Kid Friendly Pizza Canapes

These snazzy snacks are the perfect 'sophisticated' treat for children. Plus, it's easy for kids to help make – and customize!

Finger foods are kid favorites. So, for your little princess or superstar, why not turn them into something a bit more "sophisticated"? Break out the cocktail napkins and serving platters – it's time for canapes!

Remember these snacks? The term was popular in the '70s, but it's really just a fancy word for appetizers served during the "cocktail hour." Usually, they featured a small, toasted piece of bread topped with a snazzy spread and a garnish.

Canapes are simple to make – so kids can easily help out. Plus, after they're finished, kids can invite friends over and host an all-out canape party. (Totally "grownup!")

Check out our simple pizza canape recipe. For a different alternative, try a cold salad canape (simply go with crustless toasted bread quarters and your favorite tuna, egg or chicken salad; top with a pickle slice or dill spring) – or classic PB&J.
