Making pizza jack o’lanterns is a family tradition around Halloween. Mom would make the pizza dough, and then we each got a portion to roll out and decorate however we liked. We’d have bowls of toppings to choose from, and the family would sit at the table and talk and decorate to our hearts’ content. Then we’d pop the pizzas in the oven and eat them for dinner. I loved it!

This is a tradition I’ve carried on with my family. Alex even participates by putting toppings on his (Mommy or Daddy have to do the rolling and handle the pizza sauce and such). I usually stick with jack o’lanterns, since that’s what we made as kids, but this year, I decided to branch out and try a ghost or two. What do you guys think?

I’m kind of a fan. This is a super easy recipe/activity. I use this pizza dough from Sugar Dish Me, but you’re welcome to use your own favorite pizza dough. I also make my own sauce, and I’ll include the recipe for that below, but any pizza sauce you like will also do. My family opted to go vegetarian this year (mostly because I forgot to buy the pepperonis!), but you could include meats in this. We used to use pepperonis to make the eyes and noses of our pumpkins and would cut them with a knife or some shears to get the right shape. This year, we stuck to tomatoes and green peppers and some creative cutting with a knife.
