Grandma's Pizza Company




Aren't grandmas amazing? Not only do they provide a wonderful mommy or daddy for each beloved grandchild, but many babysit all of them (for free!) and some of them also own and operate their own
PIZZA BUSINESS,
complete with take-out and delivery service!










Now, grandma knows that little kids are not gonna eat an entire 12" pizza by themselves. And there is only so much "cleaning up" after them that grandpa can do! Each of the kiddoes, also, is not going to like the exact same toppings. So wise and indulgent grandma offers custom baked-to-order food in custom made-to-size boxes that accommodate her hot, tasty English muffin pizzas! Each of those servings is topped off not only with carefully ladled sauce and a generously measured sprinkling of pepperoni and cheese, but also with a logo label that can be personalized with each child's name. That way, grandma can never be found guilty of the unfortunate demise of Little Miss "I'd-die-before-I-ever-ate-a-piece-of-green-pepper!"

So, how exactly does this charming little enterprise work? Well, just before lunch, grandma plants her little darlings in front of the noon showing of Sesame Street. She scurries into the kitchen to quickly assemble and bake her pizza orders. She pops them into the prepared boxes, sneaks out to the front porch, rings the doorbell, and cheerily announces "Pizza Delivery!" to the surprised and happy little faces that appear before her!

But that's not all!

When grandma makes her Mary Poppins-like babysitting visits, she frequently brings a stack of her little pizza treats, all ready to hand out and quickly re-warm in the microwave oven. And if mommy and daddy approve, those are accompanied by cute little mini-bottles of cola and a good movie to snuggle up and enjoy. Why would anybody ever want to go out for an evening? All the best fun is right here at home - with grandma!



Any comments? Oh, here's one!.... straight from the mouth of one of my best little customers!
"That grandma, really! She's amazing!"*








Ding Dong! If you would like to start your very own English muffin-size pizza delivery service, I have cooked up easy step-by-step directions for the boxes you'll need right here!


*or maybe she's just talkin' about the pizza!

  22. My grandkids are older that yours (sad truth), but they love to get delivery from Dominoes. My grandson keeps watching out the window and loves to go to the door to pay and accept the pizza. Your pizza delivery is a brilliant idea where each child gets the toppings of choice and feels special.
