Love Disney Pixar Ratatouille? Don’t miss Reel Mama’s ratatouille pizza recipe and Ratatouille movie review!
Besides Finding Nemo, the favorite Disney Pixar movie at our house is Ratatouille (pronounced, with an American accent, “Rat-uh-too-ee”). My daughter and I have probably watched it 25 times. What I love most is the adorable and clever way it introduces kids to a different culture: the movie takes place in Paris, and stars a rat named Remy who longs to cook gourmet French cuisine like humans.
Food and rats wouldn’t might not seem to mix, but somehow in the movie it works. I found a Ratatouille free activity sheet for kids on the official Disney Pixar Ratatouille website. You can download it with the following link:
It contains a fun game, plus a recipe for fun finger food for kids: pizza rats! If you have the stomach for it, your kids will love these animal pizza faces.
Kids will enjoy making them as much as eating them. All you have to do is cut English muffins into triangles, spread them with tomato sauce, use black olives for the eyes and nose, and sliced green onions for the pupils. Bake, then add toothpicks for whiskers.
Here is the full recipe:
- * Tomato sauce
- * English muffins
- * Black olives
- * Scallions (green onions)
- * Toothpicks
- * Low fat mozzarella string cheese
- Heat a toaster oven to 350 degrees. Using a pizza slicer, cut an English muffin half into a triangle. Spread a tablespoon of tomato sauce onto the wedges.
- Set round olive slices in place for eyes and a nose. Add round slices of green onion for pupils and lay strips of low fat mozzarella string cheese across the muffin for the rat's fur.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.
- Use toothpicks to make whiskers AFTER you remove them from the toaster oven.
