Snake Calzone

Today is

So we made this today as a snack/appetizer for the kids. Let me just say they loved it and the girls loved watching and helping me make it.

1 can (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza dough
1/2 cup  KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup POLLY-O Original Ricotta Cheese
31 slices  OSCAR MAYER Pepperoni, divided
egg white
1 drop  each yellow and green food coloring, divided
manzanilla olives
1 cup  pizza sauce

HEAT oven to 350°F.
UNROLL dough on lightly floured work surface; roll or flatten to 17x10-inch rectangle. Combine cheeses.
CUT 1 pepperoni slice to resemble a snake's tongue; set aside. Arrange remaining pepperoni slices over dough rectangle, leaving 1-inch border around all sides; top with spoonfuls of the cheese mixture. Roll up dough, jelly-roll fashion, starting at one long side; pinch seams together to seal. Place, seam-side down, in "s" shape on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray to resemble snake.
BEAT egg white and yellow food coloring lightly with fork; brush about half over dough. Add green food coloring to remaining egg white; brush randomly over dough to resemble a snake's splotched skin. Insert olives into one end of dough for the snake's eyes. Add pepperoni tongue.
BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until golden brown. Meanwhile, heat pizza sauce just until warmed.
SERVE calzone with the sauce.
