A couple of days ago, my friend Jennell (of Oreo monkey muffins fame) sent me the link for these Weelicious mummy dogs. She said she thought I’d like them, and she was totally right. These are easy, fun and cute — what’s not to love?
I didn’t follow the original recipe exactly, but it’s pretty close. The original recipe called for eight hot dogs, but I wanted to make 12, so I did that, still using only one package of pizza dough. I also didn’t bother stretching out the dough before wrapping the hot dogs, and everything still turned out well. This is a great recipe for kids to help with, too.
Mummy Dogs, inspired by Weelicious
Makes 8 to 12 hot dogs
- One package of 8 hot dogs (you can make up to 12 if you want)
- One package of refrigerated pizza dough (I used Pillsbury pizza dough, sold in a tube, but you can use any brand, or even make your own)
- Mustard for the eyes
- Ketchup for dipping
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (or as instructed on the package of your pizza dough). Unwrap and unroll the pizza dough. Using shears or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 8 or 12 strips (equivalent to the number of hot dogs you’re making).
