We eat a lot of pizza. Usually that means we take a blank canvas of soft dough and apply our favorite colors -basil, tomato, cheese, meats, veggies- then cut it into triangl-y pieces and eat the pointy ends first. But what if, this time, we changed neither the canvas nor the paints but the whole approach to eating pizza? How about dipping bread sticks in a cheesy, saucy pizza? Well, that's pretty good, except that bread sticks are boring. Then Claramecium (my oldest daughter's Instructables screen name), thought up the Octopizza, complete with pepperoni suckers. I love having kids!

Step 1: Ingredients

You can use whatever ingredients you like, canned sauce, fancy cheese... I think only two things are imperative to this recipe: pepperoni sticks and fresh dough.

I also used

one can tomato sauce (not diced, for ease of dipping)
some oregano, basil, fennel, garlic, onion, pepper, salt and oil to coax out the flav's

wonderful cheese

4 cups flour mixed with 1 Tbs salt and a shot of olive oil
2 cups warm-ish water with a Tbs of dissolved, happy yeast, all bright-eyed and foamy.

We have this pretty regularly. The kids really dig it. I mix herbs into the dough and brush the tentacles with olive oil and sprinkle on garlic salt.
Most amazing looking pizza design I've ever come across :-) Great idea!
Wow!!! So creative and fun! I love it! :)

Very cool! Name reminds me of a James Bond movie title for some reason... ;)
My Dad loves adding a bit of oregano on top of the cheese/toppings!
Make this a &quot;taco&quot; pizza to add the extra level of punniness to the recipe. <br> <br>Of course this only works if you understand a little Japanese.
I don't understand even a little Japanese. But I do know some guys on the internets. Do you suggest I make a Tako-taco-octopizza? Fun to say! Even more fun after saki.<br>
Hey Congrats! I was rooting for you. This one was my favorite!
Thank you! I'm glad my work pleased you. Looking forward to what's next!
This is so sweet! And don't kids just have the best ideas :)
We no sooner had the idea than we were taking photos and scoochmarooing ourselves a new kind of pizza! The pizza rolls look delicious, BTW. Did you know that they were invented here in Duluth, of all places?
Congrats on becoming a finalist! Good luck!
Thank you. Good luck to you too!
You've got my vote
Thanks. Do you think we can eat them fast enough to keep them from breeding?
haha, i dont know, we have an epidemic on our hands!
I've heard of deep dish but not deep sea pizza. :) Love this!
hahaaha!!!yay instructables!
Hi there, <br>I tried this today instead i put pesto on mine and cheese stuffed tentacles and made it a Cthulhu theme pizza. <br>Thanks for the inspiration. Here is a pic of mine https://twitter.com/Nashina/status/296889194268200961/photo/1
Pesto! Thank you so much for posting this pic. I hope it was as delicious as it looks.
I really like how different this looks, a great centrepiece for a party.
Thanks! Every day is a party around here.
What a fun idea!
Really cute idea!!!
I love this. One of my kids doesn't like sauce so he can just have the tentacles. Great Idea!
me and my dad LOVED this awesomely gross pizza! I should know,because this guy's <br>my dad! :)
That's adorable!
This looks 8 times better than a normal pizza.
