"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." — prttimecook

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.
This is a great one to make with kids. My 5 year old loved it! Does take a long time to make so we did a little activity while it was rising. Used the bread machine to mix and rise the dough. Next time I will cut the ricotta cheese in half and use sausage with the pepperoni. Served it with pizza sauce for dipping. Will definitely make the dough again for other recipes.
