Kids love to play with food and this is a good party activity as it combines food and fun.

  1. Use ready-made pizza dough, either frozen or the pop-it-open kind. Enough for the number of kids.
  2. Or make pizza dough. One 12-inch dough recipe is good for about 8 kids. Make the dough until the second rise and then split it into smaller dough balls and stick it in the fridge until it’s time to use it.
  3. Provide the kids with a piece of parchment paper and have them press out a little pizza for themselves with the dough. Write their names in pencil on the edge of the parchment.
  4. Have them spoon pizza sauce out of a jar and spread it on their dough. They can spread it around with the back of the spoon.
  5. Have bowls with various kinds of pizza toppings for them to choose from.
  6. Bake in a pre-heated 450 F (230 C) oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese gets brown spots.
