Build your own Pizza – Pizza Party

Pizza and soda are typically the main course at birthday parties these days. It’s easy and everyone likes pizza. But next time your planning the birthday scene consider letting your little guest make their own pizza. We have a great way for you to serve up the traditional favorite birthday dish in a very fun way. This also gives the kids one more thing to keep them busy at the party.

Build your own pizza buffet, set up a big table covered in red and white checkers with bowls of the goodies listed below. Give each child a pie pan with the dough placed in the pan and ready to go, it’s much easier than going around collecting un-cooked pizzas after they are done.

Then let the kids start building, cook the pizza according to the bread directions on the package. (tip: make sure you grease the pans before placing the pizza dough on them)
