Healthy homemade pizza crust and sauce are easier than you think! Here, the crust lets you sneak whole-wheat flour and flaxseeds into a kids’ favorite, while the 3-ingredient sauce keeps things simple and healthful. For extra slumber-party fun, prepare the dough and sauce, then put the toppings in bowls so kids can decorate their own pies. Just be sure to have extra veggies available so they can snack while they create.
