A Pizza the Size of the Sun Poem by Jack Prelutsky

A Pizza the Size of the Sun

Rating: 4.1


I'm making a pizza the size of the sun,
a pizza that's sure to weigh more than a ton,
a pizza too massive to pick up and toss,
a pizza resplendent with oceans of sauce.

I'm topping my pizza with mountains of cheese,
with acres of peppers, pimentos, and peas,
with mushrooms, tomatoes, and sausage galore,
with every last olive they had at the store.

My pizza is sure to be one of a kind,
my pizza will leave other pizzas behind,
my pizza will be a delectable treat,
that all who love pizza are welcome to eat.

The oven is hot, I believe it will take
a year and a half for my pizza to bake.
I can hardly wait til my pizza is done,
my wonderful pizza the size of the sun.

I would love a slice of that pizza, but I don't think I can wait a year and a half for it to bake! What oven will you use, Jack?

The AI voice is really horrible and a very poor example of eloquent speech ??

This actually is an awesome poem for ESL students, especially when exaggerated (over acting ??) .
