Italians may have invented pizza, but a California man is bringing his version to Yukon, Oklahoma.

It looks more like a farm than a pizza, that's because it is. But it's also Darren Schmall's way to teach kids about where food comes from. Inside a pizza-shaped farm, he placed all the ingredients. Cows for cheese, pigs for bacon, and wheat for the crust.

Gerald Ashby with Route 66 Traders Market, "We are bringing the farm to the people. Showing people what farmers do and how farmers grow things and that everything that we eat comes from the farm basically."

By the way, Schmall picked pizza because it's many kids' favorite food.
