Pizza Bread House -

Monkey and I have so much fun with our gingerbread house that this year I thought we’d try a new variation: a Pizza Bread house!  It was a nice change from all the sweets that usually characterize the holidays, plus what kid doesn’t like pizza?

You will need:

Your favorite pizza dough recipe (or pre-made)

Cream cheese (approx. 4 oz)

Pizza sauce

Toppings (we used pretzels and chopped zucchini, green and red peppers)

Grated Parmesan cheese for snow (from a can is best!)

Wrong place, wrong time, Caterpillar!


Shape the pizza dough into 6 pieces (2 long walls, 2 short walls, 2 roof pieces) then cook according to package directions.

While the pizza is cooking, mix the cream cheese with a few spoonfuls of the pizza sauce.  Be careful not to add too much or the mixture will be too runny.  You just want to add a little pizza flavor; the color will only change slightly.  Scoop mixture into a clean plastic bag and snip off one corner

After the pizza bread has cooled, use a serrated knife to trim to the correct sizes and make smooth edges.  It’s important that the sides line up properly so the house doesn’t fall over.

On a clean plate or platter, build your pizza bread house.  Use the cream cheese mixture as the “glue” to hold the walls and roof together and to hold on the decorations (toppings).  Let your child’s imagination guide you!

 Those of you that saw the fate of our gingerbread house will not be surprised to discover that the same ill winds eventually engulfed our pizza bread house – but only after much fun was had – and lots of munching followed!

  1. This is a great idea!! I love your alternative gingerbread houses!

  2. What a great idea! Will definitely do that project. We don’t do dairy, but perhaps one of my homemade cheese spreads made from chickpeas will do the trick
