MINI HALLOWEEN PIZZAS: For the pizza lovers out there, of course we have to throw in Halloween Pizza recipes! Here’s what you’ll need: 1 ball of homemade pizza dough, 1 cup pizza sauce, ½ pound cheese, pepperoni, bell peppers, olives, onion, pineapple, parsley, salami, and Canadian bacon (all toppings are optional). First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Divide the pizza dough into four portions. Roll/pat each portion into an eight-inch circle and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Spread each crust with pizza sauce. Top them with the toppings of your choice to make Halloween inspired designs. If you would like to make ghosts, cut a thin round of fresh mozzarella. Cut the round into the shape of a ghost. Use diced olives for the eyes. If you would like to make a mummy, cut a thin round of mozzarella. Slice the round into strips for the mummy bandages. Use sliced olives for the eyes. For a spider, use pepperoni slices to make the body shape, sliced green bell pepper for the legs and olives for the eyes. After each topping has been added, bake each pizza for another 5 – 8 minutes until the cheese is melted. Now you have some cute and tasty mini Halloween pizzas!
