Halloween Mummy Pizza Recipe

halloween food recipes

These Mummy Pizzas were very easy to make and can be made ahead of time (both prerequisites when you are making 14 items for a Halloween party). I keep them layered in the fridge with parchment between them and bake them halfway through the Halloween party so that people have something substantial to eat.

I used pre sliced cheese and layered the cheese-admittedly all of the lines blurred together as the cheese melted so just make sure to leave a gap for the eyes which you can make out of a few things. I used mushrooms as the olives were a bit too small. I ended up making a vegetarian margarita version and a version using spicy sopressa salami tucked between the tomato and cheese.

An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

  • 2 large pizza bases

  • 150g/5ozs pizza sauce

  • 250g/1/2 pound packet of cheese slices with 12 slices

  • 12 slices of Sopressa salami (for vegetarian pizza, omit this item)

  • 4 button mushrooms

Step 1 - Spread the bases with the pizza sauce and place the salami slices on the pizza sauce. Slice the block of cheese slices vertically into quarters so that you get long slices of cheese as shown. Place the cheese on the pizza leaving a space for the eyes.

Step 2 - To make the eyes, remove the stem and slice the mushrooms creating an eyeball. Place in the area for the eyes. You can freeze them with parchment paper between them if you want to cook them at a later time or bake them in a 200C/400F oven for 10 minutes.
