Step 1. Get kid from his afternoon nap. Because he is fussy, promise him that he can help make dinner.
Step 2. Slap a crust on a pizza stone. Add pizza sauce, and let toddler run fingers through the red goodness until he starts slapping hand on the pie.
Step 3. Provide cheese for sprinkling. Raise eyebrows but make no comment when lots of cheese falls to the floor.
Step 4. Place pepperoni yourself. Meanwhile, child attempts cheese clean-up, creating even bigger mess.
Step 5. Ask kid to distribute sausage evenly on the pizza. Nod expectantly when 100% of the sausage is dumped directly in the center. Clean cheese off floor.
Step 6. Pretend not to notice when toddler eats several pepperoni slices.
Step 7. Repeat 5 with sliced mushrooms.
Step 8. Allow kid to go to town with italian seasoning. Lots of praise for job well done.
Step 9. Bake appropriately. Make kid stand far away when pizza comes out of oven; promise use of oven mitts as compensation.
Step 10. Serve pizza pie for dinner. Give husband over-seasoned slices with no explanation. Smile.
