Halloween Pizza

On Halloween day my little Luca is having a party at school and all the parents are organizing a potluck: I have been thinking about a savory plate that can be served to the kids even at room temperature (I’m not sure we will be able to reheat the food) and of course, on the healthy side. In addition to that should be something the kids will eat without problems, possibly a finger food or easy to handle…nut free 😉

I decided to go with an Homemade pizza with tomato sauce and mozzarella, dressed-up for Halloween.


The recipe is super simple (I can prepare the pizza even the night before and bake it right before going to school, it only takes 18min to cook). I will cut the pizza in kid size squares before leaving and I will wrap the pizza tray in some aluminum foil and keep it in an insulated bag, the big ones that you use at the grocery store to take home frozen food 😉

That should work 😉

For the ingredients you have few options:

  • you can prepare your homemade pizza dough (here you are my recipe) or simply buy one at the grocery store
  • you can prepare your homemade tomato sauce (here you are my recipe, I always have a jar in the freezer) or buy one at the grocery store (low sodium is better)
  • in addition to the provola cheese you can really add any other ingredient you think your kids will like. I was thinking maybe some spiders done with black olives…
Halloween Pizza
  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 12 slices provola cheese
  • capers for decoration
  • 4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  1. Roll the pizza dough in the baking tray with your hands, place few tablespoons of oil at the bottom to let the pizza dough slide and not stick to it
  2. When the pizza dough is nicely flat, spread the tomato sauce on top
  3. Bake the pizza in preheated oven at F425/200C for 15min
  4. Meanwhile using some Halloween cookie cutters, cut out some Halloween shapes from the provola cheese slices
  5. Remove the pizza (almost cooked) from the oven and decorate the surface with the provola cheese shapes
  6. Place the pizza back in the oven for 3 minutes
  7. Decorate with some capers or olives
  8. Enjoy!
