    2      tablespoons   olive oil -- (up to 3)
    1      recipe        basic pizza dough (see above
                         -- recipe)
    2      cups          prepared tomato sauce
    3      cups          grated mozzarella -- cheddar and/or
                         -- monterey jack
                         -- cheese
                         topping ideas:
    1                    green bell pepper -- cut into 1/2-inch
                         -- wide strips
    1                    yellow or orange bell pepper -- cut into strips
    1      large         kalamata olives -- halved and pitted
                         sliced pepperoni
 
 Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Grease a large flat baking sheet with olive oil.
 
 Separate 1/3 of the dough and set aside. On a greased baking sheet shape the re
 maining two-thirds of the dough into a butterfly with 2 wings. Roll the reserve
 d piece of dough into a “snake” and position in the center of the two wings as 
 the “body”. Pull some of the “body” dough up to shape into a “head” and pull so
 me of the “body” dough down for a “tail.”
 
 Spread sauce over the “wings”. Sprinkle with cheese and decorate with toppings 
 of choice.
 
 Bake the pizza on the middle rack of the oven for 20 to 30 minutes until crust 
 is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Serve warm.
 
 As an alternative the dough can be divided into 4 pieces and then shaped into b
 ug or creature of choice, i.e. spider with legs, ladybug, dragonfly, snake, etc
 .
 
 Yield: 1 large pizza or 4 individual pizzas
