Pizza With Piper

Piper Henderson stopped by the Pickles and Cake Kitchen to help Lillie and Sadie put together a cheese pizza. We bought the dough at Publix along with some good sauce and a giant bag of mozzarella .

After rolling out the dough, the sauce went down. Lillie couldn't keep her grubby little fingers out of the sauce and caused a power surge by not listening (it could happen!)

The girls took turns layering the cheese in just the right spots.

Careful cheese placement is key to the perfect home-baked pizza.

We used Victoria's pizza baking trick and it works like a charm. Instead of covering your entire kitchen with corn meal, Roll out and transfer pizza to pizza stone on parchment paper. Once the pie has firmed up, yank out the paper and let it finish on the stone. Preheat oven at 450 and bake for about 15 minutes.

Lillie chews with her eyes closed.

Piper was a big fan of the crust.

Sadie just pretends to eat.

It was a great visit - come back anytime, Piper!


  1. Piper is famous! We had such a nice time. :)

  2. I like that Lily looked genuinely concerned that she made the power go out by poking at the sauce.

  3. Your girls are adorable. If they are anything like my nieces and enjoy food, playing with food and cupcakes, I bet they'll enjoy this:
    Maybe you've tried this already, but my brother just came across it and is very excited to try it with his girls!
