As we approach the end of the year, we cannot help to think about the many holidays ahead! For some, the thought of the holidays can be overwhelming and hectic. However, here at Top Hat Catering, we want to give you a lovely distraction this month, by sharing a lovely yet spooky pizza recipe that the whole family will enjoy!
October is National Pizza Month which was first observed in the United States during 1984, October was designated National Pizza Month by Gerry Durnell, the founder of Pizza Today magazine, who chose that month because the first issue of his magazine debuted in October of that year. The month of October is also the month we celebrate Halloween therefore, we have combined the two to share with you the Crescent Mummy Pizza recipe! A delicious treat for the family with a spooky fun twist. We hope you enjoy this recipe and share it with your love ones. Top Hat Catering would like to wish you a happy pizza month and a very spooky Halloween.
Crescent Mummy Pizzas
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheet
1/3 cup pizza sauce
8 slices mozzarella cheese (from 8-oz package), cut into 8 strips each
16 ripe olive slices or mini pepperoni slices, for eyes
1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2 Separate crescent dough into 4 rectangles; press seams together. (If using crescent dough sheet, unroll and cut into 4 equal rectangles.) Using pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut each rectangle crosswise in half. Place crescent squares on cookie sheet, and press out slightly. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown; remove from oven.
3 Spread about 2 teaspoons of the pizza sauce on top of each crescent square. Top each with 8 strips of mozzarella cheese, alternating and overlapping strips to look like mummy bandages. Add 2 olive or pepperoni slices to each for eyes.
4 Bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until cheese slightly melts. Serve warm.
