Guide To Make Your Pizza Interesting For the Kids

Kids love to have pizzas, anytime and every time. But often people think that having pizzas from the pizza corners can be unhealthy. If you also think the same, then you can surprise your kids every time by preparing unique types of pizzas. Even if you are not savvy in making the pizza dough by yourself, then you can also purchase it premade from the neighborhood pizza store. In this article, you will find some great ideas that can convert your simple looking pizza into a unique one as per the preference of your kids. So, have these Burlington pizza recipes and get set go!

 Black bean nacho pizza

 You can start infusing your pizza with some different flavor by adding green onions, black beans, roasted red peppers and tomatoes on the top of the dough before adding on cheese. In case your kid loves nachos, then it will be his/her favorite pizza style.

Macaroni and cheese pizza

 In this Burlington pizza style, you can combine two types of comfort foods in one platter. To do this, you can start out with the creamy cheese-drenched pasta and then can use this to top the pre-cooked crust of the pizza. Therefore, you need to meld both the flavors together with the final trip to the oven.

Buffalo chicken pizza

 Does your kid like football? Then he will definitely love this pizza style. This pizza mainly packs the flavor of spicy vinegar of the wing sauce in every slice along with diced pieces of chicken along with the bleu cheese crumbles in with the mozzarella.

Dessert pizza

 You must be aware of pizza as the main course dish. But do you know you can even convert it into a dessert? Just replace the red sauce with the Neutral chocolate spread. Besides, come up with a twist by changing the toppings as well. Well, you can opt for chopped snicker bars or crushed Oreos, smoked almonds, marshmallows, chocolate chips etc. All of these things will be enough to prepare a decadent dessert, which will be fancy enough to serve.

Mini deep dish pizza

Be a little creative while preparing pizza for your kids. Here, you need to use a muffin tin instead of a pizza pan to hold the dough. Then cut the pre-made dough apart into small pieces, roll those out and press the dough into each circle. After that, fill the pies with the preferred ingredients and bake.

How to Extend My Cruise Vacation with a Hotel Stay
One way to extend your cruise vacation is to add a hotel stay. You can stay one day or more in a hotel at or near a port. Stay prior to your cruise and you’ll be sure to get to the port on time. Or, stay post-cruise and you can get your “land legs” back before you head home. Whichever you choose, use these tips to learn how to extend your cruise with a hotel stay.


  1. Determine the main details of your cruise and you’ll still have another decision to make: whether you want to extend your cruise vacation and, if so, for how many days. Also, if you decide to extend your cruise vacation, decide if your hotel stay will be pre-cruise or post-cruise.
  2. Keep in mind that the earlier you book your reservations, the better chance you’ll have to extend your cruise vacation with a hotel stay. Hotel accommodations are limited.
  3. Call your travel agent or the cruise line directly and book your cruise reservations. At the same time, inquire about the hotel packages that they offer. If you don’t have a travel agent, AAA ( is a noted authority on travel, no matter where you live.
  4. Find out what activities are available in the port cities. What can you see there? And what will you do?
  5. Compare the packages that the travel agent or cruise line offers and decide which one would be best for you. Then make the necessary arrangements to extend your cruise with a hotel stay.

How to Budget for a Family Vacation With Low Income
While the money may be tight or traveling expenses can be high, it is possible to take vacations on a low budget. By traveling off season, staying at low cost hotels with continental breakfasts, or visiting national parks where you can take trails, your family can still spend quality and enjoyable time together. If the family works together by saving change, doing odd jobs and cutting back, a vacation can be planned in your family’s future.


  1. Study your family’s income and budget. Find areas where you can cut back on such as extra clothing purchases, dining out, or haircuts.
  2. Save each dime, penny, nickel, or quarters that you get. Purchase or find a big glass jar where all of the family’s change can go. Drop all of your change into the jar each time you have it. Every penny will add up.
  3. Have your children chip in by doing chores or other small jobs around the neighborhood such as mowing lawns, raking leaves, shoveling snow, walking dogs, and babysitting. If the children can help, they will feel like they are part of the project as well.
  4. Clip all the coupons and shop at all of the sales that you can find. Try coupon matching at your local retail store that offers it too. Try to save money on all grocery purchases. Create a weekly dinner menu and purchase only the items needed to prepare meals without buying a bunch of extra food and snacks.
  5. Look through vacation booklets and brochures. Study the places that you and your family would like to go. Plan for low cost hotel stays, eating out, and family activites and try visiting areas that have national parks where it is low costing or free to attend. Stay at hotels that offer continental breakfasts. Plan your family’s vacation onto paper and determine the exact costs of everything so your family will know how much is needed to be saved.
