Mac and Cheese Pizza with Tillamook
This post is sponsored by Tillamook, but like always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I have a toddler and we eat really healthy, but there are just days when I want to indulge with my kids and bake cupcakes and eat pizza. Those are usually fun weekend meals that we not only eat together, but my oldest son and I will actually make together.
One of our favorite fun family meals that every kid will love is my Mac and cheese pizza. Toddler dream meal and being from the south Mac and cheese is a basic staple!
It's super easy to make and taste so good especially when you use our favorite Tillamook Cheese for the recipe! We love the sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use their medium cheddar and it'll still taste very cheesy.
