Snow man Pizza

What does December make you think of?  All the lights? The possible snow? The candy, cookies,
and hot chocolate?  With all the festive gatherings and events it's easy to get swept up in the
crazy hustle and  bustle of the Chanukah & Christmas season.  I wanted to make something
that was winter related to something that is everyday food. What better than a snow man pizza!
I made mine a snow man margherita pizza but you can make it with any topping you want and like!
Take some pizza dough (often in the deli section if you want already made dough) or the dry packages
where you just add water is often found in the baking aisle of the supermarket.

One your dough is rolled out and ready--- simply divide it into 3 balls; representing the
snow balls of the snow man.

After you roll out the 3 circles of dough, you want to get your  pizza toppings ready.
I used salad tomatoes, basil, fresh mozzarella balls and a small can of tomato sauce.

Then comes the fun part! The decorating! Having some black olives would of probably
 helped in looking more like a snow man.

So my snow man is a little more abstract than I initially wanted but none the less....
the pizza was good!  It baked for about 15 minutes on 400 degrees.
