How To Homeschool My Child

Animal Cell Models with Pizza

Making an animal cell model with pizza was one of our family favorite activities in homeschooling.

Whether you are doing high school biology or elementary health, making a pizza model of a cell is fun.

I browned all the sausage and froze it for future meals.


You can use pre-made pizza sauce, but I made my own. Add garlic powder, basil, pepper to a can of tomato sauce…easy!


Spread sauce on crust. Leave a border of crust to resemble the cell wall.


Slice toppings.  The ham piece was the hardest.


Place tomato & mushroom in center to symbolize nucleus & nucleolus.



Bake pizza in your oven.  Follow directions for the crust you use.

    Looks like a fun activity. We will be doing high school biology this year. We will not be doing many labs because we do not have a microscope.
