Homemade Pizza!

Looking for a fun and delicious activity to do with your kiddos that doesn’t take all day? Making quick and easy homemade pizzas is the perfect solution! Forget about baking from scratch—this guide will show you how to whip up some amazing pizzas using simple, store-bought ingredients. Plus, we’ve got some great bonus tips to make your pizza night extra special. 

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need for your quick and easy pizza-making session:

  • Pre-made Pizza Crusts: You can use store-bought pizza dough, flatbreads, pita bread, or even English muffins for mini pizzas.
  • Tomato Sauce: A jar of marinara or pizza sauce.
  • Cheese: Pre-shredded mozzarella is perfect, but feel free to mix in some cheddar, parmesan, or any other favorites.
  • Toppings: Go wild with pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, pineapple, ham, or anything else you love.

Step 2: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the pre-made pizza crust packaging. Usually, this is around 425°F (220°C).

Step 3: Sauce It Up

Place your pre-made pizza crusts on a baking sheet. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over each crust, leaving a little space around the edges for the crust. This step is super easy and fun for the kids to help with!

Step 4: Cheese, Please!

Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese over the sauce. Let the kids get involved and make sure every inch is covered in cheesy goodness.

Step 5: Get Creative with Toppings

Now comes the best part—adding the toppings! Encourage the kiddos to get creative. They can make fun patterns, faces, or even spell out their names with the toppings. Here are some fun topping ideas:

  • Pepperoni Smiles: Create smiley faces with pepperoni slices.
  • Veggie Rainbows: Use colorful bell peppers and onions to make rainbow designs.
  • Animal Faces: Use olives for eyes, a piece of pepperoni for a nose, and bell pepper strips for a mouth to make animal faces.

Step 6: Bake the Pizzas

Carefully place the baking sheet in the preheated oven. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Keep an eye on the pizzas to make sure they don’t overcook.

Step 7: Cool and Enjoy!

Once the pizzas are done, let them cool for a few minutes before slicing. This is the perfect time to admire your edible art! Gather around the table and enjoy the delicious pizzas you made together.

Bonus Tips for a Fun Pizza Night

To make your pizza night even more special, try incorporating some of these fun ideas:

Make It a Theme Night

Turn your pizza-making session into a themed night with decorations and matching activities. Here are a few theme ideas:

  • Italian Bistro: Decorate the dining area with checkered tablecloths, play some Italian music, and maybe even teach the kids a few Italian words.
  • Movie Night: Choose a favorite family movie and theme your pizzas around it. For example, make “Toy Story” pizzas with alien faces made from olives and pepperoni.
  • Superhero Night: Let each kid design a pizza based on their favorite superhero, complete with themed toppings and colors.

Pizza Taste Test

Make a variety of different pizzas and have a mini taste test to see which one is the family favorite. Create scorecards for each pizza and rate them on taste, creativity, and appearance. This is a fun way to try new topping combinations and get everyone’s input.

Personal Pizzas

Give each family member their own crust to create their personalized pizza masterpiece. This is a great way to cater to different tastes and dietary preferences. Plus, it’s fun for everyone to see the unique pizzas that others create.


Making quick and easy homemade pizzas is a fantastic way to bond with your kids and enjoy a delicious meal without spending hours in the kitchen. With these simple steps and fun bonus tips, your pizza night will be a memorable and enjoyable experience for the whole family. So gather your ingredients, get creative with your toppings, and enjoy a fun, easy pizza night together. Happy pizza-making!
