Festive Halloween Pizza

With Halloween fast approaching our family has been getting a bit creative in the kitchen. I’ve always loved making festive Halloween food, but with little ones to share it with, it’s even more fun.

Since homemade pizza is a family favorite, I thought we’d turn those pantry staples into something “spooky” and kid-friendly.

California Ripe Olives are great to use, not only do they provide pops of color, but their texture and flavor is something that kids love! I know I’ve found that the more interesting the food is, the more likely our kiddos will try it and love it!

These mini spooky spider pizzas with California Ripe Olives were so easy to make and so fun eat! 

I can’t wait to make more Halloween food art with black olives. They’re so versatile and would make great little pumpkin faces, monster eyes or even snakes! So many fun things that kids will absolutely love! What kind of spooky treats do you have planned for your kids this year? I’d love to hear your ideas!

Making mini spooky spider pizzas

These mini pizzas are really easy to make!

CRUST. Roll out my honey whole wheat pizza dough into individual rounds.

Note. If you don’t have time to make dough, no problem! You can use pitas, tortillas or bagel thins… they all make great bases.

BAKE. Once you’ve got the dough rolled out, place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet, brush with olive oil and then spread my homemade pizza sauce over top. Sprinkle on some grated mozzarella cheese and bake them at 450 degrees until the crust is golden brown and cooked throughout.

DECORATE. Since you want to see the web design, it’s best to create that after the pizzas have been fully baked- that will prevent them from browning and spreading too much. Trust me, after a little trial and error I can attest to the fact that this method works best 🙂 Simply cut up your black olives into the body and legs and arrange them over the string cheese web.

Place the pizzas back into the oven until the cheese is melty and the web becomes visible.

Tips + Storing Info

Here are a few tips when making this spooky, scrumptious dish:

  • It is best to use active dry yeast when making the dough for this pizza, but if you are using instant yeast you will want to use 2 tsp, and add it to the dry ingredients instead.
  • If it is a little chilly in your kitchen you may run into some problems with your dough rising correctly. We suggest you boil some water and then carefully pour it into a pan or bowl and set it on the bottom rack in your oven. Place the bowl of dough on the rack just above this and close the door to your oven to let it rise. Another suggestion would be to preheat your oven to 300 degrees and set your bowl of dough on top of the oven in a warm spot to rise.  
  • Have fun with this pizza and top it with any of your family’s favorites such as mini pepperonis, sausage bits, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc.

STORE leftover pizzas in the fridge for up to 5 days when wrapped tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or stored in an airtight container.

To FREEZE leftovers make sure they have cooled first then store in an airtight freezer safe container or Ziploc freezer bag for 2-3 months.

To REHEAT leftovers warm for 20-30 seconds in the microwave or heat them up in a toaster oven to keep the bottoms crispier.

Mini Spooky Spider Pizzas with California Ripe Olives

Mini Spooky Spider Pizzas Recipe

Ingredients, honey whole wheat dough.

  • ▢ 2 cup all purpose flour
  • ▢ 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • ▢ 1/2 cup warm water
  • ▢ 1 1/4 cup room temperature water
  • ▢ 1 Tablespoon honey
  • ▢ 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ▢ 2 ½ teaspoon active yeast
  • ▢ 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ▢ 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • ▢ 1 clove garlic - minced
  • ▢ 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • ▢ 2 teaspoon sugar
  • ▢ 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • ▢ 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • ▢ 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ▢ mozzarella cheese - grated
  • ▢ mozzarella string cheese - in strips
  • ▢ olives

Instructions

  • In a 2-cup liquid measuring cup, add warm water and yeast and honey, allow to sit for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture begins to puff. Add the oil and the room temperature water. Whisk gently to combine.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment, combine salt, flours, and water mixture. When dough begins to form a ball, remove paddle attachment and replace with dough hook. With mixing speed on low, knead dough for 2-3 minutes or until a ball begins to form and the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Remove dough from bowl and place in a large well-greased bowl (I prefer using olive oil, but you can also use Pam). Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 2 hours.
  • To deflate dough, punch with fist. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and divide into balls (depending on how big and how many pizzas you want to make… this recipe can make up to 8 mini pizzas). Form into pizza shells and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • To make sauce, in a small saucepan heat olive oil until shiny. Add minced garlic, stir and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, sugar, basil, oregano and salt. Heat for 5 minutes or until the sauce becomes fragrant.
  • Spread sauce evenly over the pizza peel, leaving about 1½ inches around the edge for the crust. Lightly brush the crust with olive oil (this will help it get nice and crisp). Sprinkle grated cheese over top and bake at 450 degrees until the crust is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and place the string cheese into a web design, then place the black olives over top, creating spiders. Place back in the oven just until the cheese "web" has melted.

Halloween Spiderweb Pizza Recipe

Whether you are working from scratch or prefer a few time-saving options for the store, we’ve got you covered with this easy Halloween pizza recipe!

Ingredients (From Scratch or Store-Bought Options)

Main ingredients.

  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small (6-ounce) can of whole black olives, pitted (any size)
  • 4-8 sticks string cheese
  • pizza dough (storebought or  homemade ingredients below )
  • pizza sauce (storebought or  homemade ingredients below )

Homemade Pizza Dough Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups warm water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose or 00 flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon each dried basil, oregano, and marjoram

Homemade Pizza Sauce Ingredients

  •  2 tablespoons olive oil
  •  1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes
  •  1/4 cup grated (or finely minced) onions
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  •  1 teaspoon dried basil
  •  3 cloves pressed garlic
  •  2 teaspoons sugar
  •  1 teaspoon kosher salt
  •   Optional: 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions

Preparation.

Skip the pizza dough and pizza sauce preparation instructions if you have previously prepared or storebought options. 

Homemade Pizza Dough

  • In a little bowl, combine warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. Toss in the yeast and whisk it all together until dissolved. Just leave it sitting there until you see bubbles forming on the top.
  • Now, take a big bowl and mix together 3 cups of flour, salt, another teaspoon of sugar, and if you want, some dried herbs. Make a little hole in the middle and pour in the yeast mixture and some oil. Give it a good stir until it’s nice and smooth. * If it’s too sticky, just add enough extra flour until it becomes a soft dough. 
  • Place the dough on a floured surface, and squish! If the dough feels sticky, add a bit of flour until it becomes smooth and stretchy, which should take about 6-8 minutes. Toss the dough into a big, greased bowl, flipping it over so the top gets greased too.  
  • Cover it up and let it rise in a cozy spot for 30 minutes. Then pop the bowl in the fridge overnight and let it chill. Before you start rolling, your dough will need to have been removed from the fridge for at least 30 minutes thanks to baking best at room temp.

This is enough dough for 3 medium or 2 large pizzas (and many mini pizzas!).

So, if you only want to make one, go ahead and make the whole batch of dough, putting the extra in a sealed container for freezing.

Just let it thaw overnight when you want to use it. 

Homemade Pizza Sauce

  • Dump the tomatoes into a big bowl and, with fingers, kitchen scissors, or stick blender , mash them up until they’re chunky but not runny. 
  • Set a saucepan on medium heat and pour in some olive oil. Throw in the grated onions, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Let that pretty potion sizzle for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Now toss in the garlic and let it cook for another 30 seconds or so.
  • Add the mashed tomatoes with the sugar and salt. Let the sauce bubble, then turn down the heat to medium-low to simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • Give it a taste. If you want a stronger tomato flavor, you can keep simmering the sauce for another 15 minutes.

