Pizza #7: A Pumpkinface with Hot Dogs from Calgary
Inspired by our feature on Hormel's Halloween pizza ideas
, Keith Allen and his wife Jill of Calgary, Alberta Canada decided
to try their hand at crafting a jack o' lantern themed pizza for their Halloween party.
They started with a storebought crust and added traditional tomato sauce and mozzarella, diced tomatoes,
green peppers and onions. Then they used cut pepperoni shapes for the eyes and the zigzag mouth. As you can
see from their pre-bake photo they attempted to define a furrowed brow and triangle nose using cheddar cheese, but the
results didn't bake so well: you have to really look to see where the orange cheddar is.
Finally, Keith decided the pizza still needed something extra so they added hot dog slices for the nostrils. Unfortunately,
they also added slices over the whole face for tastiness, which kinds of ruins the whole "nostril effect" on the final product.
All in all this was an excellent effort by these cheese-and-hot-dog-lovin' Canadians. 7/10
for a pizza that I'm
sure put a smile on the faces of their party guests when they served it.
