After I made red pizza and green pizza, my husband thought it would be absolutely fantastic if I combined their festive forces to create a Christmas pizza. Since I am not one to turn down a challenge (no matter how insane), I got down to some serious pizza making. I made two different Christmas pizzas because I was informed that we needed, needed, to have red and green crust on each piece (thanks, honey). This did turn out very festive and yummy, so if you are a whole lot of ambitious and really want to impress your company, just whip up some holly jolly pizza!

Warning: only try this if you are super ambitious!
Using half of each dough type, roll out 2 equal sized circles of dough (about 12 inches).
Using a pizza cutter, cut each dough circle into 1-inch strips.
Slowly, weave the green dough strips into the red dough strips, one piece at a time. In the end, you should have a woven checkered pattern.
Flatten pizza with a rolling pin and add sauce, cheese, and toppings.
A little faster and easier, this pizza breaks apart into nice breadstick pieces.
Using half of each dough type, split each dough ball into three equal pieces. Form each piece into equal length logs (about 9 inches).
Lay logs next to one another and flatten with a rolling pin. Add sauce, cheese and toppings
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Place each pizza on a pizza pan or baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust begins to brown.
Amy, I like the festive look of this pizza. I'm sure everyone loved it!ReplyDelete
