Pizza #9: Lil' Santa

A cute little Santa As promised here is another Christmas-themed creation, this time a little easy-to-make Santa Claus. This project is easy enough that it would make a great project to do with the kids on Christmas Eve.

You just need a storebought pizza crust, tomato sauce, white sauce (such as a four-cheese), black olives, green pepper and a few small tomatoes.

The only prep you'll need to do is to slice a round bit from the tomato for a nose and slice the "bumps" off the top of bottom of the green pepper for feet.

A little unusual because the cheese is underneath Next you cut out a triangular Santa Claus shape as shown in the photo to the right. Then the next step may seem kind of strange because instead adding sauce to the crust you instead cover the crust with cheese and then add sauce on top. This makes the pizza extra-messy to eat while still retaining it's classic pizza flavour.

With the cheese and sauce on the crust, bake until it's about 50% done. Then pop the pizza out of the oven and add the olives and tomato to his face and coat and pop a green pepper "boot" onto each of his feet. Toss this back in the oven until fully baked. The reason for doing this is the lesson learned from Cheesy The Snowman. By applying the face partway through the baking process we can ensure the olives won't disappear amongst the sauce and cheese.

This one is tough to rate for a few reasons. For one, it's not a difficult pizza to make so the challenge is low. However I think that's part of it's appeal especially as a family cooking activity. I'm going to give this little Santa Clause an 8/10 because although there's not much to this pizza, he's got a cute smile and he exudes that Chistmassy quality that a holiday happy happy pizza should.
