Scary Snake Calzone

Ingredients:

1 ball Heinen’s Refrigerated Pizza Dough (in Deli Refrigerated Case)
2 cups Heinen’s Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
4 oz. Heinen’s Sliced Pepperoni (in Deli Refrigerated Case)
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
2 Manzanilla Olives
Your Favorite Pizza Sauce

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°F.

Roll dough on lightly floured work surface to a 17×10-inch rectangle.

Cut 1 pepperoni slice to resemble a snake’s tongue; set aside. Arrange remaining pepperoni slices over dough rectangle, leaving 1-inch border around all sides; top with shredded cheese. Roll up dough, starting at one long side; pinch seams together to seal. Place, seam-side down, in “s” shape on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray to resemble a snake.

Beat egg white and water and brush over dough. Insert olives into one end of dough for the snake’s eyes. Add pepperoni tongue. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until golden brown.

Heat pizza sauce and serve with calzone.


Hot Dog Mummies

Ingredients:

1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
10 hot dogs
Ketchup
Mustard
Black Olives

Preparation:

Heat oven to 375°F.

Unroll dough; separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal.

With pizza cutter, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough.

Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to look like “bandages,” stretching dough to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate “bandages” so hot dog shows through for the face. Place wrapped hot dogs on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. Punch out black olives with pastry tip for eyes and secure with a dot of mustard.

Ketchup & Mustard Dipping Sauce

Place ketchup in a bowl and draw a center dot and 3 circles of mustard on top of ketchup. Take a toothpick and drag out from the center dot through the circles to the edge of the bowl.
