From the Kitchen

Cheesy Baguette Pizza Bites

My kids love to help out in the kitchen, especially when it’s a recipe for pizza. Because who doesn’t love pizza?? We’re baking up some mini baguette pizza bites the whole family is sure to love! This recipe is so simple and requires no pizza dough making. Your kids will love choosing different toppings and making their own little pizza bites. Top these mini pizzas with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, olives, etc. Get creative in the kitchen and enjoy!

I’m happy to be partnering with Disney-Hyperion and their new picture book Nanette’s Baguette by author Mo Willems. We love the Pigeon series written by Mo Willems, and Knuffle Bunny is one of our family’s favorite stories as well! In comes this new story about Nanette and how she gets to pick up the baguette from Baker Juliette. It’s a silly rhyming story kids will love!

More about the book, Nanette’s Baguette:

Today is the day Nanette gets to get the baguette! Is she set? YOU BET! Mo Willems’ hilarious new picture book, Nanette’s Baguette, follows our plucky heroine on her first big solo trip to the bakery. But . . . will Nanette get the baguette from baker Juliette? Or will Nanette soon be beset with regret? Set in a meticulously handcrafted-paper-modeled French village, the uniquely vibrant laugh-out-loud world of Nanette’s Baguette may be Mo’s best creation yet. Get set to krack into an irresistible tale you won’t soon forget!

We’re celebrating this story all about baguettes by baking up some yummy pizza bites. Be sure to let your little ones hear that “krack” of the baguette as you prep your snack!

Cheesy Baguette Pizza Bites


  • baguette
  • pizza sauce or marinara sauce
  • shredded cheese
  • optional – toppings: pepperoni, ham, basil, tomatoes, olives


Cut your baguette into 1/2 inch slices. Add a spoonful of sauce to one side of the baguette and spread it around. Sprinkle on some cheese and add any extra little toppings you’d like.

Bake in the oven or toaster oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes, just until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and let them cool.