Any leftover sauce is good in the fridge for a week or in the freezer for 3 months.

Halloween Pizza

  • Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • If using homemade dough, roll it out on a nonstick baking sheet or pizza pan. If using a storebought crust, you can prep it on the counter as it will be going directly on the oven rack when ready.
  • Spread the pizza sauce and sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the crust.
  • Splitting the string cheese into thin strips, create a spiderweb atop the even layer of cheddar. Start placing the strips of cheese along the outer edge, then work your way inward.
  • Place 2 black olives together on the web, as these are the head and body of our spiders. Add as few or as many spider bodies as you’d like on your pizza.
  • Slice 1 black olive in half lengthwise, then into 8 thin strips to arrange around the two whole black olives on the pizza. These are the spider legs. Repeat until all olive bodies look like spiders.

  • If using a storebought pizza crust , place your pizza(s) in the oven directly on the oven rack. If using a homemade pizza crust, place your pizza(s) in the oven on a baking sheet or pizza pan .
  • Bake for approximately 15-18 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

  • If you went the mini pizza route, then plate individually with other spookily easy Halloween treats from Sarah Scoop!
  • Otherwise, cut the pizza into thin triangle slices to optimize the spider web motif. This looks good with plated up with salad and breadsticks , or other spooky eats by Sarah Scoop.

Tips and Variations

  • Make sure to heat oven fully before cooking your pizza, to ensure an evenly crispy crust.
  • Do  not place a pizza with homemade dough straight on the oven rack. Storebought crusts are typically par-baked beforehand and are far less likely to turn into a molten mess in the bottom of your oven. Homemade crusts are unequalled in taste but best baked on a sheet or pan.
  • Vegan or lactose intolerant? This recipe is so easy to adapt for your dietary preferences. Just use your favorite vegan cheese options instead.
  • Not in love with olives? You can easily create each Halloween spider with two mini pepperonis, slicing another mini (or full-size) pepperoni into eight legs.
  • Cheddar too sharp for your tastes? Use an even layer of shredded mozzarella instead, followed by a thin layer of pepperonis. Then arrange your string cheese web atop the pepperoni layer, nixing the cheddar while still allowing the white web to stand out.

Food for Thought

This Halloween pizza recipe is so fun and easy. Use storebought (or premade) mini pizza crusts to make it an easy edible party or class craft.

Don’t limit this yum to the season, either.

This spider web pizza was so popular at my daughter’s bug-themed birthday, it made a comeback at her brother’s Spiderman birthday … and again at her mad science party years later!

You won’t catch any flies with these webs, but you’ll catch plenty of eyes! Better have some recipe cards ready to hand out.

These adorably festive Halloween spider pizzas are so simple to make and taste absolutely delicious! They are perfect for a spooky gathering or lunch!

These adorable mini spider pizzas are perfect for your Halloween celebrations! With just a few simple ingredients they are vegetarian and fabulous served with a side of marinara for dipping.

I've seen several versions of Halloween pizzas over the years, many of which use English muffins as a base. I wanted to mix things up with a thin crust version that is easy to make, easy to eat and is perfect dipped in a little marinara sauce.

spooky spider pizzas

For this recipe you will need a baking sheet or pizza stone, a cutting board and a sharp knife.

You will also need a ring mold or small bowl to trace your cut out circles.

  • Pre-baked pizza crust: I recommend using a thin crust pizza crust such as Golden Home Ultra Thin Pizza Crust. You want to get one that doesn't have a pronounced crust so that you can get more circles out of every piece.
  • Pizza Sauce : My favorite is Raos Homemade Pizza Sauce but you can use any of your favorite brands or homemade versions.
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Canned black olive, whole and pitted

2 photos, the first shoes a pile of cut out crusts in a Halloween setting with a spooky tree and pumpkins, the second shows the crusts laid out with marinara sauce on them

I recommend serving these with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. They are also delicious served with ranch dressing.

This recipe works great as a snack, appetizer, lunch or even dinner for any festive Halloween gathering.

You can but you may need more then two crusts to get the same amount of pizzas and you'll need to adjust the cooking time by a couple minutes.

You definitely can and it actually may make the spider look a bit cleaner. I personally prefer the flavor and texture of the cooked olives but you can totally wait and add at the end.

Absolutely! This is a great party recipe and you can make as many as you need for your guests. Simply increase the amount of ingredients by how many servings you need and follow the instructions as written.

I highly recommend it as it will result in a crispier crust and a more evenly cooked pizza.

Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas

Get the kids cooking with these Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas. Made with a few store cupboard ingredients, they cook in less than 10 minutes!

spooky spider pizzas

Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas are the perfect spooky snack for your Halloween party!

They're a simple pizza dough, shaped into mini pizzas and topped with your favourite sauce and cheese. But it's the black olives shaped into spiders that make these pizzas special.

These easy-to-make pizzas are a great way to let the kids get creative, so set them up with the pizza dough and let them decorate their own!

To make your mini pizzas, you'll first make a simple dough using flour, yeast, salt and warm water.

Once the dough is kneaded and proved, you'll divide the dough into little balls and then squash them down with the flat of your hand to shape them into mini pizza bases.

You'll then top them with your favourite tomato sauce and pinch cheese. Cheddar works just fine, or you can go for mozzarella. You can even add in a little parmesan if you like.

I find it best for an adult to slice the olives unless your children are confident using a knife with supervision. Then you can let the kids take care of shaping the olives into spider toppings without any worries.

Once your Halloween Spider Pizzas are in the oven, you won't need to wait long! Simply bake for 5-7 minutes, and you're done.

Once the pizzas are cooked, I like to pop them onto a platter and serve them with a side of BBQ, hot sauce or marinara sauce for dipping. Then it's time for everyone to dig in!

spooky spider pizzas

So you see, with just a few ingredients, you can have these spooky Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas on the table in no time.

To help you get the spiders just right, I've included some clear pictures along with step-by-step instructions. So, follow the steps below for spooky spider pizzas in a flash!

  • Weighing scales
  • Measuring spoons
  • Large mixing bowl

  • Cover with a wet tea towel or cling film for an hour until doubled in size.

Shape the dough

  • Preheat the oven to 220C (200C fan, 430F).
  • Knock back the dough by tipping it on a lightly floured surface and kneading briefly to remove any larger air bubbles.

Make the spiders

  • Slice 15 olives lengthways and place one on each pizza. These are your spider abdomens.

  • Now slice 15 olives through the middle to give rounder shapes and place them at one end of each spider abdomen. These are your spider heads.

  • To make the legs, slice an olive in half lengthways, then cut each half into 4 long slivers. Arrange them around the spider's body. It looks good if you have four legs curving up and 4 curving down.

  • Place the trays in the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes until the dough is just taking on colour and is cooked through.

Pointers, tricks and troubleshooting tips for the perfect Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas

Are mini halloween spider pizzas easy to make.

Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas are a quick and easy way to get the kids in the kitchen and cooking! Made with just a few store cupboard ingredients, they're a cheap and easy activity for the little ones this Halloween.

To make your dough, you'll mix flour, water, yeast and sugar, kneading it into a smooth dough. Plus, if you have a stand mixer, this recipe is even easier as a dough hook will save you the time and effort on kneading.

Most of the time taken in this recipe is waiting for the dough to rise and prove. So while your dough sits, you can get to work slicing olives into slivers for the kids to shape into spiders.

Lay the toppings out in bowls, bring out your dough and divide it into 20 even-sized balls. Then you can give everyone a ball to shape into their own pizza.

You'll probably need to bake the pizzas in two batches, but they only take 5 minutes, so it won't affect serving times too much.

