Oh man. School is in session. My babies are in school. And I am fuh-reeeeeaking out. Seriously! Afton is in full day Kindergarten and Delaney is in Pre-K and Vivienne is in Preschool. So much madness, I swear. Also, I had developed this really bad habit of going to bed between 2 and 3 am, which is not conducive to a 6am wakeup. To say I feel like a zombie would be an understatement. Pretty sure I scared other, smaller children today. But on that note, it’s a celebration, cause yay school! The kids have been anxiously awaiting this day for a long time now, and what better way to get in some fun together time than to make a big batch of mini taco pizzas and enjoy some after school snacks!
I had originally planned on making this awesome mini casserole dish using some Bagel Bites and Delimex, but my test batches just did not come out the way I wanted them too, which was sad, but that’s life. But in the meantime, I had this flash of genius, because growing up, I would always go eat this amazing taco pizza from a local pizza joint in my hometown. It was so delicious, and honestly, I would never get a taco pizza from anywhere else. I thought, how cool would it be to make something like that for the girls? Share a bit of my childhood with them?! So I set out to make something worthy of my memories, and man, did I ever nail it.
You are going to love these. Mini Taco Pizzas and after school snacks FTW!
Don’t tell Rudy I included this photo, please? Ha ha ha, it was just too good to pass up.
Mini Taco Pizzas

- Top each Bagel Bite with a spoonful of meat, then drizzle with a tsp. of taco sauce before adding a pinch of shredded lettuce, cheese, and tomato.
- Garnish with sliced avocado and serve warm.
I served up my mini taco pizzas with a side of delicious Delimex, and the kids quickly annihilated their snack, because busy, learning bodies need good fuel! And I love that Bagel Bites is made with real cheese and homemade sauce. Plus it contains 0 grams trans fat. Hello awesome? Grab some coupons for Bagel Bites and Delimex and then head on over to Walmart and get some for yourself!
