Ghoulish ghosts, manic mummies and vicious vampires - these Halloween pizzas have it all. They would be perfect if you are hosting a little Halloween party for kids (or even adults).
Why you will love them
- Easy - These Halloween pizzas are made using a store bought cheese and tomato base, so they are so quick and easy to make.
- Easy to adapt - Whatever your favourite pizza toppings are, you can find a way to put them on and make them spooky.
- Great for getting kids involved in the kitchen - If you want your kids to take more interest in helping out in the kitchen, then these Halloween pizzas are a great place to start, as they are very easy.
- Perfect for a Halloween party - If you are hosing a party this Halloween, these are perfect to make as they are quick, cheap and you can easily make bigger ones to feed more people.
- 3 cheese and tomato pizza bases - we wanted a really quick and easy Halloween themed dinner that the kids would love, so we used ready made cheese and tomato pizza bases and then topped them ourselves. You could make your own pizzas though, and we have give some more options for that below.
- Cheese slices - there is so much that you can do with a cheese slice when it comes for decoration for a Halloween pizza. You want to use something that will melt well. We used mozzarella, but cheddar, Swiss and gouda will all work well.
- Ham - this is great for things like hair on the faces. Try to go for the best quality ham you can get - going to your local butchers is always a good bet.
- Olives - these help to make eyes and noses. Add some extra flavour with garlic and herb olives, or ones that are stuffed.

What is a Halloween pizza?
It is pretty much much it sounds like - Halloween themed pizza. We went with ghosts, vampires and mummies, but there are so many options when it comes to scary faces. Let the whole family get creative and make their own Make it a competition for who can make the scariest.
We saved time by using a store bought cheese and tomato, however you can go all out and make your own. Why not use our Whole Wheat Pizza Dough and Easy Pizza Sauce to make the pizzas and then go wild with the toppings.
We kept it simple with cheese, ham and olives to make faces, however there are lots of other topping options that can make other faces, animals or scary things. Here are some of our favourites:
- Spider - you could use just olives to make lots of mini spiders on the pizza. Or you could make one big spider with chopped chicken for the body and thin bacon rashers for the legs. Plus, chicken and bacon is a delicious pizza combination. Why not add some BBQ sauce too.
- Eyeballs - make some spooky eye balls with some mini meatballs with little rounds of mozzarella and olives on them. You could use small balls of mozzarella too.
- Monsters - there are options when it comes to making monsters. Get your favourite veg and chop in to eyes, noses and mouths and add some slices of pepperoni too. This is an opportunity to get really creative.
- Pumpkins - you could cut round the pizza base itself to make a pumpkin shape and then use cheese, meat and vegetables to make the eyes and mouth of the pumpkin.

Whilst pizza isn't an every day food for us, I think it is a good opportunity to add some extra vegetables. Especially when it comes to making spooky favourites. It's a good time to introduce kids to new vegetables too.
