- A bag of prepared pizza dough or your own recipe
- A 12-ounce jar of Alfredo sauce or your favorite pizza sauce
- Whole black olives
- A variety of peppers, including an orange one
- Mozzarella cheese, grated
1. Assemble the snowman
Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick coating and lay the largest circle down. Add the smaller one next — slightly overlapping the large piece. If you are adding a third circle, you'll attach it in the same way. Shape leftover dough into a scarf, hat or any other accessory that your snowman might need. Use your imagination!
2. Decorate your snowman
Use your sauce, cheese and toppings to give your snowman life! A white sauce topped with mozzarella cheese works best to keep your snowman looking "snowy." Use olives as eyes, pepperoni for the hat and chopped veggies to decorate the scarf. Again, imagination is key to a truly brilliant snowman pizza.
3. Bake and serve
Slide the pan into the preheated oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or as directed in your recipe. When the pizza is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes — just long enough for the cheese to set.