And that's it! Spooky, simple, tasty Halloween pizzas that all the family can make together!

If you have any questions, I hope this section helps. If not, pop me a comment below and I'll reply as soon as I can!

Will I need any special equipment to make these mini pizzas?

To make your mini pizzas you'll only need a pair of hands and some standard bits of kitchen kit (weighing scales/ measuring cups, bowls, knife, board and a baking sheet).

If you aren't a fan of kneading, feel free to use a stand mixer with a dough hook to mix your dough.

There's always a complete list of suggested equipment on the recipe card below my recipes if you're in doubt. 

I also always include links to example products to show exactly what I used to make each recipe.

spooky spider pizzas

What is the best pizza sauce?

I used a classic tomato pizza sauce for my Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas, but you could get creative and try a different flavour. BBQ sauce or pesto would both work really well.

If you want to make your own pizza sauce, plenty of recipes use canned tomatoes, onions and some herbs and spices. Go for it if you feel confident enough in the kitchen to freestyle your own pizza sauce!

Can I make my own pizza sauce?

If you want to make your own pizza sauce, it's really easy!

All you need to do is sweat 1/2 a medium-sized chopped onion with a pinch of salt for a few minutes until translucent and slightly golden.

Then add 3-4 chopped garlic cloves, and cook for a couple of minutes. Add any herbs you prefer at this stage - I love thyme, basil and oregano. You can add more or less garlic.

You could add some vegetables to get some extra goodness. Diced carrots and red peppers would add some extra sweetness and vitamin C. If you add vegetables, add a little extra liquid - as long as the mixture is loose but not like a broth.

Next, add 1 can of chopped or whole tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Fill half of the empty can with vegetable or chicken stock and add it to the pan. Then turn off the heat and let it cool.

Once it's cool, pour the mixture into a blender or food processor and blend it into a smooth sauce. If it's too thick, add a little water or stock - but remember you don't want it to be too liquid, or you'll have soggy pizzas. It should have a consistency similar to a store-bought pizza or pasta sauce.

Feel free to use red or white onion and any herbs you prefer. Some people like to add chilli to their sauce for a kick. Or you could even add some olives and capers for an extra layer of salty, savoury flavour.

This is just a rough guide. As long as your homemade pizza sauce has the right consistency and taste, there's no wrong way to make it! It's a quick (and cheap) fix if you can't get to the store.

What kind of olives should I use? 

For this recipe, you'll need to use black olives, so they look like spiders.

I much prefer the taste of black kalamata olives, but for a really dark black colour, black hojiblanca olives are best. They're the kind you find on classic takeaway pizzas.

Can I use a ball of mozzarella on my pizzas?

Grated mozzarella is best for pizzas, as it doesn't make your pizza too soggy because it's not quite as wet as a ball of mozzarella.

That doesn't mean you can't use a mozzarella ball - just that the results might differ slightly. To avoid a soggy pizza, you might want to slice your mozzarella ball and leave the slices on a plate lined with some kitchen paper in the fridge to dry out a little.

How can I tell if my mozzarella cheese has gone off?

When mozzarella cheese goes bad, it will develop dry patches and will start to harden. The texture will also become dry and crumbly. If it starts to smell sour or cheesy, it has gone bad, and you should throw it away.

How can I tell if my yeast isn't working?

If your yeast isn't working, your dough won't rise, and your pizzas will be dense. There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot this:

  • Make sure your yeast is still active by blooming it before you use it. To do this, mix 1 teaspoon of sugar with 1/4 cup of warm water and add 1 tablespoon of yeast. Let it sit for 10 minutes - if it doesn't start to foam up, your yeast is no longer active, and you'll need to get some new yeast.
  • Make sure you're using the right amount of yeast. If you use too much yeast, your dough will rise too quickly and then collapse. So it may be that your yeast is effective, just ineffectively used.

spooky spider pizzas

Can I use fresh yeast?

Yes, you can use fresh yeast in this recipe. Just make sure to bloom it first, as described above.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas suitable for vegetarians?

Yes! Though make sure that your mozzarella is vegetarian. Sometimes cheese can contain rennet, an animal-derived product unsuitable for vegetarians.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas suitable for vegans?

The mozzarella is the only ingredient in this recipe that is unsuitable for vegans. So, if you use vegan cheese, your pizzas will be suitable for vegans.

Vegan cheese has been reviled for years, and usually for good reason. However, in recent years some great plant-based cheeses have entered the market. Here are a few of my favourites:

  • The Melty One from Purezza - Created by vegan pizza restaurant, Purezza, it's perfect for pizza!
  • Violife Original (Grated) - This one isn't strictly a mozzarella, but it works well enough on pizzas. I find it best to heat it with a spoonful of cashew cream or vegan cream cheese to kick start the melting process before spooning it onto pizzas.
  • Nutritional Yeast - This one isn't technically a cheese but has a cheesy flavour. It's essential for sprinkling on top of vegan cheese to give it a realistically cheesy flavour!

Animal-derived products can be used to thicken, colour or flavour sweet and savoury food, so it sneaks into the most surprising ingredients! So always make sure that you double-check all of your ingredients labels to ensure that they are vegetarian.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas gluten-free?

This recipe uses wheat flour, so it isn't gluten-free. However, flour is the only ingredient you would need to substitute for a gluten-free version. So you could use a gluten-free pizza dough mix or premade gluten-free pizza bases.

Pizza typically relies on gluten for its texture, so a gluten-free flour wouldn't be effective at replicating that. I think a gluten-free pizza mix will produce the best results rather than using gluten-free flour.

Many supermarkets sell their own brand of gluten-free pizza dough mix or premade bases. I've heard good things about Schär's Gluten-Free Pizza Base Mix.

I haven't tried making a gluten-free version of this recipe, but

Double check all of your ingredients labels to make sure that they are gluten-free.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas keto-friendly?

No, Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas are not keto-friendly. This is because they contain wheat flour, which is a type of carbohydrate.

If you want to make a keto-friendly version of this recipe, you could use a low-carb pizza dough mix or premade low-carb pizza bases. There are many commercially available.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas suitable for those on a FODMAP diet?

Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas are not suitable for those on a FODMAP diet. This is because they contain mozzarella, which is high in lactose.

If you want to make a FODMAP-friendly version of this recipe, you could use a FODMAP-friendly cheese like goat's cheese or feta.

Wheat flour is also high in FODMAPs, but not because of gluten. Wheat flour contains fructose which is high in FODMAPs. So you would need to consider that if you look for a low FODMAP flour alternative.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas healthy?

Pizzas aren't considered super healthy, but this homemade version is probably much lower in sugar and fat than a storebought or takeout pizza.

Are Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas safe to eat while pregnant?

Yes, Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas are safe to eat while pregnant. However, you should always check your ingredient labels to ensure that the cheese is pasteurised.

Pregnant women are advised to avoid unpasteurised cheeses and foods containing them. This is because raw dairy can contain Listeria, a bacteria causing Listeriosis.

Make sure that all of your ingredients are in good condition and that you prepare this meal safely and hygienically.

Is Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas suitable for babies and toddlers?

If your baby is eating solids, you could feed them small pieces of this pizza so long as you leave out the salt and olives. The NHS explains why you shouldn't feed babies and toddlers salt here . 

Always give food at an appropriate size and shape for your baby or child. Cut small, round foods, like grapes and cherry tomatoes, into small pieces. Remember to keep babies supported upright while eating and supervise your baby when they’re eating in case they start to choke.

