How to Dress Christmas Pizza
I wanted to make the pizza have a fun look of Christmas tree. I made a top to look like a Christmas topper and then veggies for garland.
Slice and serve with a crisp green salad as the side.
What Sauce to Use on Homemade Pizza
You will use a canned pizza sauce or feel free to make a homemade pizza sauce to spread onto the crust.
For me I am busy and find canned or jarred sauce offers a very similar flavor and no one will notice it is not homemade.

How to Shape Pizza Crust into A Tree
You will roll out your dough and then cut or shape into a triangle form. Then with excess dough you can place at bottom of tree for a trunk.
It will expand a bit as it bakes but for the most art it will give you a tree shape.
Why Do You Brush Dough With Egg Wash
This will help offer a golden crust on your pizza. If you don’t add the egg wash you will find it can leave your pizza dough a bit pale in color.
Just do your egg with water and mix really well. Then lightly brush over dough. Make sure not to apply too much in one area as you don’t want it to be eggy.

Best Way to Reheat Pizza
You will want to reheat your pizza in a handful of ways. You can warm in the microwave. Then you can opt for the stovetop version if you would like.

Lastly, you can preheat oven to 275 degrees and heat you pizza on a baking sheet until warmed through. If you find toppings are overcooking place aluminum foil over the top.
