Remember sitting at the kids' table for the holidays?  It wasn't all that bad but it could've been so much better if the featured turkey on the table was a Pizza-Gobbler!

1/4 yellow onion, finely diced

5 cloves garlic, finely diced, grated or pressed

2 Tb. dried basil

1Tb. dried oregano

3 Tb. extra virgin olive oil (2 Tb. for sauce, 1 Tb. for brushing on the "head")

1 can crushed tomato

1-2 Tb. granulated sugar

pinch salt

2 links turkey sausage or sweet Italian sausage

yellow bell pepper

canned roasted red pepper (pimento)

black olive

sliced pepperoni

sliced mozzarella cheese (4-6 slices)

1 tsp. garlic powder

This combination of cooking an crafts is fun to make and eat but don't be tied to the "Turkey-theme."  I'm thinking a sausage pizza shaped like a reindeer head and use chunks of dough for garlic-knot antlers, a pepperoni slice for the red nose and details for the eyes, mouth, etc. using things like pepper slices, black olives, taking into consideration what you need for color to delineate features.  Have fun!
