Did you know that pizza is the only savory food that officially appears on the unicorn food pyramid?
Honestly, this fact alone speaks to the magical nature of pizza. But unlike humans, unicorns are not content to simply enjoy plain ol' yellow/beige pizza. They kick things up six notches by incorporating all of the colors of the rainbow.
Since you might have trouble lassoing a rainbow on your own, this recipe employs food coloring to tint the cheese. It still tastes like regular pizza, but it looks like a unicorn farted on it. Lucky you!
RAINBOW UNICORN PIZZA
Makes 1 pizza
- 1 portion pizza dough, uncooked (your favorite recipe)
- 2 tablespoons alfredo or white sauce
- 6 ounces grated mozzarella cheese
- Food coloring in as many colors as you want
- Edible glitter and/or sprinkles (optional)
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees F.
Divide the cheese into as many equal portions as you want colors on your pizza.
Put each portion of cheese into a plastic bag. In each respective bag, squeeze a few drops of the food coloring color you want to tint it. Just an FYI: don't go too dark with the purple, because it can appear blackened once baked (as you can see in some of the photos). Still tasty though!
Shake each bag vigorously to coat the cheese in your chosen color.
Spread/stretch your pizza dough to about 12 inches. Place it on a lightly oiled baking tray.
Spread the white sauce on top of the dough, leaving a perimeter around the edges for crust.
Scatter the cheese into strips across the surface of the pizza. While it might seem fun to scatter it all willy nilly, keeping the colors somewhat divided in their own sectors will make for the prettiest outcome.
Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is browned to your liking; usually no more than 7-10 minutes.
Remove from the oven; if desired, add sprinkles. Slice into 8 wedges using a pizza cutter. Serve warm. Taste the rainbowwwww!
