Scary Snake Calzone

My kids and I had a great time making this... and eating it too! It was surprisingly delicious! It's a perfect Halloween dinner because it's simple, quick, and a showstopper for the kids. I found it on the Kraft website.

Snake Calzone

1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated pizza dough
½ cup shredded mozzarella
½ cup Ricotta cheese
31 slices Pepperoni, divided
1 egg white
1 drop yellow and green food coloring, divided
2 green olives
1 cup pizza sauce

Heat oven to 350. Unroll dough on slightly floured surface. Roll or flatten to 17x10 inch rectangle. Combine cheeses. Cut pepperoni slice to resemble a snake’s tongue; set aside. Arrange remaining pepperoni slices over dough rectangle, leaving a 1 inch border around all sides; top with spoonfuls of the cheese mixture. Roll up dough, jelly roll fashion, starting at one long side; pinch seams together to seal. Place, seam side down, in an “s” shape on a foil covered baking sheet.

Beat egg white and yellow food coloring lightly with a fork; brush about half over dough. Add green food coloring to remaining egg white; brush randomly over dough to resemble a snake’s splotched skin. Insert olives into one end of dough for the snake’s eyes. Add pepperoni tongue.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until golden brown. Heat pizza sauce just until warmed.
Serve calzone with pizza sauce.
