No Mediterranean And Did Seasoned Instead)

1. Preheat oven to 425F. Unroll dough onto bottom of lightly greased bar pan or cookie sheet. Gently stretch and press dough to cover bottom. Combine oil and garlic and brush over dough. Bake crust 12-14 minutes or until light golden brown.
2. Meanwhile, for toppings, slice tomatoes in half, scrape out seeds and dice. Thinly slice onion. Slice and quarter cucumbers and chop olives.
3. Remove crust from oven and cool. Spread hummus evenly over crust. Arrange tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, olives and artichokes over hummus. Sprinkle with feta cheese. Cut pizza into squares and serve.

Enjoy!
