Hey y’all! Who’s kids loves pizza? I am so glad I can finally be apart of that club. If you follow me on Instagram, you know my kids are PICKY! They hate everything, including all kids’ foods. Pizza finally made the cut a few months ago.
Now that they love pizza, I thought it would be fun to host a make your pizza play date for my play group.
Here is what you will need throw a fun, simple, and cheap pizza party.
- Paper plates
- Pizza sauce
- Toppings you’re providing
- Containers for toppings
- English muffins
- Baking sheets with foil
When I throw play dates like this, I usually request for the moms to help out and bring other items we might need. For this get together you can see from the list above, I provided the basics. My friends bought addition toppings and a salad.
Real quick, can we talk about how brilliant my friend was for suggesting English muffins for the pizza crust?!? Way cheaper than buying mini pizza crusts.
I did pick up a couple of items not listed above that aren’t necessarily needed. I also grabbed some juice and two large pizza crusts for the moms.
Before all the kids arrived I cleaned up our outdoor table, prepped baking sheets with foil, and put on some Disney music. I also toasted the English muffins. That way they wouldn’t get all soggy from the pizza sauce. I just popped them in the toaster, but next time I’ll definitely just throw them in the oven for a few minutes.
When the moms arrived with their items I just placed them on the table.
Time To Get Our Pizza On!
We let the kids play for about an hour, and work up an appetite before getting started.
Once the demands for snacks became more frequent, I went in and preheated the oven. I think I set the temp to 375.
The kids loved making their pizzas. It’s so crazy having Sadie participate. Last year she was hanging out in pop up pack and play.
Sadie was a huge fan of the cheese as you can tell. Bentley was a pro at spreading the pizza sauce. Look at that perfect coverage. If you’re wondering were JJ was, he was at school.
Once the kids were done we placed them on the baking sheet with foil. I provided a marker for the moms to write their kids names by their pizzas.
Then I just popped them into the oven until the cheese melted. I think it took about 10 minutes. Of course none of the kids were hungry by the time the pizzas were done. They were all taste testing during the making of the pizzas. But whatever, at least they ate.
That’s it! Us moms made a pizza once they were done, and enjoyed a semi relaxing lunch together. I forgot to take a picture of our delicious pizza. Trust me it was good!
If you give this a try, tag me in the photos. I would love to see your play date.
Don’t forget to pin this for later!
