Friendly and Fun Food for Halloween

My kids rarely ask for a specific food unless it is donuts, cookies, ice cream… well you get the point. So I was excited when my son asked me to make the mummy pizza that we had last Halloween.

The mummy look isn’t only for trick or treating. Disguising a mini pizza as a spooky mummy not only looks cool, but it can be an opportunity to masquerade the meal with extra nutrients.

What You Need:

English muffin or Boboli pizza bread

Favorite pizza sauce or pasta sauce

Pumpkin puree

String cheese or cheese slices

Diced black olives

Green or red peppers

What To Do:

1. Heat the oven to 350º F (these are also easily microwavable). For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pumpkin puree onto half of an English muffin or pizza bread and spoon on enough pizza sauce to cover the puree.

2. Set olive slices in place for the eyes and add round slices of red or green pepper for pupils.

3. Lay strips of cheese across the muffin or pizza bread for the mummy’s wrappings.

4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
