Heat oven to 450°F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Combine baking mix and milk in bowl. Stir with a fork until soft dough forms. Turn onto surface sprinkled with flour. Shape into 20 small balls.

Using a rolling pen or tortilla press, shape each ball in a 3 1/2 inch diameter (1/4-inch thick). Arrange 10 rounds on prepared baking sheet. Spread 2 teaspoons pizza sauce on each; top with 1 1/2 Tablespoons shredded cheese, 1 pepperoni slice, 1 teaspoon 3 color peppers and 1 1/2 Tablespoons shredded cheese. Arrange 3 carrot matchsticks on each side of every pizza for legs. Moisten edges of crust and top with dough round. Seal edges with a fork.

Place each egg yolk in a small bowl and add 1 teaspoon red in one and green in the other; stir to blend. Decorate tops with different caterpillar designs. Bake 10 minutes or until cooked through. Arrange on a platter in a zigzag pattern and garnish the head with a tomato and olives for eyes using toothpicks to secure.
