  1. * Note: See the "Basic Pizza Dough" recipe which is included in this collection.

  2. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Grease a large flat baking sheet with olive oil.

  3. Separate 1/3 of the Basic Pizza Dough and set aside. On a greased baking sheet shape the remaining two-thirds of the dough into a butterfly with 2 wings. Roll the reserved piece of dough into a "snake" and position in the center of the two wings as the "body". Pull some of the "body" dough up to shape into a "head" and pull some of the "body" dough down for a "tail."

  4. Spread sauce over the "wings". Sprinkle with cheese and decorate with toppings of choice.

  5. Bake the pizza on the middle rack of the oven for 20 to 30 minutes until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Serve warm.

  6. As an alternative the dough can be divided into 4 pieces and then shaped into bug or creature of choice, i.e. spider with legs, ladybug, dragonfly, snake, etc.

  7. This recipe yields 1 large pizza or 4 individual pizzas.
