Halloween is a time of treats and sweets, but not all of them have to be sugary! When it comes to delighting the little monsters at your Halloween gathering, why not serve up some savory and fun treats that will satisfy their appetites? In this blog post, we’ll dive into a recipe idea that is sure to be a hit with kids—Cheesy Mummy Pizzas. These delicious and adorable mummies will add a touch of whimsy to your Halloween feast, and the best part is, they’re super easy to make!
- English muffins or mini pizza crusts
- Tomato sauce or pizza sauce
- Mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Black olives, sliced
- Mini pepperoni slices
- Optional toppings: diced bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, or any other preferred pizza toppings
- Preheat your oven to the temperature indicated on the pizza crust packaging.
- Cut the English muffins or mini pizza crusts in half to create individual pizza bases. Place them on a baking sheet.
- Spread a layer of tomato or pizza sauce over each pizza base, leaving a small border around the edges for the crust.
- Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, covering it completely.
- Now, it’s time to transform these ordinary pizzas into cheesy mummies! Take the sliced black olives and place them strategically on the pizza to resemble eyes. You can get creative here—try using half slices, whole slices, or even mixing different-sized olive slices for a playful effect.
- For the mummy’s bandages, place mini pepperoni slices across the pizza, leaving some spaces for the “eyes” to peek through. These slices will create a wriggly, bandage-like appearance.
- If desired, add other toppings such as diced bell peppers or sliced mushrooms to create extra texture and flavor.
- Once your mummy pizzas are assembled, pop them into the preheated oven and bake according to the pizza crust instructions, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Remove the mummy pizzas from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. This will ensure that the cheese has set and won’t be too hot for little mouths.
