what you'll need

  • 1 recipe homemade pizza dough or einkorn pizza dough
  • marinara sauce or your favorite bottled pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • mushrooms sliced
  • pepperoni
  • string cheese
  • crackers
  • canned cheese
  • 1 small head broccoli
  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 1 small tomato diced, small
  • black olives sliced

let's do it

  • Place pizza stone in oven and heat to 500 degrees.
  • Thirty minutes before baking, bring pizza dough to room temperature. Roll out dough to large rectangle approximately 16" x 10". The dough will remain fairly thick. If the dough resists rolling out, let it rest 5 minutes and try again. Cover a rimless cookie sheet with cornmeal. Transfer the dough to the cookie sheet. Jiggle the sheet to make sure the dough is not sticking to it.
  • Cover the dough with marinara or pizza sauce then scatter shredded mozzarella over everything. Next, decide how many ‘graves’ you want on top. For each grave, you will need a small piece of mushroom covered by a slice of pepperoni. The mushroom will create the ‘hump’ of the grave. Squaring off the pepperoni will also make it appear more grave-like. Place the graves randomly—a messy graveyard is scarier than one that is perfectly lined up. Pull strips of cheese from the string cheese and create a crosshatch on top of each grave to help set them apart.
  • Bake the pizza for 8–10 minutes
  • While the pizza is baking, lay out crackers to serve as headstones for your graves. Place the spreadable cheese in a piping bag or storage bag with a tiny opening. Pipe the letters R I P on each cracker.
  • When the pizza is baked, remove from the oven and immediately insert the crackers at the head of each grave. Again, be messy—it’s scarier!
  • Scatter small bits of veggies around your graveyard and serve! Happy Halloween!

One Last Thing

Crackers make the perfect headstones for your pizza. Look for a variety pack so you can have multiple shapes displayed to play with.
