BOO! Pizza just got scarier & more delicious

Who doesn’t love pizza? Combine this cheesy favorite with the most “spooktacular” time of the year, and you’ve got yourself a festive Halloween treat! These mini ghost pizzas only require a few ingredients and make a great addition to any Halloween gathering! Or, make one big pie to share.

What you’ll need:

  • One 1-pound ball prepared pizza dough
  • All-purpose flour, to roll the dough
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 20 slices mozzarella cheese
  • Sliced ripe olives
  • 1 small ghost-shaped cookie cutter

What you’ll do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease the baking sheet with the olive oil.
  3. Divide the dough into 16 portions. Flatten each portion into a thin round (about 1-1/2 inches) and place on the baking sheet.
  4. Spread sauce as desired on each round of dough.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Meanwhile, use the ghost cookie cutter to cut a ghost out of each cheese slice.
  7. Once the pizza dough rounds are cooked, immediately place a ghost shaped cheese slice on each mini pizza.
  8. Add pieces of olives for faces.

Make it fun!
