Big Day French Bread Pizza


Kids and their families have a ton of fun celebrating birthdays in our cooking classroom at our Belleville farm. My daughter recently celebrated her 9th birthday during our Fun Thyme Cooking Birthday Party with 3 recipes – one of which was the Big Day French Bread Pizza. This recipe was the biggest hit. The girls had so much fun putting their own spin the topping selections! Our culinary staff taught the kids how to make 3 recipes in the first hour of the party. The second hour of the party was for eating and celebrating!

We host several birthday parties each weekend in the Eckert’s classroom, and kids ages 3-12 enjoy every minute of it! My favorite part of having my daughter’s party at Eckert’s was not having to host a party (and a mess) in my own house!

I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe, whether you are celebrating a birthday or just a fun day with family.

Eat well!
