In an effort to keep my kids entertained this summer we’ve been trying new recipes for lunch time. Silly Pizza Faces have been a hit with my kids.
If you are struggling to keep your kids busy I would definitely add this recipe to my summer lunch rotation!
This is a recipe that I’m sure we will make an at least bi-weekly tradition until school starts up again!

Silly Pizza Faces
Seriously, these mini pizza cuties took us less than 30 minutes to make. We had a lot of fun sending pictures of the different faces we made to dad while he was at work.
Our pizzas turned out delicious! My kids were too distracted by the silly faces to notice that they were eating mushrooms and bell peppers.
Great recipe for picky eaters? I definitely think so!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Shredded Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese (My kids love having fresh Parmesan on top of their pizzas when they eat them)
- Vegetables- We used pre-sliced mushrooms and bell peppers, but you could use an assortment of veggies from broccoli, cauliflower, sliced red onions, and peppers.
- Sliced pepperonis, ham, or pieces of cooked chicken
- Pineapple (Optional)
- Sliced Olives
- Pizza Sauce or Alfredo Sauce (I bet you could make some pretty cute faces with chicken, broccoli, and an alfredo sauce.)
- English Muffins
Here’s What to do:
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
- Lay out your English muffins on the pan. You’ll want the inside half facing up
- Use a pastry brush to spread pizza sauce onto each English muffin
- Sprinkle shredded mozzarella onto each pizza slice
- Put your ingredients into bowls, baggies, or containers on the table. This way your kids can see what they can use for their faces.
- Have your kids arrange different faces on the pizza slices. Get creative with mustaches, eyes, noses, ears, smiles, eyebrows, hair, and teeth. You can use any of your ingredients to create different facial features.
- Bake your pizzas at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is nice and melty
- Let the pizzas cool for a few minutes before serving
- Your kids can get creative with parmesan cheese afterward adding hair or a beard to the pizzas with cheese.
I’m so excited to try our next batch of Silly Pizza Faces with Alfredo sauce, chicken, and broccoli. Now that I think of it a BBQ Chicken Silly Pizza Face sounds yummy too.
Don’t you love how making foods fun can make even the pickiest eater try new foods?