A Mummy Too does not give medical advice. Please speak to a health professional if you have any questions or concerns.

The NHS has some fantastic resources on their website on what to feed babies and young children.

What goes well with these mini pizzas?

These Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas are great on their own as part of a make-your-own pizza station. Or they would go well with my Halloween Salad for a bit of freshness.

Pizza always needs a good dip, so why don't you serve your mini pizzas with this Vegan Pumpkin Dip or my Red Pepper Dip ?

Can I make the Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas without olives?

If you or your little ones don't like olives, you could always leave them out.

You could use toppings like bell peppers or mushrooms to create some creepy-crawly shapes on top.

Or you could make this recipe at any time of year or for birthday parties using:

  • Ham, chicken or thinly sliced sausage
  • Pineapple, peppers and onions

How should I store these mini pizzas?

You can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can enjoy them cold, or if you reheat them, make sure they are piping hot.

How long will Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas keep?

Homemade pizza tends to go stale more quickly than storebought pizza, so it's best to enjoy your leftovers within 1-2 days of making them.

They should still be just as tasty for up to 2 days if you keep them in an airtight container in the fridge. They'll still be safe to eat for longer, but they will most likely become soggy or stale or somehow both at the same time.

Can I leave Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas out on the counter?

You shouldn't leave Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas out on the counter. They will become unsafe to eat within a couple of hours. So if you're serving them at a party, keep them in a warm oven until it's time to serve them.

Can I make Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas ahead?

Yes, Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas can be made ahead. You can prepare the dough and sauce up to a day in advance and store them in the fridge until you're ready to use them. Assembling the pizzas can also be done ahead of time, but they will need to be cooked before serving.

Can I keep Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas in the refrigerator?

Yes, Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas will keep in the fridge for 1-2 days. Just make sure to store them in an airtight container to prevent them from drying out or becoming soggy.

Can I freeze Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas?

Yes, you can freeze your Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas. Just make sure to wrap them tightly in cling film or aluminium foil, or place them in a freezer-safe container. They will keep for up to 3 months.

You can also freeze the uncooked pizza dough and defrost it in the fridge the day before you want to cook your pizzas. If you freeze your pizza after letting it rise, it's best to portion the dough into individual portions wrapped in cling film or freezer bags. Spray or roll the balls in some cooking oil so that they're easy to remove from the freezer bag at a later date.

When freezing pizza dough, make sure you label the bag with the stage you froze it. This helps you know whether it needs to prove or if it can be shaped straight away.

What is the best way to defrost these mini pizzas?

It might be better to cook your mini pizzas from frozen to keep them crisp. You may need to cover the top with foil to protect the toppings from burning.

They should take around 15 minutes at 180-200C (fan). However, this may vary depending on the thickness and amount of cheese - so test one pizza first and adjust the time or temperature accordingly.

If you froze the dough before it had a chance to rise, you'll need to defrost it in the fridge overnight. Then let it sit in a covered bowl or container until it reaches room temperature. Once it's fully defrosted, allow it to rise or double in size as the recipe steps state.

Or, if you let the dough before freezing it, you'll need to let it come to room temperature and then go straight to the shaping steps.

spooky spider pizzas

Can I make these Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas in a different quantity?

If you want to make more or less mini pizzas, then it's very easy. This recipe produces 20 mini pizzas, which sounds like a lot - but don't worry, they're so small that it won't feel like too much.

However, feel free to half or double the ingredients as you prefer. The cooking time won't be affected, as they cook individually.

It will take longer to get a very large amount of the dough to rise. You would probably struggle to get a doubled recipe in a mixing bowl, too. So you might need to make your pizzas in batches if increasing the recipe size.

A free recipe scale conversion calculator is a good option if you want to make a specific amount i.e. 32 pizzas. You simply copy and paste in the recipe ingredients/ existing size (20 pizzas) and then enter your desired portion.

The calculator will work everything for you at the touch of a button and give you an adjusted ingredients list. Simple!

Can I make these Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas as one big pizza?

Sure! I haven't made this as a large pizza, but it should work just fine.

A large pizza might take a few more minutes to cook, but there shouldn't be much difference in it if you don't make the pizza too thick.

For example, my full-sized Soda Bread Pizza takes just 10 minutes to cook at 180C (fan)/390F. So that could be a good method to try.

Can I make Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas in a stand mixer such as a KitchenAid or Kenwood Mixer?

A stand mixer with a dough hook attachment would be a great way to save your arm strength, as it will knead the dough for you.

Any stand mixer should do the job, but something like a KitchenAid or Kenwood is ideal as the motor can handle kneading dough without overheating.

Can I make Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas with a food processor?

The dough is much too dense for a food processor. So if you used a food processor to mix your dough, the food processor would probably seize up and break.

How can I make sure my Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas turn out perfectly?

I've given some basic tips and troubleshooting ideas above - but here are a few more things to consider for the perfect Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas:

  • Make sure your baking tray or pizza stone is preheated properly. This will help to get a crispy base on your pizzas. You could try preheating the oven for 30 minutes at 220C or your highest oven temperature. Then cook your pizzas for less time, similar to using a real pizza oven. I would only recommend this if you feel confident and can see through your oven door, as you'll need to judge this by sight.
  • If your dough is too sticky, add a little more flour - 1 tablespoon at a time - until it's no longer sticky. Conversely, if the dough is too dry, add a splash of water.
  • Try not to be too quick to add extra flour/water. Different kinds of flour can take longer to hydrate than others, so sometimes it just takes a little longer for the dough to come together. If you've been mixing/kneading for a few minutes and it just isn't happening, try adding extra flour/water as above.
  • Make sure you use olives in brine or oil, not cooking olives. Cooking olives are slightly dried and are much saltier. They're more suitable for use in stews and pasta sauces.
  • If you're using precooked alternative toppings (like meat or roasted veg), but the base isn't as crispy as you like, try cooking the pizzas for a few minutes without the toppings. Then add the toppings and cook for a minute or two more.

What kind of flour should I use for my pizzas?

Flour can vary in protein levels from 6-18% depending on factors like the type of wheat used, growing conditions, and fertilizer/ nitrogen levels.

Dough made with high protein flour is much more stable than dough made using flour with low protein, but it might need a little more kneading and extra water.

I used strong white bread flour from the UK, which has a higher protein content than plain flour. Though, confusingly strong white flour has a similar protein content to US all-purpose flour (12-13%).

So if you're in the UK, you should use strong white bread flour or 00 pizza flour. But all-purpose flour or pizza flour should work if you're in the US.

Why did my Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas turn out dry/crumbly?

If your Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas turned out dry, there could be a few reasons:

  • You didn't use enough water, or your dough was too dry. This could happen if you live in a particularly dry climate, as flour can absorb moisture from the air.
  • Or it might have been that your measuring cups/spoons were not level, resulting in too much flour being used.
  • You kneaded the dough too much. Kneading develops the gluten in the flour, which makes the dough tougher. So if you kneaded for longer than directed, this could have made your Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas dry and tough.

Why did my Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas turn out wet/soft/dense?

There are a few potential reasons for this:

  • You used too much water, or your dough was too wet. This could happen if you live in a particularly humid climate, as flour can absorb moisture from the air. It can also happen if you use flour which has been left open in the cupboard, where it's likely to absorb moisture.
  • Or it might have been that your measuring cups/spoons were not level, resulting in too little flour.

spooky spider pizzas

Why didn’t my Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas rise?

If your Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas didn't rise, it might be that your yeast was no longer active. Check the 'use by' date on your yeast packet/jar and make sure it hasn't expired. If it has, the yeast won't be active enough to make your dough rise.

