Pete's father starts kneading the dough. Next, some oil is generously applied. (Its really water.) And then some tomatoes. (They're really checkers.) When the dough gets tickled, it laughs like crazy.

Talk about Pete's a Pizza

I read this to my daughter when she was younger as I was pretending to make a pizza out of her. She giggled and laughed as I rolled her around and sprinkled paper pepperoni circles on her. She now reads it to her babysitting kids and they love it. I bought this copy for my friends grandchild. I am sure they will enjoy it too.
My son loves this book! Every night, he wants my husband to make him a "pizza" after bathtime. It's adorable!
This is often the first book I read to my upper elementary student children. Many have not been read to or for some other reason do not know the JOY and FUN of a good book.

We act this one out. From getting their muscles "kneaded" and arms "stretched" like dough. I get their permission first. Sigh... that is the decade we are living in.

We "shake" flour (really a salt shaker.) And sprinkle oil (in a firmly sealed vial.)

We whirl and twirl a stuffed animal in the air. Next the checkers (pepperoni)

Then the children "cook" in the oven. (actually under a desk.)

This is one book the children ask for and moan when I tell them it is at my other school.

It makes believers of them that books are exciting.

An added note: this is a book that is asked for by my students over and over. They truly find this book fun and exciting.

Scholastic has a DVD based on the book which is a clever animation of the book. You can find this on Amazon also.
My kids all love this book. It's a tradition to lay the kids down, and act out the book while reading it. Their beds are the "oven" and they like to hide during the "run away" section. I've probably read the book now a few hundred times. :-) I bought a hard cover copy of the book for each of them when they grown up, in case it goes out of print.
Such a cute book, my girls love it!
Perhaps one of the silliest books we’ve ever read! My kids LOVE this book. We pretend to make each other into pizzas too.
My 3 year old LOVES this book!!
Cute book to keep child amused for a short time on a rainy day.
