Pizza in a jar is a hit with the kids (and adults too) because who doesn’t love pizza? Let’s face it, putting pizza into a jar is just a fun, new way to serve it and a total score for a fun entertaining idea. The serving size for these jars is for the teenager and above crowd (little kids may find it hard to finish one of these jars). Here’s what you are going to need to create your own super easy pizza in a jar.
