My jack-o-lantern pizza is cute and fun, and it makes a big impact; but not many kids will actually want to eat the olives used for the decoration. Jeremy loves them and always has; his friends wanted every microscopic molecule of the black stuff wiped off before they'd eat a slice ... sigh.
This is another in my week's worth of Hallowe'en "recipes" which really isn't much beyond a list of instructions. You can make your own crust and sauce, or you can take the easy way out and buy a frozen pizza on sale (as I did for this photo op, while I was picking up 'scripts at the pharmacy).
So, here's the scoop:
Take your uncooked pizza and place it on the countertop.
Spread 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over the mozzarella.
Bake according to recipe/package instructions.
Take a small can of chopped olives and whiz them for a bit in a blender or food processor; you can puree them or leave them with a bit of texture, whichever you prefer.
Use a small spoon to place mounds of olives in the pattern of a jack-o-lantern face. Serve to kids who will be thrilled (until they find out that there are olives on their pizza) ....
