We are going with a Lion King Movie Night. We are finally sitting down to compare the live action to the animated in our #Movienightfriday. We tend to put the film on just to have an excuse to make our Lion Pizza, aka Veggie Pizza, which is one of Matthew’s favorites. I know a kid who loves veggies is rare indeed.
Anyway, Lion King is timeless in many ways. My Disney Film History and theorist in me wants to turn this into a when Lion King was set but y’all will need to join The Disney Pixar Connection Facebook Group for that. Lion King was set in Kenya though.
Have fun making your own menu and enjoy the food.
- Cookie sheet or baking stone
- Rolling pin
- cutting board
- Pizza cutter
- 1 Pizza Dough store bought is fine
- 1 1/2 Cup Marinara sauce
- 2 cups Shredded Mozzerella
- 1/2 sliced pepper, Orange and Yellow are less bitter
- 1/4 Cup Spinach
- flour for rolling out dough
- Preheat the Oven to 400 Degrees
- Sprinkle the flour down on your counter and knead the dough into a circle. Using your rolling pin roll out the dough while keeping the circle shape (unless you are doing a Sicilian Pizza) quarter turn your dough to keep the shape. Make sure to spread it as thin as possible withour tearing it.
- Place the dough on to the cookie sheet or pizza stone.
- Pinch the edges to form a crust. For a thicker crust you will pinch more while a thin crust will be less of a pinch.
- Using your spoon, spread the marinara sauce evenly up to the crust
- Spread the Mozzerella cheese in an even layer over the marinara sauce
- Cut your 1/2 pepper into strips and lay it down in any pattern you want. We make it look like a Lions whiskers
- Cover the pizza with the spinach
- Bake for 15 minutes
- Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing into it
