Okay, true story: I was invited to a White Elephant party last weekend and, in the spirit of absurdity, I brought a giant cheese ball in the shape of a Christmas tree. It was rolled in parsley, with almond slivers as garland, and red bell peppers as ornaments. It was a hit. It also looked like it was ripped straight out of a Betty Crocker magazine from the 1950s--oddly reproduced (and incredibly unappetizing) colors and all. THIS Christmas tree-shaped treat looks incredibly delectable on the other hand.
It's a basil pesto pizza with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and a "dusting of cheese". Have holiday colors ever looked so edible?? I mean really. "Get in my belly, you delicious looking pizza!" is all I can think. Check out A Couple Cooks for tips on making your own tree-shaped pizza (including recipes for the pesto and crust)! You know you want to.
