Olympic Rings Pizza Recipe

Olympic Rings Pizza Recipe

We celebrated our daughter's birthday (during the last Winter Games) with an Olympics theme party that could be adapted for a 2000 Summer Olympics gathering. The symbolic five rings - made from pepperoni - decorate the yummy homemade pizza. -Therese Judge, Westminster, Maryland
