Andrew and Nathan just finished taping 2 segments on Andrew Nathan Daytime Show Daytime TV show with me – here’s a recipe that we didn’t have time to show on television.

Kids Pizza Racers Recipe

Makes 4 pizza racers

4 hot dog buns (not split)
1/2 cup pizza sauce or pasta sauce
2 cups shredded cheese
16 pepperoni slices
4 pretzel twists
16 stick pretzels
16 cucumber circles

Have your mom turn the oven to 375F. Go get steak knife, and take out the insides of the hot dog bun. Cut a little spot for the pretzel steering wheel. Now you have to get a spoon and put a little bit of the
pizza sauce inside the bun, then four pepperoni slices and then some shredded cheese. You can spoon a little more sauce on top. Have your mom put it in the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Mom will take it from the oven and it’s really hot so you have to leave it alone for a bit. But now it’s time to make the wheels. Get a cucumber circle and poke it with a stick pretzel. You have to make all the wheels. When the racer car won’t burn you, poke the cucumber wheels into the buns. Then put the curly pretzel in the spot for the steering wheel.

    “Have your mom turn the oven to 375F. Go get steak knife,…”

    Yikes. How about we let mom or dad handle the cutlery as well?

    No – I think kids should be taught how to properly and safely use a steak knife. ~jaden

    new to your blog and i’m in love already! i have many recipes to try in my favorites folder. great that your kids love to cook too.

  3. Thank you Jaden: you reminds me so excellent memories, when I was cooking with my 3 sons! Now they cook for themselves (they are 19, 22 and 25 now) when their friends come home. They love cooking and eating now, but prefering when “mom” cooks for them!

    They are BIG KIDS now!! I wonder what Andrew and Nathan will be like when they are that big!? ~j

  7. This is fantastic. My son would love this. Arrrrghf, I don’t have the brains for these kind of things. Thanks for this wonderful idea.

    Nathan and Andrew, you did an awesome job! I don’t have kids yet, but I’ll definitely make these with them when I do. Maybe I’ll have to volunteer to babysit for my friends so I can have some kids to make this with!

    Yes kids should learn how to properly and safely hold a knife. And adults should learn they’re never too old to make kiddie pizza racers. The kids look so adorable and the recipe sounds fun to do.

    I think that this is a super cute idea! They would look very cute at a birthday party.
