    We loved the video!!! Good job to your team 🙂 my three year old insisted on making these after seeing this video. Luckily I had some pepperoni on hand, but no marinara. So we used basil pesto instead. It was amazing!!! thanks again!! Can’t wait for more kid friendly recipes.

    You guys did an amazing JOB!!!! Valechka, you’re kids are so adorable and cute! You are a very smart mama, bringing kids to the kitchen and helping them create their video. My daughter has been asking me to do that, but I don’t even have a blog. Anyway, that is awesome that you’re doing that. Also, that is a big job for kids, to talk correctly, look up and smile,and do everything right. You’re kids definitely succeeded! I really like how your older son asked for help and then praised his little sister. I like how simple and good this recipe is. I used to work for City Parks in our hometown and this was a very popular and requested item on the menu. Between the kids, this recipe was always a hit. I also like how you have individual slices, versus using half of an Italian bread. Keep up good work, you’re such an inspiration and doing awesome!
