There’s nothing sinister about this snake. It’s filled with meat, sweet red pepper and cheese. You can paint the pizza dough any color or leave it plain.—Jaclyn Scanlan, Dayton, Ohio

Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 pound fresh chorizo, casings removed, or bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • FOR DECORATION:
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Green food coloring, optional
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 slices ripe olive

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Cut one small strip of red pepper and reserve; chop remaining pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chorizo, beef, pepper, onion and garlic, crumbling meat, until no longer pink; drain.
Roll dough into a 14x12-in. rectangle. Spread beef mixture lengthwise in middle of dough; sprinkle with cheese. Wrap dough around beef-cheese mixture. Pinch seam to seal; tuck ends under. Place seam side down on a parchment-lined 15x10x1-in. baking sheet, and form into a snake shape. Whisk egg and, if desired, food coloring. Paint snake with egg wash; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Decorate with two ripe olive slices for eyes and reserved red pepper strip for a tongue.
Bake until edges are golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before slicing.
