1 8 oz. bag mozzarella & cheddar cheese mix
1 container pizza
1 Green pepper
Any other veggies you'd like.
Jack-O-Lantern cookie sheet
Following the instructions on the pizza crust tube for
pre-baking the crust after you shape it to the Jack-O-Lantern pan. After the crust is
done, cover it with the pizza sauce of your choice, add pepperoni and any veggies you
Cover liberally with the
cheddar / mozzarella cheese mix, making sure to cover anything underneath it. Cut green
peppers in to thin slivers, save a larger piece to make the stem. Lay pieces out to make
the indentations of the pumpkin. Cut pieces of pepperoni to make the eyes, nose and
mouth of the Jack-O-Lantern. You could also use a yellow pepper to do this for variation
on a meatless pizza. Here's what mine looks like before baking.
Bake according to the
instructions on the pizza crust wrapper, usually about 20 minutes, but you'll know when
it's done. The cheese will be all bubbly and the crust will be golden! It looks so yummy,
you won't be able to wait to taste it and, maybe, share with all my spooky friends!
The finished pizza! It's almost
too cute to cut! But never fear, with your trusty pizza cutter or a sharp knife, you can
carve this Jack-O-Lantern just as easy as the real ones. And this one is much more fun to
eat! Serve hot, while the cheese is still soft.
You could do this using a solid pizza crust, it won't be as cute
since it won't be a pumpkin shape but you can still make a Jack-O-Lantern face.