You should also check that you used the right amount of yeast. Too much or too little can both prevent your dough from rising.

You can do a' yeast test' if you're unsure if your yeast is still active. Mix the yeast with a little sugar and some of the water called for in the recipe. Then wait 10 minutes. If the mixture starts to foam, your yeast is still good to use. If not, it's time to get some new yeast!

Another reason your Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas might not have risen is because the dough was too cold.

If it's winter or you live somewhere cold, you might need to keep the dough somewhere like a boiler room or in an oven set at 25C-30C. Though take care not to keep it somewhere so warm that it begins to cook.

How can I add/change the flavours in these mini pizzas?

There are lots of ways you can change the flavours in these Mini Halloween Spider Pizzas. Here are a few ideas:

  • Add garlic or other herbs to the dough for a flavourful base.
  • Try different combinations of cheese – why not try smoked cheese or goat's cheese?
  • Use alternative pizza sauce, like BBQ or even something like a creamy garlic and herb sauce.
  • You could even let the kids use familiar ingredients, like Babybels, Dairylea Triangles or Cheesestrings.

  • Put the flour, yeast and salt into a bowl and mix together.
  • Measure 200ml (6.8floz) of lukewarm water and pour two thirds into the bowl. Bring together with a wooden spoon or by hand. Add the remaining liquid little by little to mop up any remaining dry patches - you might not need it all.
  • Divide the dough into 20 balls.

Easy Mini Halloween Pizzas

spooky spider pizzas

Easy Mini Halloween Pizzas will delight your friends and family, young and old. They’re easy and fun to make with flour tortillas for the crust and decorations made with sliced cheeses and black olives.

Easy mini halloween pizzas

Let your imagination run wild with different decorating ideas. I’m showing you six ideas that were super easy to put together: Baby ghosts, mummy, Jack O’Lantern, Pac-Man ghost, spooky spider, and friendly ghost.

Ingredients and Tools Used

The thin and crispy crust, the pizza toppings, putting it all together, frequently asked questions, other halloween treats.

Ingredients for mini halloween pizzas

  • The Crust : I used flour tortillas brushed with olive oil for the thin and crispy crust for the mini pizzas.
  • The Pizza Sauce : I made my own pizza sauce, but you could use a store-bought variety.
  • The Toppings : I used both shredded and sliced Mozzarella cheese and sliced cheddar cheese for the toppings. I used black olives for the spider and decorations. Finally, I used a small piece of bell pepper for the Jack O’Lantern stem.

Tools to make toppings for Mini Halloween Pizzas

  • Ghosts and Cutouts : For the ghosts and Jack O’Lantern cutouts, I used cookie cutters. Specifically, I used an egg-shaped cookie cutter for the Pac-Man ghost and cut the zigzag bottom with kitchen shears.
  • Mummy : I used a pizza cutter for the mummy to cut thin strips of mozzarella cheese.

Did you know that flour tortillas make the perfect thin and crispy pizza crust? Since discovering this magic, I’ve used flour tortillas when I want a quick and easy pizza!

  • I started by cutting 4 ½ to 5-inch circles from 10-inch flour tortillas for the Mini Halloween Pizzas. The thinner the tortillas, the crispier the crust.

Cutting tortilla into smaller circles

  • Then, I brushed both sides of the tortilla circles with olive oil. Next, I heated both sides in a large skillet over medium heat until they were golden brown and crispy. This took 2 to 3 minutes per side.

I brown the tortillas as a head start to get the crispy crust!

Browning tortilla circles in skillet.

For the spooky spider pizza, I cut a large black olive in half for the top and bottom parts of the body. Then, I cut slices in half for the legs.

I used the baby ghost cookie cutter to make three baby ghosts from a slice of mozzarella cheese. Then, I used the friendly ghost cookie cutter to make one friendly ghost from another slice of mozzarella cheese. Finally, I used small pieces of black olives for the eyes and mouth.

I cut thin strips of mozzarella cheese for the mummy pizza and used two sliced black olives for the eyes.

For the Pac-Man ghost, I started by cutting a slice of mozzarella cheese with an egg-shaped cookie cutter. The slice of cheese was shorter than the cookie cutter, which was no problem. Next, I used kitchen shears to cut the zigzags at the bottom and sliced black olives for the eyes.

Finally, for the Jack O’Lantern pizza, I used a Jack O’Lantern or pumpkin cookie cutter with a slice of cheddar cheese. I cut the triangle eyes and the mouth from mozzarella cheese scraps and a small piece of bell pepper for the stem.

Decorated cheese for mini pizzas

Once the crust and pizza toppings were ready, I put the Mini Halloween Pizzas together.

I started by spreading two teaspoons of pizza sauce on each of the crusts I had placed on a large baking sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil.

Next, I added about two tablespoons of shredded mozzarella cheese to one of the pizzas. This was for the base of the spooky spider pizza.

I left the other pizzas un-topped. This is because I had learned from experience that the cheese cutouts blended too much when melted with a cheese topping below them. This resulted in everything running together. Trust me on this!

Mini Pizzas ready for oven

I popped the pizzas into a preheated 400°F oven for about 6 minutes. After 6 minutes, the cheese was nicely melted, and the pizza sauce was bubbling.

I removed the pizzas from the oven and added the toppings.

I built the spider on the pizza with the cheese. The melted cheese served to hold things in place.

I placed the different cheese toppings on the other pizzas. Then, I returned the pizzas to the oven for another minute to allow the cheeses to melt.

Pizza Toppings Added

Once the cheeses started melting, I removed the pizzas from the oven. I didn’t want the cheese to melt too much. The reason was that the pizzas would lose definition.

Pizzas out of oven

I ended up with six adorable Mini Halloween Pizzas. Each one was unique in its appearance. However, every one of them was amazingly delicious. Yum!

Easy Mini Halloween Pizzas

Initially, I thought street flour tortillas would be perfect for these tasty Halloween treats. The street tortillas were the correct size. However, at least the ones that I bought were quite thick. The result was a thick and chewy crust.

These pizzas are best eaten after they’ve cooled a bit from the oven. After that, they can be rewarmed just like regular pizza but aren’t quite as good. You can, however, prep all of the ingredients ahead of time so that all that’s left is putting the pizzas together.

The mini pizzas described here are just ideas. For example, the mummy and spooky spider pizza don’t require cookie cutters. In addition, you could use a glass to cut out the cheese for the Pac-Man ghost pizza. Use your imagination to create different designs!

When I first started experimenting with making these little pizzas, I topped each one with shredded mozzarella cheese and baked them like I would any pizza. Then, I added the different cheese cutouts. What happened was that the cheese cutouts blended in too much with the other cheese when they melted. You really couldn’t see the different designs that well.

  • Feel free to use store-bought pizza sauce instead of making your own.
  • I use Mission tortillas because they are quite thin. The thinner the flour tortillas, the crispier the pizza crust will be. You can also use smaller tortillas, but will have more waste.
  • Watch the pizzas carefully to ensure that the cheese doesn’t melt too much. You want the cheese to just start melting, leaving the different figures visable.

Halloween Pizzas

These spooky Halloween pizzas are quick and easy to make with my no-yeast Greek yogurt pizza crust! Kids and adults with love this fun twist on pizza night!

With Halloween just around the corner, I couldn’t resist adding a spooky twist to our pizza night. I mean, why have a regular pizza when you can turn the same recipe into these mini Halloween pizzas?

These spooky Halloween pizzas are so fun! I played around with a few different designs and think they are so darn cute!

