Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day with a Papa Pizza

Posted By Jen On June 16, 2009 @ 4:00 am In Dinner | 30 Comments


Family Celebrations play a large part in my family tapestry, and there’s nothing we enjoy more than preparing those special foods that serve as the “icing on the cake” for family traditions.

Tomorrow pick and choose as I share my jam packed file full of tradition ideas for Father’s Day, but here’s a sneak peak that fits right in with our Tasty Tuesday Parade of Foods theme.

Why don’t you celebrate Dad this week by getting the family together for an interactive and fun cooking adventure? This is one pizza experience your family will never forget because you will name this the “Papa Pizza” to resemble that special man in your life.
Start by assembling the ingredients. Cut up green peppers for ears, mushrooms for a nose, pieces of sausages or olives for eyes, a pepperoni for the mouth and onions
for hair (if he still has any ;).
Use this homemade crust recipe, which is SO easy, [4]or buy a premade one for total simplicity.
Each family member will be in charge of placing a different face ingredient on the pizza.
When you finish your masterpiece, take a picture of everyone next to it.
He’ll never forget how you immortalized his cute mug in such a delicious way.

These are just a few various suggestions for the face – have fun letting the creative juices fly:
Eyes: olives, mushrooms, blueberries, pineapple rings or carrot strips
Nose: cherry tomato half, zucchini slice, mushroom, pineapple chunk, pepperoni or ham
Mouth: bell pepper slices, green beans, onion wedge or carrot strips
Hair: strips of ham, cauliflower or broccoli florets cut in small pieces

We have had a blast making this in the past and can’t wait to do it again. :)

Don’t have any pizza dough on hand? Try a fun variation by using English Muffins, and serve them for breakfast… in bed. :)
