Shape Collage Pizzas

Shape Collage Pizzas


Kids can make shape collage pizza art out of pieces of construction paper.

From the Author

My students LOVED this project! Most kids love pizza so it is a sure hit! It makes everyone hungry!


Students will:

  • Review shapes and learn about shapes.
  • Improve their cutting skills by cutting shapes.
  • Improve their gluing skills by using the dot by dot method.
  • Learn about collage by creating the cut paper pizza and by using overlapping.
  • Learn about Pop Art and how artists created art that was food like Claes Oldenburg.

What You Need:

  • 9×12 yellow or light brown construction paper
  • crayons
  • paper scraps for “shape” toppings (green, red, brown, black, and white)
  • circle pattern for pizza shape [click here for circle]
  • scissors
  • glue

What You Do:

  1. Ask students what shape most pizzas are. Students will trace a circle on brown or yellow construction paper and cut it out.
  2. Students color the “sauce” with red crayon leaving the edge of the “crust” showing.
  3. Ask students what shape or line shredded cheese is? Students will cut out thin white rectangles for cheese and glue and overlap them on the pizza.
  4. Demonstrate different topping shapes and question what shapes they are. (Pepperoni slices are red circles, mushrooms are brown semi-circles, sausages are brown ovals, olives are black circles, green peppers are triangles, pineapple are yellow squares, etc.)
  5. Students glue and overlap topping shapes.
