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, 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. 🙂
These pizzas are awesome. I want to see some dad be macho when presented with one of these. It'll bring out the kid in them!
Such cute pizzas!
Those are hysterical and wonderful! What a great idea!
Those are SO FUNNY!!!! I have not been around in awhile! I miss your food posts!
I have had all day MORNING SICKNESS – Whoo hoo! #3!
Fabulous idea! So cute.
Too fun! We make birthday pizzas, designing the birthday honoree's age on the pie, but I've not done this one. Cute!
How fun! You have to smile.
Awesome idea Jen! Thanks! I've been struggling to come up with creative ideas for Father's Day. I know my kids would LOVE putting a pizza like that together, and my hubby would be thrilled.
I can't wait to see all of your ideas tomorrow too!!
That is a GREAT idea! I know Kiddo and Sound Man would have as much fun as I would doing that! I've been trying to figure out what to do for Father's Day, and I think this might make the cut! : )
That is so cute Jen! My 2 year old and my husband enjoy making pizza together. If my husband was going to be with us for Fathers day I would SO do that pizza with/for him! Such a cool idea 🙂
That looks like so much fun, my four boys would love it!
I just grilled my first pizzas last weekend, but with a ready made crust, and voila now I just found the recipe for a homemade one. Thanks so much!
I LOVE that idea! Sounds like the perfect thing to go make for my father-in-law!
What a cute idea! I love how those pizzas turned out!
So cute and such fun for the kids!
All Things Heart and HOme

funny pizzas! Our favorite pizzas are the California grilled pizzas from the Barefoot Contessa show on FoodNetwork. Yum!
Hey, Jen! I'm stretching today's Tasty Tues. with my homegrown tomato sandwich post.
When my kids were small they loved those English Muffin pizzas!
Yeah! I'm so excited that I can read your blog and link up today. I'm going to install Firefox so I won't be shut down again! 🙂
The pizzas look darling… must try them!
Have a great day… Jennifer
I left a linky…twice! I'm such a dweeb I forgot to put in what my recipe was the first time! : )
