Fish Shaped Pizza or green frog calazones

I get this pizza crust from the book that came with my Kitchen Aid. You could use your own favorite as well. My kids love to help make the dough and the pizza.

1 package active dry yeast
1 C warm water
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil
2-1/2 to 3-1/2 C flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water in mixing bowl. Add salt, olive oil, and 2-1/2 cups flour. With dough hook, stir on speed 2 for 1 minute. Continuing on speed 2, add remaining flour 1/2 C at a time, and mix about 2 minutes, or until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on speed 2 for 2 more minutes. Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover. Let rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down. Press dough across a pan to form the shape of a fish. Spread with pizza or spaghetti sauce. Spread mozzerella cheese and then use pepperoni for the "scales" of the fish. Use a sliced black olive for the eye. Bake at 450 for 15 to 20 minutes.

You can also use this for calazones. Use food coloring to dye the dough green. Save some of the dough and once the calazone is wrapped make feet with leftover dough to make frogs. Use olives for the eyes and bake.
