- 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 4 slices Canadian bacon
- 3 slices pineapple
- 1 pitted ripe olive, cut in half lengthwise
- Roll dough into a 15-in. circle. Transfer to an ungreased 14-in. pizza pan, building up edges slightly. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Spread with sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 5 minutes. Cut each Canadian bacon slice into 1/4-in. strips; arrange on pizza for hair. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until cheese is browned.
- For eyes, arrange two slices pineapple and olive halves on pizza. Cut remaining pineapple slice in half. From one half, cut three thin pieces. Add the half slice and pieces of pineapple for mouth and teeth. (Save remaining pineapple for another use.) Yield: 8 servings.
