Soul Food Saturday #22

It's a special weekend at our house. Monkey will be turning 9 on Monday, and we are celebrating all weekend long! So of course Bekki couldn't have Soul Food Saturday without a little party for her favorite little guy!

Right here on Soul Food Saturday we are celebrating our favorite Monkey’s birthday! Yep, its here again! Can you believe it? It feels like we just celebrated him turning 8. Where has the time gone? It seems like just as fast as these pizzas bake, our Monkey is growing up before our eyes. I want to thank his sweet Mama for sharing him with us all, and giving me this opportunity to celebrate and create this party food for him.

Big love to you from California Alex! May God continue to bless you in every area of your life, keep your heart full of His everlasting love, and show you every moment that you are his beautiful child.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray; sprinkle with cornmeal. Set aside. Cut roll of dough into 2 equal pieces; shape each piece into a ball. Roll out ball of dough into a 10-inch round. Place the rounds on the prepared cookie sheet; brush each with oil. Bake 6 to 8 minutes.

Add thick sliced pepperoni, remaining half of crumbled sausage, sweet peppers, jalapeno and onions. Finally top with ½ c. cheese. Spread round with 2 tablespoons pizza sauce. Mix 1/2 cup Pizza blend cheese and 1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese; sprinkle half over pizza sauce.

Turbo Booster Punch
You can’t have a party without a great drink, so for this party I chose punch! Because Monkey loves it and so do I.

1 full cap of presweetened cherry Kool aid
64 oz. water
1 2 liter of 7up
Maraschino cherries
In a large pitcher or punch bowl add water, and kool aide mix. Stir to combine. Add pineapple juice and 7 up and mix to combine. Serve with ice, and garnish with maraschino cherries.
