If your kids are enjoying the Angry Birds craze, you’re not alone! Feeling inspired, the boys and I made Angry Birds pizzas a week ago. I have been limiting Elijah’s playing of the game lately because it seems to make him, well, a bit angry. But when I proposed this pizza idea he was one excited boy.
I sketched out my idea on paper and we went to work on the real red angry bird. It was so cute! And of course it was as delicious, as pizza typically is.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Divide the pizza dough in half. Dust a flat surface with flour and use a rolling pin to roll out two 12-inch circles, setting aside a small handful of dough for the bird “feathers.”
Form/roll the extra dough into four 2×1-inch ovals. Press 2 ovals onto the top side of each circle to create the “feathers.”
Use the back of a spoon to spread 1/8 cup of olive oil onto each pizza.
Spread 1/2 cup of pizza sauce over top of each pizza.
Spread 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese over each pizza, covering completely.
You will need approximately 30 pepperoni slices for each pizza. With a scissors, cut 14 (total) of them in half. With the halved pepperoni slices, form a curved line toward the bottom two-thirds of each pizza.
Form a rectangle for the eyes with the straight edges of the pepperoni halves.
Fill in the rest of the upper portion of the pizzas with the remaining pepperoni slices.
Cut 2 large, curved triangles out of 2 slices of cheddar cheese. Cut 2 small rectangles out of a third slice.
Place a cheese triangle below the “eyes” on each pizza and a rectangle under each of those to form the bottom “beak.”
Using approximately 1/4 cup of sliced black olives, place black olives in the center of the “eyes” and line the rest above the eyes to form angry eyebrows.
Bake the pizzas in the preheated oven for 17 minutes, or until the crusts are lightly browned.
