Petrified Pizza

Here are some pizza ideas I used at this year's party. It only takes a few extra minutes to make your meals match the decor.

For one pizza, I had a tomato sauce, onions, mozzarella cheese, sliced turkey pepperettes and red peppers. I used the red peppers to spell out 'HELP' across the pizza...a cry from an employee in the kitchen.

The next was a giant sea monkey pizza (shrimp) with fresh basil, some mozzarella, and an artichoke and asiago cheese spread as the sauce.


Some ideas work, some ideas don't. Don't be discouraged.

For example, the eyeball pizza was Greek flavoured. I made a garlic oil and butter sauce for the base, cooked some spinach with garlic, added fresh oregano, sprinkled feta cheese around the top (and some grated pecarino), and used fresh mozzarella and kalamata olives to create eyeballs.

An egg cup helped me to cut out circles from the cheese. I placed a mound of spinach with an olive in the centre for the iris and pupil. I then used a toothpick and red food colouring to create veins.

Next time, I will make the circles smaller in diameter (and maybe thicker) to see if that helps them retain their shape.
