Halloween is hands down one of my very favorite holidays for food and crafts both. Between marbling a pumpkin, creating Frankenstein handprints, and of course, scary apple bites, there are chances for unlimited creativity this month. That being said, sometimes it’s hard to find non-candy options that bring Halloween into the everyday, which is why I wanted to share with you a fun dinner that your kids can get in on- Mini Mummy Style Pizzas with English Muffins! This recipe, along with other fun Halloween Recipes, was published with permission from Family Fun more than 7 years ago! At the time we had no images so we thought it would be fun to bring back the recipe and this time include some images so you know what to expect.
These easy mummy pizzas can almost entirely be made with low supervision and kids love to eat what they make, so it’s a win/win. We used black olives for the eyes, but feel free to get creative with other pizza toppings.
Mini Mummy Pizza with English Muffins
- English muffins
- Pizza sauce
- Black olives
- Red or green pepper
- Cheese sticks or slices
1. Heat the oven to 350° F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like).
2. Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils.
3. Lay strips of cheese (or a pulled-apart cheese stick) across the muffin for the mummy’s wrappings.
4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.
