I haven't made these in a long time.  I started making them almost 20 years ago when I used to babysit my younger sisters and they loved them.  It was time to dust off this fun food activity for my kids.

These are strombolis (or calzones) with dough feet and head added. The tail comes from twisting the whole thing shut.  We make the color by mixing an egg, some water and food coloring to brush onto them.  The eyes are dough and food coloring mixed. Finally, they have a quarter of a pepperoni slice rolled and slid into their mouths for tongues.

We also have a new addition: Pizza Clam. I took a melon baller to an onion to give it a pearl.  I suppose I could have just added an olive.

We tried to give each family member a different color Pizza Turtle, but in retrospect, shades of green become less distinguishable once cooked.  Note to self: choose blue, yellow and green instead of sea green, lime green, and green.
