Kids definitely do love pizza! When I was a kid, there were not as many pizza places as there are now. There were mostly small Mom & Pop pizza parlors or the local bowling alley. My Mom would bring home Alex's pizza for dinner maybe once a month and it was a treat. There were no square cardboard boxes, they used these hard paper plates, one for the bottom and one for the top - it kind of looked like those individual serving covers room service at hotels use. There was only one size and a limited number of toppings - but it was always delicious!
Try making a homemade pizza from scratch at home one night and see what combination of toppings you can use from your fridge.
