Back when I was a child, you had to queue to be seated in our local Pizza Hut. I remember waiting and waiting, and finally getting seated and then fun with the free spinning tops and the paper place mats that had little puzzles and games on them. Also the best little red pencils ever that you got to take home! We didn't eat out much and if we went to Pizza Hut it was a really big treat. It's funny I can't imagine anyone waiting around to be served like that today. This was before the days of "all you could eat" pizza too, you ordered off the menu and again the waiting for the pizzas to arrive. I'm not sure how we ended up with the mini pizza box but I was inspired to make the above "pizza" out of salt dough to put inside. I can't really remember playing with it, but I'm sure I must have. Mum had it tucked away in her hot water cupboard as salt dough does tend to get a bit soft, obviously quite forgotten for many, many years. Miss E has added it to her play food collection and has been delivering my pizza ever since.
