Christmas Tree Pizza

I saw this recipe on KSL the other day and thought it was the cutest idea!
What a fun dinner night to do before Christmas.
We made it for Christmas Eve and it was so much fun and tasted so good!
Try this for your Christmas holiday!

Rhodes: Christmas Tree Pizza!


Ingredients:

  • 16 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
  • 1/2 c. Alfredo sauce
  • 1 1/2 c. grated mozzarella cheese
  • pepperoni (2 sizes)
  • red, green and yellow peppers
  • red pepper flakes
  • You can also use sausage too or whatever other creative decorations you can think of for your tree.

Directions:

Place 16 rolls on a sprayed baking sheet in a pyramid shape starting with one at the top, two under it, then 3, then 4 and the last row 5 rolls. Leave some space between the rolls. Flatten and press rolls together to form a tree shape. Press middle of the rolls in, leaving the outside edge slightly rounded so the sauce and toppings do not run off. The trunk of the tree is one roll placed under the last row of 5. Tuck it under and flatten. 

Poke your rolls several times with a fork to prevent bubbles from forming and pre-bake at 350°F 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Spread Alfredo sauce over the crust, then sprinkle with cheese. Decorate as desired with pepperoni, peppers cut into different shapes and red pepper flakes. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