Us oversized children loved these and I just know that little ones will go nuts over these mini pizzas! Perfect for a kid-friendly pizza dinner before heading out for trick or treating, and even more fun to get the kiddos involved into making them!

These Halloween themed pizzas are in 3 different designs. I opted for spiders, jack o’ lanterns, and a mummy. You can make a variety of designs or just stick with one. You could also switch up the toppings to suit your own preferences.

Halloween Pizzas with spider pizza design and jack o' lantern pizza design

Why you should make these Halloween Pizzas

  • they come together in just half an hour (start to finish)
  • the quick Greek yogurt crust is so easy to make and doesn’t require any pre-planning
  • they are pretty darn healthy (especially with added protein in the crust thanks to the yogurt!)
  • the designs are so fun and cute
  • kids will love making them and eating them
  • they taste delicious! I mean, they are pizza, after all!

Fun Halloween Pizza designs

As mentioned earlier, I opted for 3 simple designs: jack o’ lanterns, spiders, and a mummy.

Jack o' lantern pizza, spider pizza and mummy pizza designs for Halloween Pizzas

Jack o’ lantern pizzas

To decorate the jack o’ lanterns, I used pepperoni on one and peppers on the other for a vegetarian option. I simply cut the pepperoni and peppers into triangle shapes and then arranged them to form the face of each jack o’ lantern pizza. I also added the top stem of the green peppers to make a pumpkin stem. Although I just pick it off to eat the pizza, I think its a cute touch and makes them look more like a pumpkin.

Spider pizzas

To make the spider Halloween pizzas, the only toppings I used were sliced black olives. I tried to pick out the end pieces for the spider body because I didn’t want a hole in the middle, but you don’t have to be as picky as me! The legs were just sliced olives cut in half. This pizza design took the most time cause arranging the legs close to the body took a smidge more time, but it wasn’t that hard at all.

Mummy pizzas

I love the mummy pizzas so much and they are super simple. To start, I just baked a mini cheese pizza without any design on it. Once the pizza is baked (in the last 2 minutes of baking), I took out the baking sheet, added the olive eyes and then arranged the sliced cheese slices around it. Definitely the easiest design of all 3. I forgot to take a picture of the strips and eyes before I popped the pizza back in the oven, but you can still totally tell how I placed the strips as they are still visible!

Tips for making Halloween Pizzas

The pizza crust and designs are pretty easy to do but there are some things you can do to make your life easier and get the best results with your designs.

  • Use pre-shredded mozzarella. Make life easier by buying pre-shredded mozzarella or pre-shred your cheese so it is ready to go before dinner time!
  • Prep other ingredients in advance as well. If you are going to be making these on Halloween night (i.e. pre- trick or treating), I recommend prepping the other pizza ingredients as well. While it doesn’t take long to cut pepperoni or peppers into triangles, it will free up more of your time so you can get the littles ready in their costumes. You can slice them earlier that day or the night before and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • To make the mummy, start by baking a simple mini cheese pizza . I have tried making these mummies by arranging sliced cheese and the olives on a raw dough but they just don’t turn out the way I like them. After 15 minutes of baking, the cheese is completely melted and the “mummy strips” are no longer visible. To prevent this, bake a simple cheese pizza with just sauce and shredded cheese. Then in the last two minutes of baking, add the olive eyes and slices carefully on top and bake until melted.
  • Let the kiddos get in on designing their pizza toppings! Depending on the age of your kiddos, the jack o’ lantern design is probably the easiest to tackle with young ones. Kiddos can arrange the pre-cut peppers or pepperoni to form their own jack o’ lanterns faces. Kiddos can also do the spiders but will likely need some help arranging the little spider legs. [The mummy pizza is pretty easy to do too but is formed when the pizza is already baked so you may want to avoid having the kiddos near the hot pan.]

Spooky Halloween pizzas with spiders made out of black olives

What you need to make a yeast-free pizza dough

  • dried herbs (eg. oregano, basil, or thyme) for added flavour, optional
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • Greek yogurt

What you need to top Halloween Pizzas

  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • sliced mozzarella cheese (for each mummy pizza you do)
  • pizza sauce
  • pizza toppings (I used: black olives, green pepper, pepperoni)

How to make spooky Halloween Pizzas

For the pizza crust:.

  • Preheat oven to 425F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • To make the pizza dough, mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the yogurt and use a wooden spoon to mix well. The dough will be shaggy and sticky.
  • Transfer to a well floured surface and sprinkle with some flour. Fold the dough in on itself a few times and then form into a ball. Divide the ball into 4 portions and form each into a ball.
  • Place each ball onto the parchment paper lined baking sheet (2 to a sheet) and pressing down with your hands, shape them into a circle about 1/4″ thick.

Steps for Making No-Yeast Greek yogurt pizza dough

To top the pizzas:

  • Spread about 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce onto each crust, leaving 1/4″ border around the circle. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese.
  • Top the pizzas with the Halloween design you prefer. For the jack o’ lantern design, cut the pepperoni and peppers into triangle shapes. If you are doing the mummy do not top them yet. Instead, in the last 2 minutes of cooking, remove the pizzas from the oven and arrange the olive eyes and strips of cheese and then return to the oven. This will prevent the cheese from over-melting and loosing the shape of the strips.
  • Bake the pizzas for about 15-18 minutes or until cooked.

What You Need to Make a Halloween Spiderweb Pizza

First off, if you need a great  Homemade Pizza Dough recipe click here , I’ve been making this one for years. Shh! Don’t tell anyone but on occasion in the past, I have used Pillsbury’s canned pizza dough in the refrigerated section over by the yummy cookie dough.

  • USA Pizza Pan 
  • Rolling Pin
  • Spider cookie cutter
  • Flour for rolling
  • Pizza dough  
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese 
  • Pepperonis -large pepperonis are usually at the deli counter
  • Red or green bell peppers cut into long strips for legs
  • Green or black olives

On a tan kitchen counter top sits a ball of pizza dough, cup of flour and rolling pin sitting on a pizza pan. Next to the pan is a wooden cutting board with pepperonis, cheese, bell peppers, and pizza sauce.

Halloween Spiderweb Pizza -How to Video

Don’t you just love videos? It’s so much easier. More detailed step-by-step instructions are below.

How to make your Halloween Spiderweb Pizza step-by-step directions.

To get started making this yummy pizza we need to decide what the base will be. You can either buy some pizza dough, canned dough or make this Homemade Pizza Recipe. If you are wanting to buy mini pizza crusts in a pinch grab some bagels, english muffins, mini pizza crusts, or even sliced french bread would work great. 

Set out your large pizza pan or baking sheet while your oven preheats to 425 degrees. On a lightly floured surface roll out your pizza dough shape. Using a rolling pin roll out the soft dough into a circle shape, like a 12-inch circle. Once you have a circle shape we will work on the outside edge.

Working around the circle fold in a small outer edge and leave the edges in between at a point. The pizza shape should look similar to the spider web on Charlotte’s Web. Continue working around the pizza circle until you have a spider web shape. 

On tan kitchen countertop sits a silver pizza pan with rolled out dough that an adult hand is folding in the edges to look like a spiderweb.

When you have the spider web shape finished it’s time to add the toppings to your pizza. You can add alfredo sauce, olive oil with spices, homemade pizza sauce, or pasta sauce. Spread the sauce evenly around the pizza working from the center outward to the crust. 

