This Halloween pizza recipe is the perfect ghoulish treat that serves six.
If you’re looking for Halloween food ideas to feed the family that are both spooky and quick to make then this Halloween pizza is the recipe for you. We’ve used a readymade base you can buy in most supermarkets for ease, although you could make your own pizza dough instead. The cheese ghosts are created using ghost-shaped cookie cutters. You could also use other themed shapes like bats, pumpkins, or spiders as well.
- 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.
