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. Using food is one of my favorite ways to encourage a love of learning in your kids.  Who doesn’t like eating and learning?

Learn & Eat!

How to make Animal Cell Model Pizza

 Complete listing of ingredients and what they symbolize is found in activity guide below. For a limited time, you can get our Cell Activity Guide for free. Simply, enter your name & email below. We’ll send it to you immediately.



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.
