While a paper pizza won't taste very good, making one can be a fun craft project to do with a youngster, and a way to make play food. Just don't let the little ones munch on the paper pizza when you're done. Use a second paper plate as the pizza plate when serving up the faux pizza. After you finish the project, throw a pizza party and see where your imagination takes you.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- 2 large white, round paper plates
- Yellow or brown acrylic paint
- Red acrylic paint
- White yarn
- White glue
- Green construction paper
- Red construction paper
- Hole puncher
Set a paper plate right side up. The top of the plate will be the top of the pizza.
Paint the rim of the plate with yellow or brown paint, for the crust of the pizza. Allow the paint to dry.
Paint the middle of the plate with red paint, for the pizza sauce. Allow the paint to dry.
Cut white yarn into ½-inch lengths and glue onto the red section as the pizza cheese. Apply by dipping a toothpick in the white glue and dabbing the glue on the plate or yarn. Add the faux cheese evenly to the red paint area, but don't completely cover the red paint.
Punch holes in green paper to make green peppers, and glue the circles onto the sauce and cheese portion.
Cut out 12 red circles that are slightly larger than a quarter. Apply glue to one side of a red circle and stick it onto the paper pizza. Repeat with the other red circles, spacing the circles evenly across the pizza.
Cut the paper pizza into 6 equal pieces after the glue thoroughly dries.
Set the pieces together to make a round pizza on a second paper plate. Have a "pizza" party and serve up the pieces to each "guest."
