Let me set up the story first and then I’ll explain the pizza prank. Back when we only had three kids we used to frequently do homemade pizza nights. We would spread out the dough and pizza sauce and then divide the pizza into sections using cheese for lines.
Each person would create their own unique section with the toppings of their choice.
The kids loved the book and we had fun talking about what happened to Pete in the story. Bethany decided it would be fun for the kids to make paper pizzas out of construction paper. This is where the idea for the prank evolved.
Then we put the pizzas in the oven while it was still turned off. We told the kids they needed to take baths and get ready for bed while the pizzas baked. While they were busy getting ready for bed we replaced the pizzas in the oven with Tostino’s Pizzas and hid the paper pizzas.
This was only the beginning of the practical joke. When we finished eating I cut up the left over pizza into slices and placed the slices into plastic baggies. The girls watched me put them in the fridge and then we proceeded to clean up the kitchen. When they weren’t looking I replaced the real pizza slices with the paper pizza slices.
She kept saying “That’s impossible!” “How did this happen!” “I just can’t figure it out!” (I’m still not sure why they thought paper pizzas turning into real pizza was not that unusual but changing back into paper was a real miracle)
If you try it yourself please leave a reply and tell us how it goes!
