I am pretty sure both of my kids ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every day for lunch this summer. Now that school has started, I want to switch it up a bit. My older son started preschool again this week, and I like bringing him home to a hot lunch. He really looks forward to it too.
Sometimes, I will break out a cookie cutter and make his lunch into a shape. My lunch creations are usually not those fancy lunches you see on Pinterest, but he loves them anyway.
These Polenta Pizzas are inexpensive, super easy, gluten-free, AND kids love them! I find it a little funny that people are willing to pay so much money for polenta in restaurants. You can make easy polenta using just water and corn meal. PLUS, it literally takes 5 minutes to make. You can add milk to your polenta if you like, but you don’t have to.
Mini Polenta Pizzas
4 cups of water
1 cup of corn meal
pinch of salt
Method In a saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. slowly add cornmeal to the boiling water while whisking the mixture. Take saucepan off the heat and let polenta cool. On a baking sheet, place 1 tablespoon sized balls of polenta and press down in order to make them into little pizza crusts. bake the pizza crusts in the oven for 15 minutes. remove the polenta pizza crusts from the oven and add the pizza toppings and bake for another 6-7 minutes.
These Mini Polenta Pizzas taste good cold or warm. my kids love these, and they happen to be gluten-free as well.
