Ingredients

  • Basic Pizza Dough
  • Flour
  • Cornmeal
  • Basic Pizza Sauce
  • Grated parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese
  • Blanched broccoli spears
  • Sliced cooked sausage
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Pepperoni
  • Pepper pieces
  • Sliced provolone
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Anchovies
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Roasted peppers
  • Sliced ham or cubes
  • Black olives
Tip: If you'd prefer not to make your own dough, you can substitute pizza dough from the supermarket or your local pizza parlor. Cut up extra green and red peppers so kids can munch while they're waiting for the pizzas to cook!

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 500°F.

  2. Step 2

    Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece on a clean surface, with a bit of flour if necessary, to a 6-inch circle. Kids will love to do this too. They may want to work with a small piece of dough to make a super mini pizza. If you don't want to make your own dough, you can substitute pizza dough from the supermarket or your local pizza parlor.

  3. Step 3

    Sprinkle 2 sheet pans lightly with cornmeal. Place the dough disks on the prepared sheet pans.

  4. Step 4

    Show kids how to top each dough disk with about 3 tablespoons pizza sauce in a thin layer about 3/4 inch from the edge. You can both sprinkle a small amount of the grated cheese on top and arrange any pizza toppers to make a funny face: broccoli or sausage for hair, mushroom nose, pepperoni eyes, black olive pupils. Add more cheese on top to help secure the toppings.

  5. Step 5

    Place sheet pans in oven and bake until pizza is golden and bubbly; 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack or a cutting board and cool slightly. Repeat with the remaining pizzas.

Tip: Have kids help you put the toppings into small bowls before you get started. As soon as you're done rolling out the dough, you'll be ready to get creative! While you're setting up, cut up extra green and red peppers so kids can munch while they're waiting for the pizzas to cook.
