Make Your Own Mickey Pizza!


Today Julianne, from Misadventures of a Momma, is sharing with us how to make a Mickey-shaped Pizza! This pizza is sure to give big thrills in your Disney-loving family! Let us know if you give it a try. Thanks for sharing your pizza with us, Julianne! ~Terri


What better way to prepare for your family’s FIRST Walt Disney World trip? Create plenty of crafts, goodies, and gifts! Our family recently went to WDW during the week of Thanksgiving 2012.  For many in our party of 10 it was the first trip. (For others of us, it was our first trip in a LOOOONNNNGGGG time.) Since this was the case I wanted to make sure I could do everything in my power to make all sorts of goodies for everyone in our group. Starting in April, I created everything from small backpacks & autograph books to camera straps, pillow cases, and t-shirts. Many of these projects were secret (and so hard to keep hidden), but many of them were also intended to be completed with the children of the family.

Our biggest and easiest time of preparation and celebration were Disney-themed movie nights. Many of these nights we would be 1-3 movies to watch and make some sort of food goodie. We soon found that our favorite was Mickey Mouse Pizza. These consistently morphed into different designs every time we created them. Our most recent pizza was completed the Saturday before our trip. We had decided to do a huge sleep over at Grandma’s house. We would bake Mickey Sugar Cookies (yummy…but scary looking. All part of my “Ugly as Sin Bakery” idea I have.), watch Disney movies (Brave had just been released on DVD), and bake Mickey Mouse Pizza. This ended up being one of our favorite preparation nights.  

As a fellow Disney lover I wanted to share our steps to prepare this yummy Mickey Mouse Pizza.

Step One:  Gather Ingredients
  • Premade pizza crust dough. (Pillsbury has some good dough, but to save money I usually go with the store brand which is just as yummy.)
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Cheese (I use one with a lot of variety.)
  • Toppings: I have listed our typical toppings below, but you could put anything you want on your pizza.
    • Pepperoni
    • Black olives
    • Green olives
    • Mushrooms
Step Two: Pizza Prep.
To make a Mickey Mouse-Shaped Pizza you will need two cans of the pizza dough.  After removing the wrapping from your pizza dough, do not unroll it! You will take the first roll and cut it in half.  This will allow you to then unroll the dough and shape each half into small circles. These will be the ears of your pizza.  You can then unroll your second can of dough.  Shape this can into a larger circle. To attach your “ears” simply place them on the pan next to the “head” and pinch the dough of the ear with the dough of the head.  

Part of your preparation will also consist of having all of your ingredients accessible and easy for little hands to get to. You will also want to slice your olives if you did not purchase them pre-sliced.

Step Three: Make the pizza.
After you have created the Mickey Mouse-shaped pizza dough and prepared your other ingredients, it is time to put it all together.  

  1. Cover dough in sauce. You can use as much or as little as you would like. (I’m not much of a sauce person so I use enough to lightly cover dough and allow the other ingredients to stick.)
  2. Evenly spread cheese over entire pizza.
  3. Add Pepperoni.
  4. Add other ingredients.
  5. Place in oven to cook. I determine my temperature based on the instructions for the prepackaged pizza dough.
  6. Let cook.  This will usually take 15-20 minutes.  

Step Four: EAT!
This is the part where you can enjoy the yummy pizza and all of your hard work.  Enjoy!

This is our yummy Mickey Mouse pizza before it went into the oven.  We were too hungry to take a picture of the cooked pizza before we ate it.

Happy cooking!
