This post and recipe is brought to you today by the letter B.
B as in Bennett.
Bennett is my 7 1/2 year old, my oldest. He is in 2nd grade. This past summer we spent together in the kitchen, cooking. He loved it. We made all sorts of yummy food. Some he helped me with. Some he did on his own. So, it is with pride that I share Bennett's Ladybug Pizzas with you today. He made them all.by.himself. I sat in the living room reading a magazine. Seriously. I could totally get used to someone else cooking dinner. And, I didn't notice it until I was taking the picture later that Bennett actually made these pizzas look like ladybugs. I would have just tossed the olives and tomatoes together. But he made them look cute.
What a cute kid!
Will you forgive me if I just tell you how to make these? You don't really need measurements, do you? Good. I knew that you would be ok!

English muffins, split in half

Preheat oven to 350. Place split English muffins on a baking sheet. Spread each half with pesto. Top with a bit of mozzarella cheese. Place 3 tomato slices and a couple slices of black olives on each muffin. Top again with some mozzarella cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and slightly browned.
