Mini Spider Pizzas: An Easy Recipe For Halloween

If you're planning an appetizer or buffet to celebrate Halloween, we suggest you discover an easy recipe that will be a hit with your guests, including the youngest. Here is the recipe for mini spider pizzas. Even if they are decorated with a spider, no one will be afraid to devour them!

Ingredients

Here are the ingredients needed to make 6 mini spider pizzas for Halloween:

a roll of thin, rectangular pizza dough
a can of tomato pulp
a piece of Emmental cheese or Grana Padano cheese
black olives
dried oregano
dried basil
garlic powder
olive oil
salt and pepper

Preparation

For the topping of these mini spider pizzas, I simply used tomato puree, cheese and olives.

But nothing prevents you from adding small pieces of ham or mushrooms if you feel like it. To keep the look the same, just hide these extra ingredients under the tomato sauce.

1- Pour a drizzle of olive oil into a hot pan and add the tomato pulp.

2- Reduce the tomato pulp for about 30 minutes until you have a thick tomato puree.

3- Season this tomato sauce with salt, pepper, dried basil and garlic semolina.

4- Grate the cheese of your choice with a large hole grater so as to obtain long strands of cheese.

5- If your black olives are not pitted, pit them.

Assembly

To make these mini spider pizzas, I used a round cookie cutter about 10 cm in diameter.

This attachment allowed me to cut 5 individual pizzas from the rectangular dough and make another small pizza from the scraps.

1- Unroll the pizza dough and use the cookie cutter to cut out 5 discs of dough about 10 cm in diameter.

2- Coat each disc of dough with about a tablespoon of tomato puree.

3- Then arrange the cheese strands in a spider web pattern.

To note: to make this shape, we advise you to first form a hexagon around the edge of the pizza, then complete with parallel lines and crosses inside the hexagon.

4- Add a spider to each of the mini pizzas.

Simply cut the olives in half to make the body of the spider, use a smaller piece to make the head and cut the remaining olives into thin strips to make the legs.

I tried to give each spider 8 legs as it is in nature, but of course you can use less to simplify the task.

5- To finish, add a few drops of olive oil on each mini pizza and sprinkle with dried oregano.

Cooking

1- Preheat your oven to 200°C.

2- Bake the mini pizzas for 12 to 15 minutes, keeping an eye on the colour of the dough.
