Easter Bunny Pizza

By  | 

Just about everyone loves pizza and it makes a terrific kid’s’ party food for the Easter season. What? Didn’’t you know the Easter Bunny is Italian? He is… — at least he can be –…when you’’re getting ready for the kid’s’ holiday lunch and you know they won’’t want the fancy fare the adults are having.

You can use whatever pizza crust and sauce is your best-loved for the base of this, but I’’m including our family Friday night favorite recipe in case you want to try it.

Whatever base you use, to transmute a plain pizza into Easter Bunny Pizza, this is what you’’ll need:

  • cookie cutters in the shape of an egg, a chick and a rabbit; I used a large and small rabbit shape.
  • ham lunch meat slices
  • mozzarella cheese slices; you really do want the slices for this version because they don’’t melt as fast so they retain the rabbit shape.
  • yellow pepper

  • This should be a thin crust pizza as it cooks more quickly and allows the cheese to melt, not burn.
  • Use the egg cookie cutter on the ham; rabbits are made from cheese; chicks are cut from yellow peppers.
  • We made 4 rows of Easter shapes. Of course you can arrange the toppings however it pleases your eye, but we topped the ham with the smaller rabbit shapes and alternated larger cheese rabbits with the ham eggs. Place the chicks between the ham and cheese rows.

Pizza Sauce

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
  • 1 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano

Brown the onion in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil; add the other ingredients and stir. Let the sauce come to a simmer so it gently bubbles; stir occasionally. We like the sauce best after it’’s on the stove for a couple of hours, but as long as you heat it through you’’ll still like it.

Pizza Dough

  • 1 package dry yeast; I like quick rise.
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 cups of flour

After this is mixed well, place it in an oiled bowl and cover with a dish towel to let is rise. Quick rise takes only a half hour.

I use two 11” x 16” pans. Oil your pans with olive oil; spread out the dough. Pour on the sauce; cover with cheese and your choice of toppings. Bake 15-20 minutes at 425*.

Mama mia! SO GOOD!
