1. Use the template to cut a pair of round Mickey ears out of two of the tortillas. Then arrange the remaining whole tortilla and the ear tortillas on a serving plate or tray to look like Mickey's head.

2. Whisk the jam to make it smooth and then spread it on the tortillas, leaving a margin around each one plain to resemble pizza crust.

3. For "cheese," heat the white Candy Melts® in the microwave. Stir the candy until it's smooth enough to spread atop the jam. Don't be too fussy -- it will look more authentic if you swirl it randomly.

4. Top the cheese with red Candy Melts® pepperoni slices, diced green peppers (green fruit snack cut into small squares), and mushrooms fashioned from cashew halves. You can even add hidden Mickey "olives" by topping Junior Mints® candies with chocolate M&M's®.
