Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

Hello and Happy Sunday! As you might have figured out, I love cherries and recently heard about a Whole Foods recipe contest using them! I’m totally on board with this (as long as I don’t eat them all first).IMG 5625 600x800 thumb1 Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

The recipe is supposed to be kid friendly so I immediately brainstormed a pizza, but cherries instead of pepperoni – hence the name “Cherreroni” Pizzas.IMG 6088 800x533 thumb Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

Enjoy! IMG 6123 800x533 thumb Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

After our kid friendly breakfast Matt and I headed to Costco for some essentials (read: watermelon and cheesecake). I wish this life sized bear was an essential, but there’s not room in the budget. Boo.IMG 6163 600x800 thumb Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

But to my horror, Costco didn’t have any watermelon?!?!?!!? I know. IMG 6169 600x800 thumb Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

So I’m trying to talk myself down now. I’ll see ya later wlEmoticon smile12 Cherreroni Yogurt PizzaIMG 6168 600x800 thumb Cherreroni Yogurt Pizza

    This is a great recipe! I need to bookmark this for when my nieces come to visit. thanks for sharing! And how in the world did Costco didn’t have watermelon?! That is just un-American, especially in the summer.

    no watermelon at costco – bastards! shouldn’t costco’s watermelon be the biggest watermelon ever. and shouldn’t it come in packs of 20? that would be my heaven.

    I like cherries because they’re easily visable in poop. If I have to wipe a kid’s butt it better have something funny in it -like black frosting makes poop blue. It’s the little things in parenting that make the world go round — give me fun poop please!

    -take a shot every time I say “POOP”

    yummm healthy pizza..that means I can jump on the overeating train. yayy!!
    Also I can’t believe I’ve never mentioned this..but your little brother Matt looks like like my little brother. With the last name Gomez, I get a lot of weird looks because of my blonde hair and blue eyes and pasty white skin, especially when I with my younger sibs who have dark hair, brown eyes and the skin of greek gods…sh*t happens.
    hahah
