Buffalo Chicken and Spinach Pizzas - the kids and I use up those leftovers!

This is my nine year old son's hungry mouth.
I had leftovers from our pizza night (including crust because I did not pay attention to the fact that they came two to a package, so I had double what I needed) plus leftover ingredients from my buffalo chicken dip from last night.

My five year old daughter helped me (the little hands are hers) and my nine year old son was our photographer.

I made a white spinach pizza and a buffalo chicken one (plus some more heart attack pizza:) I've never made a white pizza and didn't have much time so I took a couple of spoonfuls of smart balance butter, some crushed garlic and some shredded Italian cheese blend and melted in the microwave, mixed it and spread on the pizza, proved to be quite tasty.

Topped with some mozzarella, spinach and light sprinkle of nutmeg

Added a little shredded Italian blend cheese to finish it off

For the buffalo chicken I started with light ranch and spread it over the crust

We topped it with shredded chicken in Frank's hot sauce. Mmmmm

Topped with shredded mozzarella

Baked at 425, about ten minute, just kept checking them

Finished products, a delicious lunch and quality time with my kids (minus my seven year old who was too busy too cook this time)

Thanks. That's so funny, I had seen some things on your blog (can't remember what though) and wondered if we were near each other:)
