This might sound like a peculiar question but does anyone know how I might get an image of a pizza in the shape of Australia?

Perhaps one of the usual programs has a shaping feature ie mapping, follow path or something.

Just to clarify, I'm not referring to pasting as a mask but instead want it to look like the pizza has been baked in the shape of Australia, crust and all.

Thanks in advance.

Not to sound silly, but why not buy some pizza dough, roll it out and shape it into the shape of australia, put your toppings on, bake it and invite your friends. Take a picture of it when it's done before your friends arrive. You get your photo and a party at the same time. At least that's what I'd do.

Here is v2. It will require many more attempts, experimenting with various toppings etc before I'm satisfied with it and I'll no doubt put on weight in the process.

Is that a real pizza? LOL OMG that is so funny. Nice job either way. Only thing the picture looks a little funny. The colors look weird. It doesn't look very apetizing.

It is indeed a real pizza and I'm no expert. I didn't have much in the way of ingredients the oven is an electric fan-forced thing, not designed for creating the perfect pizza. It didn't help much using a camera phone to take the picture and I'm sure any photographer would wince at the lighting and exposure, etc, etc, etc. All these inhibiting parameters illustrate the reason why I was looking for a virtual version in the first place.

To be honest, other than the colouring i don't see anything wrong with that photo.

Getting back to the topic in hand, i'm sorry for not getting back to you on a tut. I've just been totally swamped this last week and a bit. I'm not sure when i'll have some good time left.

I'm Welsh actually but that's not an excuse. I'm fully aware of Tassie being part of Australia. Do foreigners think it's part of New Zealand or perhaps another bloody French colony?

Anyway, I fully intended to add a piece of garlic bread to represent Tassie but eventually went for the meticulously shaped ketchup splodge instead.

I've always thought of Tassie being part of Oz. To be honest i never really thought alot of the georgaphy of Oz until i started to prepare for my travels there.

Just seeing that map Musik has totally made me miss being there. Would you believe i've been back here for 3 months already?!?

I live in the Great Southern Land and it is indeed a great country to live in. Ironically, as much as we love our country, we Australians have always had a strong desire to travel abroad, which we are well known for.

The photo of pizza in the shape of Australia was hilarious. Either someone was feeling very patriotic or had too much time on their hands.

Wow, that's pretty awesome haha, just make sure you fix the coloring and maybe replace the tomatoes (a little too silly looking).
