Halloween pizza – the dough

If the Halloween pizza is to be prepared particularly quickly, you can use frozen pizza dough and save yourself the time to prepare the dough. Nowadays, frozen dough can be delicious too, so if you’ve already found a good brand, feel free to use them.

However, if you would like to prepare a delicious pizza dough yourself, you can choose between dough with and without yeast. We have quick recipe ideas for both variants that you can use if you haven’t found a pizza dough recipe yet. We start with a dough with yeast:

Make Halloween pizza like a monster with lots of eyes and teeth out of salami

For approx. 4 servings:

  • 450 g flour
  • 1/2 cube of yeast (approx. 21 g)
  • 250 ml of water
  • 15 g of salt
  • 1 pinch of sugar
  • 15 ml of olive oil

Sift the flour into a bowl. Mix the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to the flour. Knead a smooth dough, but don’t overdo it with the kneading time. Divide the dough into 4 smaller balls, oil them lightly, then cover them and place them in a warm place where the dough can stand for 2 to 3 hours. Then you can roll out the pizza base and cover it as you like.

Halloween pizza dough Recipe without yeast for 1 baking sheet:

  • 400 g of flour
  • 260 ml of water
  • 1 packet of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Milk can also be used instead of water. First, put the flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix them together well. Then add the remaining ingredients and knead a smooth dough. Since baking powder does not have to steep, you can process the dough immediately and save yourself the waiting time. Roll out the dough and top it with your favorite ingredients.

Roll out and cover

Creative suggestions for copying with pizza dough and pizza toppings

Choose the shape of the classic pizza or prepare mini pizzas. You can also shape the dough like pumpkins or skulls. You can let your imagination run wild and your children will surely be happy to help prepare the Halloween pizza.

Prepare the mummy

Do-it-yourself creative ideas for mummy, pumpkin and spiders for the Halloween party

Would you like a mummy like the one in the picture above? Cut out two oval-shaped pieces of dough of roughly the same size. Cover one of the two and cover it with the other. Roll up the edges lightly so that the topping does not run out. You get a kind of pizza calzone, so to speak. Now you still need a few strips of dough that you can use to imitate the bandage.

Instructions for a pizza calzone in the shape of a mummy

Place them over the oval shape, cutting off the excess, leaving an area for the eyes. For the eyes, just use two rings of olives (different sizes work even better). Brush the dough with egg yolks and you’re ready to bake the mummy pizza.

Otherwise, you can easily play with the topping and create motifs that go perfectly with Halloween. For the Halloween pizza, for example, you can look for suitable cookie cutters (e.g. ghosts) and use them to cut shapes out of cheese and then distribute them over the dough. You can make spiders with olives.

Also with cheese or with mayonnaise or another white sauce, a spider web can be painted on the Halloween pizza. If you are using sauce, it is best to do so after baking. The Pennywise Pizza is a true work of art, for the design of which only different toppings were used. Would you like more ideas from which you can be inspired? Take a look at our pictures!
