This has to be the ultimate kids favorite dish from The Real Food Academy. We have probably made thousands of them in our kids classes. Pizza on a Stick its not only fun to make but can promote team work among kids, use of the motor skills, creativity and a way to try a new vegetable as a topping since its not visible as the traditional pizza.
