So I was just playing with pinterest today and saw this pop up on the boards. I had to make it. It looked yummy. After making it I realized next time I need to make two… especially when feeding 5 people (2 of which are teenage boys).



1 can classic Pillsbury Pizza Dough
1 bag (2 cups) Mozzarella Cheese
1 pack of Pepperonis
1 jar your choice of pizza sauce



1- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Get out a baking sheet and lightly spray it with cooking spray.

2- Unroll pizza crust and press into a 10 x 13 rectangle. Mine ended up being larger at one end than the other but I’m sure you could press and roll it so that it evened out. Using a pair of kitchen scissors or a knife cut 8 equal strips along each of the longer sides. Leave a 3 inch space down the center of the dough.

3- Spoon pizza sauce along the center of the pizza dough along the 3 inch space you left. Top with 3/4 of cheese, then add 1/3 cup of pepperoni slices. Repeat by adding a second layer of cheese followed by a second layer of pepperoni.

4- Starting at one end fold the strips of dough across the center overlapping so it starts to look like a braid. Once you’ve folded all the strips over top the braided dough with the remaining pepperoni and cheese.

5- Bake for 20 minutes (start watching it at 15) until the crust is golden brown, baked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

5 Festive Halloween Treats to Give Classmates

A friend recently contacted me about a Halloween Treat article she wrote. And after seeing the above picture I thought it was to cute to not pass on!

Spider Pop- Cut up a black trash bag into 4 inch
squares – just enough to cover the number of spiders you want to make.
If you cut a 4 inch strip off of the top of the bag you will still be
able to use the rest of the bag.  Wrap the black plastic square over a
Tootsie pop.  Twist 4 black pipe cleaners over the plastic to hold it in
place, then spread the pipe cleaners out to create spider legs.  Bend
the legs once to form ‘knees’ and then again at the bottom to form
feet.  Now your spider treats are done.  If you are short on pipe
cleaners you can get by using just 3 pipe cleaners per spider, as most
people won’t count the legs.  These treats are also great to hand out
for trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.

How to put it together:
