Cat in the Hat Pizza for Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Party

February 25, 2017

< back to blog

I LOVE Dr. Seuss! When I was little, I wanted to be him when I grew up.

When my second daughter was three years old, she could almost recite The Cat in the Hat word for word.  She was adorable.  We decided it would be her 3rd birthday party theme.

As it turned out, pink, red, and aqua was an awesome party color scheme.

But you don’t have to wait for a birthday party to celebrate with the good doctor!

March 2 is Dr. Seuss’ birthday and it’s a great time to honor him and celebrate the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss.  I’ve got a post with some of the best ways to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday!

I wanted to share this quick and festive dish you can serve at a party or theme night with your family.

Cat in the Hat Pizza

Simple enough, you can start with the canned pizza crust.

I don’t normally dig the refrigerated dough, but it works in a pinch, and it’s perfect for this recipe since you actually want a rectangular shape!

Then, roll out the dough.  Carefully pinch and pull out the corners at the bottom to make a brim for the Cat’s hat.

I placed my finger at the place where I wanted the corner to be and stretched the dough outward from there.

Next, slather on some sauce.  I used jarred spaghetti sauce, but they also make sauce specifically for pizza or you can use canned tomato sauce and add a little basil and garlic.Cat in the Hat Pizza for your Dr. Seuss Party or Dr. Seuss Birthday celebration!

If you aren’t accustomed to making your own pizza, you want the sauce spread evenly and not too thick.  Enough to cover the dough, but not puddles.

If you notice, I put the cheese on thicker in layers and let it be a little bit thin in stripes.  That’s where I’ll put the pepperoni.Cat in the Hat Pizza for your Dr. Seuss Party or Dr. Seuss Birthday celebration!

At the brim of the hat, I brushed on a little olive oil and sprinkled with garlic powder to make it more of a garlic bread crust…almost like a built in breadsticks.

Bake according to package directions.   About 16 minutes at 400.Cat in the Hat Pizza for your Dr. Seuss Party or Dr. Seuss Birthday celebration!

Serve along side some Pink Ink Drink or Cat in the Hat cake pops and celebrate the wonderful, wacky world of Dr. Seuss!
