Boazone The Snake Calzone
13-14 oz. refrigerated pizza dough
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1-2 tsp. Italian seasoning
30-40 pepperoni slices
3-4 Tbl. melted butter or garlic butter
Green food coloring
1 egg yolk, stirred well
2 manzanilla olives
1 pepperoni for the tongue
Heat oven to 375 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil OR use parchment paper.
Coat the foil with spray release
Lightly dust work area or cutting board with flour.
Unroll dough and roll or flatten to a rectangle, approximately 17 x 10 inches or so.
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over pizza dough and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
TIP: leave one edge uncovered with cheese about 3 inches for space when you roll it up.
Cover the pizza with pepperoni slices, still keeping the one edge open and empty of toppings.
Roll in jelly roll fashion, but starting at one side and rolling the dough
Continue to roll up, keeping semi-tight, but try not to tear the dough
Continue to roll up both ends to the other side.
After rolling dough all the way to the other side, place the ‘snake’ so that the seam is down and does not show.
Pinch one end to make the tail .
And tuck in the other end to form the head.
My very handsome sous-chef (my hubby Stan) brushed the snake with the melted garlic butter and decorated the boazone by…
Dropping green food coloring randomly on the snake,
Use a paint brush to take it down the sides.
With the egg yolk, brush it sporadically around the green streaks.
After the snake is baked and cooked through, take a piece of pepperoni and cut off two sides.
Then snip towards the middle in two places to form a tongue.
We found the boa looked much better if waiting until the snake was cooked to add the tongue and the eyes.
Taking a knife, cut circles and place the olives inside for the eyes.
Carrie’s recipe and idea. Stan did the actual putting of Bozazone together, so all credit goes to him:)
