This healthy pizza dough recipe is a new twist on your traditional recipe using Gerber® MultiGrain cereal.
Look no farther for a simple way to add more nutrients to your pizza dough with Gerber Cereal. Simply add in baby food. You read that right, mix in baby cereal to get all the nutritional elements you need.
This pizza crust is so easy to make and only uses a few ingredients. I loved the texture the crust had and you could very easily load up the veggies on the toppings. We go for a more traditional pizza in our home but I love that I can get more nutrients into my children!
My kids are ages 4, 7, and 14 so we are definitely out of the baby food stage but you can cook with Nestle Gerber. have a look at the rice pudding recipe that I made using baby yogurt. My whole family enjoyed the creamy addition of the yogurt.

This really was a delicious twist on a favorite recipe in our home. There are four varieties of Gerber Cereal that are available at Walmart: Oatmeal Cereal Single-Grain, Multigrain Cereal, Oatmeal & Banana Cereal and Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry that are available at Walmart. These are not just for baby food but are great recipe substitutes.
