Activity Overview

Plant and grow a pizza garden in your own backyard. Get the kids excited about eating their vegetables with this whimsical pizza inspired garden. Many of the traditional plants that you would grow in your garden anyway could be allocated into this fun pizza garden. Some of these plant varieties include but are not limited to: tomatoes, peppers, onions, broccoli, basil, oregano, and parsley.

Children will enjoy tending to the plants within the pizza slice shaped wedges. It is a great way to get them interested in gardening and to start them off with their own defined gardening space. The end result is when they can reap what they have sown. At harvest time, work together to gather the ingredients from the pizza garden and make your own veggie pizza for dinner. Everyone will feel great that they all pitched in.

Materials Needed

  • Seeds or plants (basil, parsley, oregano, tomatoes, onions, peppers, broccoli)
  • A garden bed area
  • Shovel
  • A Stick and a String

How to Make It

  1. Choose an area in your garden to use as a pizza garden.
  2. Stand a stick up in the center of the allocated pizza garden area.
  3. Tie a string to the stick and stretch the string taut and move it around the stick while marking off the size of the circle that you desire for your pizza garden.
  4. Next use the string to mark off equal dividing wedges that resemble pizza slices.
  5. Plant each type of seed or plant in the individual sections so you have different types of vegetables and different herbs in each of the segments.
  6. Have fun watching your pizza garden grow.
