This Halloween pizza uses a readymade base which you can buy in most leading supermarkets – you can opt for a base already cooked or you can opt for a dough mixture which you make yourself. Of course, we’d recommend our homemade pizza dough which so simple to make – and much healthier too!
- 290g packet pizza base mix or homemade pizza dough
- 90ml (6tbsp) sun-dried tomato paste or tomato pizza topping
- 10ml (2tsp) olive oil
- 240g packet Edam cheese or Mozzarella slices
- Pepperoni, optional
- Olives, optional
Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas mark 7. Make up the pizza base mix according to the instructions and knead on a floured surface for 5 mins. Then, roll out thinly to a 23 x 35cm (9 x 14in) rectangle.
Place on a baking sheet and spread over the sun-dried tomato paste or pizza topping. Drizzle over the olive oil and bake for 10 mins.
Using cookie cutters, cut out ghost, pumpkin and bat shapes from your chosen cheese slices. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with the cheese shapes. Return to the oven for a further 5-6 mins until the pizza base is crisp and the cheese has just melted.
