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.

    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.
