1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 ½ cups all purpose or whole wheat flour
and any other toppings you might want!
Olives, bacon, onions, peppers, ham, pepperoni, hamburger, and I usually add some Italian seasoning and garlic salt.
Cook in 425 degree oven until cheese is light brown, 20 to 25 minutes. - makes two pizzas

The pizza, warm out of the oven. (we didn't get very many of the pizza making)
½ cup molasses
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter or shortening
1 tablespoon milk
2 cups flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. powdered ginger
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter some cookie sheets. Heat the molasses to the boiling point, then add the sugar, butter or shortening, and milk. Mix the flour with the baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Add to the first mixture and blend well. Add a few tablespoons of water, enough so that the dough holds together and handles easily. Roll or pat out the dough about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into large or small gingerbread men, (or other shapes) using special cookie cutters or a very sharp knife. (We just used the plastic ones that Anna got for her birthday last year.) Bake 5-7 minutes. When cool, frost with vanilla frosting and decorate with candies, raisins, or any other decorations you might like! :)

Jack helped the kids make it. Which was a good thing!

Of course you have to have frosting and sprinkles! :)
Anna and Aiden busy putting frosting on their cookies!
And last but not least some of the finished projects! :)
By the way, Jack let the children that did the pizza help decorate the cookies!
I even got to decorate a few! :) Well that's all for now!
