Stuffed Monster Heads
Yum! Green pizza...every parent's idea of perfect food! Well, OK, so maybe this pizza is not for everyone. But it is lots of fun, really tasty, and quick and easy to make. It goes particularly well with our Toxic Punch. We used a storebought prebaked pizza shell, but you can use your favorite pizza dough recipe with excellent results. An easy variation is a chicken and broccoli pizza or a tofu and broccoli pizza. Both the chicken and tofu can be died easily. Green olives and green peppers are other "toxic" ingredients that can be mixed with any of the other ingredients. We used gel paste food colors to get our particularly vivid green color, but liquid food coloring should also work - just reduce the amount of pineapple juice used.
1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks, drained with 2 tablespoons juice reserved
Green food coloring
1 1/2 cups cubed ham
1 prebaked pizza crust
1/2 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl mix together the reserved pineapple juice and green food coloring until it is a very dark green color. Add the pineapple and ham and toss until both are dyed a deep green. Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet or stone. Spread the pizza sauce over the crust evenly and top with about half the cheese. Drain the pineapple and ham and sprinkle over top the cheese and sauce. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is browned. Serve hot.
