Here is a great fun activity for the birthday party. It is both entertaining and it will help you with your food preparation. Have a “Build Your Own Pizza Party”

Before the party you will need to have pizza dough and all the ingredients that your guests may want to put on their own personal pizza. Also you will want to have some parchment paper to build their pizzas on.

The pizza dough can be store bought or made from scratch. Have the dough separated into little balls. Have enough to cover for the amount of guests who will be there.

Have all your meats, veggies, cheese, sauce all cut up the day before the party so it is not another thing to do on the day of the party. Cover them up with plastic wrap so they stay fresh and place in the refrigerator.

On the day of the party your guests will each get a ball of pizza dough that they will flatten, press and stretch into a flat crust. Then they put some sauce on the crust.

Finally, they will build a pizza from all the items that they could possibly want. Bake the pizza pies following the directions from the recipe or container the dough came in.

All that is left is to enjoy the tasty pizzas and continue to have fun with your guests. But, what do you do while you are waiting for it to bake? That’s where I come in.

A fun 45 minute magic show while it is baking is an excellent idea. Right after the magic show, the pizzas should be all baked, cooled down a bit and ready to be eaten.

Of course, if you are not from Northeast Wisconsin you will need to look up a fun magician from your area. Do a Google or Bing search to locate one in your neck of the woods.
