Before you scoff - I have tried this and it is yummy! You read that correctly: yummy. A couple of notes from my experience with making cheeseburger pizza: add toppings according to your preferences, and there is not an overwhelming mustard flavor to the pizza. The mustard and ketchup combine nicely to make a sweet sauce. Please let us know what your kiddos think of this American cuisine mashup!

You can introduce your kiddos to the mathematics of cooking with the numerous weights and measures in this recipe. While the pizza is baking, be sure to grab your measuring spoons, glass measuring cup, and have them practice the following conversions with water:
2/3 cup = 10 Tbsp + 2 tsp
2 Tbsp = 1/8 cup
2 Tbsp = 6 tsp
1 cup = 16 Tbsp
1 cup = 8 oz
1/2 cup = 8 Tbsp
1/2 cup = 4 oz
