"I came up with this idea for Halloween. I baked it in an S shape after combining an egg yolk with food coloring (I made several colors with several yolks) and painted to make a colorful striped snake. I used various food items to make a tongue, nostrils, and eyes (olives, peppercorns, fruit roll-up, etc). It was a hit with the kids! Serve with spaghetti sauce for dipping."

I submitted this recipe and want to add that I sometimes use pizza dough from the refrigerated section in the store to cut down on time. Then it's a breeze! Add or omit any "pizza toppings" you want to suit your taste. It's great for guests - just omit the colors and shape in a U.
I did not get this to work. I used refrigerated pizza crust dough from the store. I was lucky to roll it out to 12 inches and if fell apart as soon as I tried to pull the ends together. What a mess and such a disappointment.....
My family loved this from the presentation to the taste. I used canadian bacon instead of pepperoni but it still tasted fantastic.
I absolutely love this recipe! my family scarfed this down and wanted more. My family loves sausage so i added some into the filling. I love this recipe partially for the fact that it is so adaptable. I will definiely make this again.
Awesome idea for Halloween dinner! I omitted the ricotta cheese, since my crazy family won't eat it. Instead I added extra mozzarella and about 1/2 cup of sour cream. It was great!
I used pre-made pizza dough from Pilsbury. This is a great way to serve food to the kids any time. I made cheesburger calzones. The picky kids ate them right up. The egg was key in keeping it together. Next time I think I'll add bacon!
Great idea! Can also use this same technique and make a wreath for Christmas.
I love this recipe! We don't shape it like a snake though. I did make a few changes though. I always double the recipe. When i proof my yeast i use 1/2 cup of water and when it is time to add it to the flour and other ingredients i use 1 1/2 cups of warm milk (to replace the left out water) In the dough I add 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic, 1-2 tbsp of parsley and 1-2 tbsp Italian seasoning. In the cheese filling I add 2-3 more minced garlic cloves! (we like a lot of garlic) and about 1/2 cup of parm cheese. I like to keep the pepperoni separate from the cheese mixture. I put a thick layer of it on one side of the rolled out dough, then add the cheese mixture and close her up. They are delicious! And if there are any left overs, they taste really good cold the next day too!!!!
