I’m pretty obsessed with pizza night, as you may or may not have noticed. It’s something the entire family looks forward to, both for the homemade pizza and movie! It’s a fun weekly tradition. We try to pick out a new kids/family friendly movie each week, but occasionally there are some repeats. It happens! We have our favorites we happily watch again and again. I may or may not be totally okay with watching Frozen still. I only hope the second is just as good!

This past week we had the pleasure of watching Big Hero 6. I really wasn’t sure what to expect of it, but it turned out to be such a great movie. If you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, I highly recommend it! Perfect for kids and adults. It’s funny, action packed and full of touching moments too!

Have you seen any great kids movies lately – new or old? I’m always looking for recommendations!

Last week I couldn’t resist the chance to play around with our pizza toppings again. This time, reinventing a classic sandwich! Now, this might not be exactly how everyone likes their sandwiches, but it’s the general idea behind it. Meat, cheese, veggies…perfection! And a hint of heat and garlic!

A thin crust cheesesteak pizza with a white olive oil and garlic sauce, topped off with shaved steak, peppers, onions and three varieties of cheese! An absolute must make for your next pizza night!

    I didn’t realize they were already on the 6th series of big hero?! Maybe it’s cause I don’t have kids and don’t realize when these movies come out. LOVE this cheesesteak PIZZA instead of a sandwich!!

    • Rachel — March 30th, 2015 @ 6:32 pm

      It’s based off of a comic book series, but this is only the first movie. The 6 stands for the number of heroes in the movie. You should watch it sometime! :)

    I loved Big Hero 6. My boyfriend and I watched it last weekend and it provided a lot of laughs. :) This cheesesteak pizza looks great. I don’t eat red meat, but I could sub in some chicken on mine!

    • Rachel — March 30th, 2015 @ 6:32 pm

      Chicken would be a perfect substitution! :)

    What a great idea for pizza toppings! I need to get back to making pizza at home instead of always getting take-out. This looks like such a delicious version! Big Hero 6 was really cute, And these are old, but we love the Despicable Me movies, so funny for adults and kids too.

    • Rachel — March 30th, 2015 @ 6:34 pm

      So much better than take-out! Definitely give it a try sometime. :)
