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 already vegan-friendly, and 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.

To make pizza, place each dough ball on a lightly floured surface and use your fingers to stretch it gently, then your hands to shape it into rounds or squares. Top with your favorite toppings, and bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes individual pizzas and 20 minutes or so for a full-size.
