These fun make your own pizzas are the perfect activity and meal for children to enjoy. They are easy to prepare and children love the ability to choose the exact toppings that they want. Choose an assortment of toppings to offer, any typical pizza toppings will work. The remaining crust can be used for stuffing or works great in a tossed salad with Italian dressing instead of croutons.

Ingredients

- olive oil
1/2 pound - pizza dough
8 ounces - prepared pizza sauce
3/4 pound - shredded mozzarella cheese
- Assorted toppings : small cubes of pepperoni
chopped onion
chopped black olives
chopped green bell pepper
chopped mushrooms
chopped carrots
chopped cooked (or thawed frozen) broccoli chopped pineapple
chopped cooked ham

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Heavily oil a large baking sheet. Roll and press the dough out on the baking sheet to form a thin layer of dough. Brush the dough liberally with olive oil. Bake in the hot oven for about five minutes, or until the dough is lightly browned. Cool until the crust is comfortable to handle. With a large tree shaped cookie cutter, cut as many tree shapes from the crust as you can. Place the trees on a large platter. Place the rest of the ingredients in individual bowls. Allow the children to spread the sauce on the pizza crusts and add any toppings that they desire. Sprinkle with the cheese. Place on lightly greased baking sheets and bake one sheet at a time until the crust is golden brown and the cheese bubbly, about 6 minutes.
