How to make Halloween Pizzas:

Make the No-Rise Pizza Dough: Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add warm water and oil then mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Add enough flour to make a soft dough ball that will be slightly sticky. Pour out onto a floured surface and knead, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Divide dough into 4 portions.

Pre-Bake Pizza Crust: Roll or pat each portion into an 8-inch circle then place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 5-6 minutes — dough will be just set and only lightly browned on the bottom.

Add Sauce and Toppings: Spread each crust with pizza sauce and cheese. Top with desired toppings to make Halloween designs!

  • Ghosts: slices of fresh mozzarella cheese for the body and olives for the eyes.
  • Mummy: slices of Mozzarella cheese for the white strips and olives for the eyes.

To Freeze: Assemble pizza on partially pre-baked crust. Cover well and freeze for up to 2 months. Bake as directed from frozen, adding a few minutes to the cook time.
