What should we have for dinner on New Year's Eve?
Our favorite meal is New Year's pizza! We make it together and it's so much fun! It is awesome to do with family or some friends on New Year's Eve too.
A few years ago we started the tradition of making special New Year's Pizza on New Year's Eve and now the kids ask for it every year!
Why make pizza with kids on New Year's Eve?
I love New Year's pizza for three reasons:
- It's low prep and easy!
- Almost everyone likes pizza and can adapt it to work for them.
- It's a fun meal that kids can help make.
