Choose any or all of the items from the list. Arrange them on the pizza stone or in the pizza pan. You can also use a new pizza box, which you can often get at your local pizza shop very inexpensively. You can place the pizza stone or pan in the pizza box if you’d like. Arrange the other components of the gift together, using twine and tape to secure each to each other and to the base. You can wrap the entire thing in cello wrap or a cello bag and seal. Tie it together with raffia or twine.
