Quilt pizza is an exciting and easy way to get all your guests involved. It becomes an activity in and of itself. First, get a ton of toppings: vegetables, meats, even some pineapple--whatever you like--and pile each one into separate bowls. Next, buy some refrigerated pizza dough from the grocery store or your local pizzeria and stretch it over the backside of a baking sheet. Then place everything out on a table and let the kids (or adults) go crazy. Everyone gets a square on the dough to design his or her own patch of pizza.



Suggested Toppings:


  1. For the pizza: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease the backside of a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil and stretch the pizza dough over it (about 16 by 11 inches).
  3. Spread the pizza sauce on the dough and sprinkle the cheese on top.
  4. Divide the pizza into 8 to 12 squares, by lightly scoring the dough with a knife. “Decorate” each square with the suggested toppings.
  5. Brush the edges of the pizza with olive oil and bake until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