If you love white onions, spinach, or any veggie you want to hide from your kids go ahead and add them now before the cheese goes on. Cut everything into smaller pieces to be sure the vegetables lay flat below the cheese. This way it’s covered and you can only see the fun pizza spider web design when it’s finished cooking. It’s a good thing that my kids love spinach on their pizza, that green might be harder to hide.

Now, sprinkle cheese on the pizza! Top the sauce with mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, or whatever mixture your family loves. Mozzarella cheese melts better than most other cheese so we usually stick with that kind. When you have the pizza topped with cheese it’s time to move onto the body of the spider. 

A spider web shaped pizza dough holds pizza sauce, then cheese, and a spider made from pepperonis, olives for eyes, and bell pepper for legs. The pizza is sat on a silver pizza pan on top of a tan kitchen counter.

Use two deli sized slices of pepperoni for your spider’s bodies. You can make this spider into two pieces, a head, and body, or just make a giant spider head like the body is behind and his eyes and face are looking at you. This is the perfect time for your kids to get involved in the cooking process. They would love to decorate their own spider bodies on their own spider web pizza. 

This is important:  Make sure to cut into the circle edges of your pepperonis to stop it from curling up when being baked.  Otherwise, your spider head will have a concave type body. To do this just cut inward 4 or 5 times around the circle pepperoni. This will help your spider to lay flat while cooking. 

Spider legs will be made from red bell peppers that have been cut into thin strips. You want to be able to see the legs but not have giant chunks sitting there. Lay the bell pepper slices under the peperoni slices working to get them just right. 

To make the eyes add 2 olives on top of the pepperonis for eyes. Use either black olives or green olives. If you want your spider to have red eyes like mine just cut a piece of bell pepper into small pieces and set two of them inside the rings of the olive eyes. 

A blue cutting board holds a small spider cookie cutter with cut out pepperoni spider shapes and pepperonis that are whole.

To make this pizza extra fun the kids and I decided to cut out tiny spiders.To cut out your tiny spiders use this cookie cutter or a set of kitchen sheers if you’re super creative. When I used this cookie cutter I was able to cut through 3 pepperonis at a time. This small sized pepperoni spiders works great on the mini spider pizzas.

Use the mini pizzas as an appetizer, a fun Halloween party food idea, for the next birthday party in your house, or for a Spiderman birthday party. When it comes to easy recipes you can’t get much easier than making these spider web pizzas on something already cooked like buns or bagels. 

Tan kitchen counter with a silver and gold rolling pin off to the side. A silver pizza pan holds a spider web shaped pizza with a large spider made of pepperonis, bell peppers, and olives, Small cut spider pepperonis are scattered around the large spider.

Cook your pizza for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven on the center oven rack. If the pepperonis are greezy then just dab it off with a paper towel when the pizza is finished cooking. Let the pizza cool before serving it to the children. 

When it comes to Halloween recipes this one is one of the best. You can even make this pizza with a frozen pizza by rearranging the toppings and maybe adding a few ingredients.  While the pizza is cooking you can start on this mouth watering Halloween Cookie Pizza or this Pumpkin Spice Spiderweb Pizza that is sure to get your kids to clean their rooms so they can get one.

Halloween Spiderweb Pizza

Simple and fun pizza to make with your kids. 

Ingredients

  • 1 batch Fresh pizza dough
  • 1 lb Mozzerella Cheese grated
  • 1 Red bell pepper sliced into long strips
  • 1 jar Pizza sauce
  • 1/2 lb Pepperonis deli sliced thin
  • 1 can Olives (black or green) sliced into coins

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

Sprinkle a little flour to prevent your dough from sticking to the pan. Roll out your fresh pizza dough to the edges of your pan while watching the thickness too thick and it could come out doughy too thin and you could have a giant cracker. 

Starting on the side closest to you turn in about a 3 to 4-inch portion keep turning inward until you have an octagon type shape. Now go back and pinch each point to make sure they stay put. 

Using a spoon spread out your pizza sauce then cover with cheese. 

Take one large pepperoni and make 4 cuts around the edges 1/4 inch in to prevent curling while baking. Next, you will need 8 slices of red bell peppers tucking 4 legs on each side.  For your spider’s eyes take as many slices of your olives as you want. Spiders do have lots of eyes so let your child decided how many. 

  • Now it’s spider time using a cookie cutter or a pair of kitchen scissors cut out your small spiders. You will need enough to spread over your pizza try to make them look like they’re crawling away or let your child go crazy decorating. 

When your masterpiece is finished put it in your oven for 12-16 minutes checking after 12 minutes. Ovens cook differently so keep a close eye not to burn it. 

Let cool then slice and Enjoy!

Ingredients for Ghost Pizza.

Ingredient Notes

  • Pizza Dough: What would be a pizza without dough? You can either use a store-bought dough that's ready to go, or you can make your own using our easy vegan pizza dough recipe. Our favorite stores to get fresh pizza dough at are WinCo and Harmons, and Trader Joe's!
  • Vegan Mozzarella Cheese:  Unlike regular dairy-based cheese, it doesn't get too melty and helps our ghost friends keep their shape on the pizza. Plus, being vegan is like giving a friendly hug to the planet and all its creatures. So, we're not only making delicious pizza but also doing something kind for our world! Read our 7 Reasons to go vegan to learn more about why going vegan is so important for our future.
  • Black and Green Olives:  We use black and green olives to create spooky spider shapes. They add a little surprise and a lot of fun to our ghostly pizza!

See the recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.

Are you looking for substitutions or quicker alternatives? We got you!

  • Pizza Dough:  Instead of making dough from scratch, you can use pre-made store-bought pizza dough for convenience. If you are looking for a gluten-free option use gluten-free pizza crusts made from rice flour, almond flour, tapioca starch, or a combination of gluten-free flours. Another great GF option is cauliflower crust!
  • Marinara Sauce:  You can use any tomato-based pasta sauce as a substitute for the marinara tomato sauce. Other sauce options include pesto, homemade vegan alfredo sauce , or store-bought marinara sauce.
  • Italian Seasoning:  If you don't have Italian seasoning, you can make your own by mixing equal parts of dried oregano, dried basil, dried thyme, dried rosemary, and dried parsley.
  • Vegan Mozzarella Cheese:  If you can't find Miyoko's vegan mozzarella cheese , you can use any other brand of mozzarella that you like, or make vegan mozzarella at home from scratch. Another option is to opt for cheese slices, for example, Daiya's vegan cheese slices .
  • Olives:  If you're not a fan of olives or prefer other toppings, omit them entirely or get creative with your choices. Sliced mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, or even vegan pepperoni could be great alternatives.

Enjoy exploring different variations and discovering your favorite twist on this scrumptious and spooktacular recipe. Remember, substitutions will bring their own unique flavors and textures to this ghost pizza recipe!

Spooky Ghost Pizza for Halloween with olive spiders.

There are many delicious flavor variations to explore with this ghost pizza for Halloween! Here are a few ideas to play around with to zing up the flavor of your Halloween pizza party:

  • Marinara sauce: For more flavor feel free to add garlic and onion powder, and salt to taste.
  • BBQ: Instead of marinara sauce, use your favorite vegan BBQ sauce. Other topping ideas for this flavor include vegan cheddar cheese slices, caramelized onions and smoky tempeh bacon.
  • Spicy: Add a kick with a drizzle of hot sauce on top of the marinara sauce. Use vegan pepper jack cheese slices to make the ghosts, sliced jalapeños, and red onion.
  • Garlic: Mix minced garlic into the marinara sauce for an extra punch. Top with roasted garlic cloves, caramelized onions, and sprinkles of vegan parmesan.
  • Mexican-Inspired: Use spicy tomato salsa as the base. Top with vegan taco meat , black beans, corn, and avocado slices, before you top everything off with ghost-shaped cheese pieces.
  • Buffalo Cauliflower:  Add roasted buffalo cauliflower florets and drizzle with vegan ranch dressing for a tangy twist.

