The next time you find yourself mad with hunger, get into the kitchen with your family to cook up some happy memories! If you’re anything like our hot-headed friend, Anger, from Inside Out, then you’re undoubtedly passionate about pizza. Hawaiian style, with pineapple and ham? You’ve got to be kidding! How about a healthy scattering of broccoli florets on top? Who puts broccoli on pizza!?
Zesty red sauce, melty cheese and spicy pepperoni–with so few ingredients, this is a recipe you won’t easily forget! Just like Anger prefers his slices, this pie is made the traditional way with one special change–it has a blazing image of his face on it! Now that we’ve gone back to basics, maybe our fiery friend can finally put his feet up and chill out!
- 1- 8” pizza crust, ready-made
- 3 Tbsp pizza sauce
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 8 large pieces of pepperoni, thinly sliced
- 3 slices of hard cheese, in 3 shades of orange
- 1 slice hard cheese, white
- 1 black olive
To make Anger’s face, lay the slices of pepperoni on a small piece of parchment paper. Overlap the slices by ½” to create a rough 3” x 4” rectangle. Place another small piece of parchment paper on top of the layered pepperoni, then use your hands to flatten the slices against each other to create one even layer.
Remove the top layer of parchment. Use a sharp knife to cut the sides of Anger’s face straight. His face should resemble a trapezoid.
Create Anger’s head flames by using a paring knife to cut a slice of orange cheese into a rough triangle with 2 wavy sides. Cut the 2 other shades/slices of orange cheese, now in sizes different from the first. The base of the largest triangle should be the same length as the top of Anger’s face.
Layer the cheese flames, with the smallest piece on top and the largest on the bottom.
Create Anger’s teeth and eyes by cutting them out from a slice of hard, white cheese.
To create the center of Anger’s eyes, cut the olive in half lengthwise. Cut each half into a “U” shape.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare the pizza by spreading an even layer of sauce on the crust, then top with the mozzarella. Bake for about 7-10 minutes (or according to package instructions) until the crust is slightly browned & the cheese is melted.
After removing from the oven, allow the pizza to cool for a few minutes. Using a small spatula, transfer Anger’s face onto the surface of the pizza. Arrange the cheese “flames” above Anger’s face. Place the white cheese cut-outs and cut olives atop the pepperoni as his eyes. Finally, place the other white cheese cut-out on for his teeth. Serve immediately & enjoy!
