Halloween Pizza Ideas Recipe Variations

  • You could also try pre-made naan bread or pita bread for the crusts. Just brush them with a little olive oil before adding the toppings.
  • For a fun twist, use different pizza sauces like garlic Alfredo or even BBQ sauce.
  • Try shredded cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella to make these pizzas extra spooky. The orange color will be perfect for Halloween!

Storage Instructions

Leftover pizzas can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 350º oven until warm, about 5-7 minutes.

However, the dough will only last in the fridge for 1-2 days, so if you plan on making all 4 types of mini pizzas, I recommend making the dough fresh each time.

You can also freeze the unbaked pizza dough balls. Simply place the dough balls in a freezer bag and freeze them for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before using.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make vegan Halloween pizzas?

It’s easy to enjoy this as a vegan Halloween pizza recipe. The dough recipe below is vegan-friendly; you can simply swap your favorite dairy-free cheese substitute for traditional mozzarella. Or, feel free to leave off the cheese entirely for a healthier cheese-less pizza!

How long will leftovers last?

Halloween mini pizzas will get gobbled up quickly by your little goblins, but if there are any leftovers, they’ll keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just be sure to store in an airtight container after the pizzas have completely cooled.

What other Halloween pizza idea variations do you recommend?

There are lots of ways to personalize these mini Halloween pizzas!

For instance, try using a creamy white Alfredo sauce instead of classic marinara pizza sauce.

Another delicious, unique pizza crust option, try this Sourdough Pizza Crust recipe – no yeast required! It’s a great way to use that sourdough discard.

Equipment

  • plastic wrap to cover the dough
  • Parchment Paper

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough (there are 3 loaves in a bag)
  • flour for the counter

Instructions

Thaw frozen dough

  • Let dough thaw overnight in the refrigerator (see here for other ways to thaw frozen dough). Once thawed, cover it with oiled plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes to 90 minutes before shaping pizzas.

Shape and stretch the dough

  • Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
  • Divide the pre-made pizza dough into four equal pieces. Shape each piece into a dough ball. Lightly flour your countertop. It is best to stretch the dough by hand by stretching it with your hands. Use your upturned hands to gently pull the dough from underneath in an outward motion. You can also use a floured rolling pin to shape the dough into a round crust.
  • When the crust is about 7-8 inches round, transfer it to a pizza pan or pizza stone lined with parchment paper. Make the Halloween themed pizza of your choice (see notes for how to make a spider pizza, mummy pizza, pumpkin or jack o' lantern, or ghost pizza).
  • Bake the pizza at 450º F for 7-9 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the crust are golden. Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
