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.
- Spider Pizza: Pepperoni for the body, olives for the eyes, green bell pepper for the legs)
- Jack-O-Lantern: Pepperonis for the face, olives for the eyes, bell pepper for the brows and around the mouth.
Bake for an additional 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and crust is crisp.
Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions:
To Make Ahead: The pizza sauce can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge for up to one week. Prep and chop toppings ahead of time then keep in separate airtight containers in the fridge. The pizza dough can be made a few hours ahead and stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
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.
