Halloween Dinner Idea: Mini Ghost Pizzas
Your kids will love making these fun mini pizzas, and you will love how quick and easy they are to make thanks to the store-bought pizza crust.
Of course, you have the option to make your own pizza dough for the crust if you have the time. But ready-made pizza crusts will leave more time for trick-or-treating.
Halloween Party Food
These Halloween pizzas would also make a great recipe for your Halloween party. Pair them with mummy hot dogs for an awesome Halloween-themed food table.
If you wanted to make these for a Halloween party, consider making them ahead of time and freezing them before you bake them. You would need to increase the bake time, but this can save you time on the day of the party.
Or, if you are hosting a children’s Halloween party, consider letting the kids make their own pizzas. Not only would it be an excellent way for kids to spend time during a Halloween party but it would also save you from spending a small fortune on enough delivery pizza to feed a hungry crowd of little ghosts and ghouls.
Ghost Pizzas Ingredients & Supplies
- Cooked pizza crusts
- Jar of pizza sauce or marinara sauce
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Can of black olives
- Ghost-shaped cookie cutter — The stronger the cookie cutter the better. We used a plastic cutter but this metal one would cut through the crust easier.
How to Make Mini Ghost Pizzas
- First, use a ghost cookie cutter to cut ghost shapes from cooked pizza crusts.
- Place the pizza crust onto a baking sheet and spoon sauce over them.
