Family Quilt Pizza

I find quilt pizzas loads of fun to make. They're great for getting family and friends involved and they come up with the most clever toppings and designs! —Marie Louise Ludwig, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

    What fun! Makes a wonderfully attractive "personal" pizza. It's also easy enough to substitute home-made pizza dough for the refrigerated kind or substitute green or red pepper slices for the ham boundary markers if there are vegetarians in the crowd...

    Reminds me of Mother's Quilts. Fun to make. Good to eat.

    I haven't made this pizza yet. But with two finicky granddaughters that will only eat noodles lately, I just know this will be a hit especially if they prepare it themselves. My daughter will make the dough and I'll have the ingredients ready. Veggies they like and a few they are on the fence about. Good idea to get them to eat foods that are nutritious.