To make a ghostly pizza you need a few kitchen items! First, you need  mixing bowls for combining ingredients like flour, yeast, and water if you are making the pizza dough from scratch. To accurately measure ingredients we always recommend using a scale . You also need a baking tray to bake the pizzas. We love a round tray , specifically for pizzas!

To make the ghost-shaped cheese, we recommend using a small ghost-shaped cookie cutter (use their smallest size). However, cutting them out by hand with a paring or small kitchen knife  is another option. To prepare the cheese ghost, and olive spiders use a cutting board ! Last but not least, don't forget your pizza cutter and oven mitts  to handle hot baking trays and pizzas safely.

👩🏽‍🍳 How To Make Ghost Pizza

Let's chat about how to make the best ghost pizza!

Start by preparing your pizza dough, whether you are using homemade dough or a store-bought variety, there are a few things to do. Please remember that many pizza doughs have to be prepared a day ahead! You can follow our easy-to-make vegan pizza dough recipe if you want to make yours from scratch. Make sure to follow the package instructions if you are using a store-bought crust.

Spreading pizza dough.

1. While your oven is preheating coat the tray and your hands in semolina flour. Spread out the dough into a 14” pizza, which is Ø35cm. Shape it into a thin round base by pressing and pulling.

Mixing Italian herbs with tomato sauce.

2. Pour marinara sauce into a small bowl and add Italian seasoning. Stir and let it sit to enhance flavors.

3. Thinly slice the mozzarella cheese wheel.

1. To cut the olives into spider shapes: cut one olive in half for the body.

Cutting olive halves into thin slices.

2. Cut another olive in half, and then into 8 slices for the legs. Continue steps 1 and 2 until you have enough for several olive spiders.

Assembling olive spiders on pizza.

4. Assemble olive spiders as desired on your pizza for an extra spooky touch. Place one olive half on the pizza, which resembles the body. Then assemble the leg slices around it.

5. Reduce the oven temperature to 425°F (which is 220°C), slide your pizza in, and bake for 15 minutes or until baked through and the sides of the crust are browned.

  • Once baked, sprinkle the pizza with more Italian seasoning and optionally with some more olive oil.

✨ Sprinkle's Expert Tips ✨

  • Do not roll the dough out with a rolling pin, as it can compress and remove the air, leading to a dense and less airy crust.
  • While creativity is great, don't overload your pizza with toppings to avoid a soggy pizza crust.
  • Using food tweezers can be helpful for assembling the olive spiders!
  • Don't let cheese scraps go to waste! Grate or chop them for vegan omelets, quesadillas, and sandwiches, melt them into pasta dishes, or use them in cheesy bread recipes. For more food-saving ideas, check out our food waste guide .

Serving your ghostly pizza is a fun and engaging experience. Here are some of our favorite serving ideas to complement your ghost pizza for Halloween:

  • Spooky Presentation: For the perfect presentation arrange the ghost pizza on a black serving platter for a spooky effect. Or serve it with more Halloween snacks on a Halloween-themed vegan charcuterie board .
  • Spooky Buffet: Set up a Halloween-themed buffet with a ghost pizza as the centerpiece. Alternatively, make mini ghost pizzas instead of one large one! Include other themed snacks and treats like "witches' fingers" (carrot sticks with almond slice nails), "eyeball" fruit skewers, and "mummy" cookies .
  • Halloween Tablecloth: Lay out a Halloween-themed tablecloth or runner to enhance the festive atmosphere.
  • Customizable Toppings: Provide a variety of (vegan toppings and let guests customize their own ghost pizza slices. This interactive approach can be a hit at parties.
  • Themed Plates: Use ghost-shaped or other Halloween-themed plates and napkins to tie in with the theme.
  • Boo-tiful Beverage: Pair the ghostly pizza with a spooky drink, like a "blood" red punch or a dark purple mocktail.

Remember, presentation is key to enhancing the Halloween spirit of your ghost pizza gathering. Have fun and get creative with your serving ideas! We'd love to see your creations, so make sure to tag @thesimplesprinkle on socials.

We got ours on Amazon and used the smallest size of these ghost-shaped cookie cutters . As an alternative, you can make a stencil out of cardboard yourself and cut the cheese into ghost shapes by hand. Use a small kitchen knife then, like a paring knife.

You can call it "Spooky Slice," "Haunted Pizza," "Creepy Crust," or something similar to give it a Halloween-themed name, such as "Ghost Pizza" or "Ghostly Pizza". Let your imagination run wild and come up with a creative name that captures the fun and spirit of Halloween!

Dressing a pizza for Halloween is a fun way to celebrate the spooky season. As we learned in this blog post it is very easy to turn a regular pizza into a spooky treat by arranging toppings creatively. Other ideas in addition to a spooky Ghost pizza include a spider web design with olives or peppers, making a pumpkin face using sauces and veggies, or creating a mummy look with cheese strips and olive eyes. You can also shape the pizza dough into spooky shapes, for example, a cauldron, and then use dark toppings, or craft broomsticks from (vegan) cheese sticks. Be sure to use safe and tasty toppings for your themed pizza.

Storage:  If you have leftovers, plan to consume them within a day or two. You can refrigerate any leftovers. Place the cooled pizza in an airtight container or wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. This will help prevent moisture from making the crust soggy.

Reheating leftovers:  To reheat pizza from the fridge, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C), place the slices or whole pizza on a baking sheet, and heat for about 10-20 minutes, checking for soft cheese and a warm center. For a crispier crust, broil briefly before removing and enjoying.

Freezing:  This recipe tastes best fresh! We do not recommend freezing any leftovers.

Recipe Tips And Variations 

Make ahead – spider web pizza.

When making ahead of time we serve these as a cold pizza snack. If you make ahead, cook, cool quickly and then store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Alternatively, just prep the pizzas so they’re ready to cook. Add the toppings, store in the fridge in an air tight container or trays wrapped in cling film. Then cook and serve.

You can make them up to 1-day in advance.

Different Toppings

You can get creative in the kitchen and use different toppings to make your spider shapes from. You could try mushrooms or peppers to make the spiders. And if you fancy a kick of heat, sprinkle over some red pepper flakes.

I don’t recommend using mozzarella cheese as it tends to melt more and ruin the spider web pattern.

Can I Use Pizza Dough To Make Spider Web Pizza?

Yes, if you prefer you can make larger versions of these mini pizzas using sheets of ready to use pizza dough, or ready to top round pizza bases in stead of English muffins.

Can I Make Them Gluten Free?

Yes, and it’s really easy! Just swap the English muffins for a gluten free version and double check that all the toppings you use are labelled up as gluten-free too.

Vegan Mini Spider Pizzas

You can swap this to be a vegan pizza, just use vegan cheese and make sure all other ingredients you choose are vegan too.

Can I Bake Pizza Muffins In The Oven?

Yes, if you prefer to bake these little spider pizza in the oven, you can place them on a baking sheet and cook at 200C for around 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and turning golden.

If you’re cooking a large batch of pizza muffins, then oven baking is probably easier than the grill.

Can I Cook Them In The Air Fryer?

No, the toppings are too light, the air circulation in the air fryer is too strong and blows the toppings off!
