Pokeball Pizza

I'm a girly girl. And I like girly girl stuff. I like the color pink. I own more than one thing adorned with sequins. I watch romantic movies. And check out the latest styles on all my favorite retail websites. I'm not THAT high maintenance. I like to be outdoors. I clean the toilets. I take care of the dog. I can kill a spider when needed. I know how to  pull my weight. But there are some things I don't do.

I don't wrestle or try to break my bones on purpose or think body functions are particularly funny. I don't understand how one can ruin a new pair of jeans in the 6 hours spent at school. Or how a pair of tennies can only last a month. I don't get the Skylanders craze or Power Rangers! And I don't understand the fascination with sticks, rocks, or why it makes perfect sense to stuff your pant pockets with used kleenex. But, I have two little boys who love all of the above.

Every once in a while, I want to get on their level and be cool. I only know two ways to do this: 1) listen to a 20 minute monologue about Skylanders, Pokeman, or Power Rangers OR 2) pretend I love the previous three.

This weekend while my daughter was at a junior high dance, the boys and I stayed in. I made homemade pizza with a twist. I borrowed a Pinterest idea and made a Pokeball Pizza. I didn't say anything until it was finished cooking. When the boys came in the kitchen, the were full of compliments. They were so excited. Now that is what I love about boys...they are easy to please!



The original pin no longer links to the picture. I couldn't leave you hanging without at least a recipe. I'm sharing my homemade pizza sauce with you. It's easy and inexpensive.


1 (8oz) Tomato Sauce
1 (3oz) Tomato Paste
1 Tbsp. Oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
1 teaspoon Paprika

Mix Well. Ready to use.




  1. Awesome!

    Though I'd have to do without the olives. I do not like olives. I could replace them with sausage.

  2. That is absolutely awesome and you are girl after my own heart, I'm a huge lover of black olives on pizza. :)

  3. That is TOO cute! No surprise the boys loved it :)

  4. So CUTE!!! As a kid I LOVE Pokemon. M would die for a pizza like that :)
