Add these pizza mummies to your spooky halloween menu. Quick to make, they’re a delightful and fun snack that kids will love!


  • 500g store-bought pizza dough
  • 8 heaped teaspoons pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup salami, chopped
  • 1/4 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced red capsicum (bell pepper)
  • Olive oil spray
  • 16 spooky eyes
  • 810 green olives
  • Heat treated flour, to dust*


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.and line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Cut and roll the pizza dough into 8 rectangles. Slice both sides horizontally to make little strips.
  3. Spread pizza sauce in the centre of each rectangle. Top with mozzarella cheese, salami, baby spinach, and capsicum, leaving the strips plain.
  4. Pull the strips over to each side, gently pressing to create an X pattern, resembling a mummy’s bandages.
  5. Spray the tops with olive oil and bake for15-20 minutes or until the dough is lightly golden.
  6. To make the spiders, cut an olive in half to create the “body” and slice the remaining olive across to make the “legs.”
  7. Place the pizza mummies on a plate, dust with flour (for a more mummy-like appearance), and top with edible eyeballs for the eyes. Assemble the olive “spiders” around the mummies for a spooky effect.
  8. Serve your halloween pizza mummies and spiders with extra pizza sauce on the side for dipping.


  • Heat-treat your flour by baking 3 tablespoons at 350F/ 180C for 7-10 minutes until it reach 160F/ 70C.*
  • Store pizzas in the fridge for up to 3 days. Freeze in a freezer safe bag or container for 3 months.
  • Reheat from frozen in the oven or microwave.
  • Other filling ideas: Cooked sausag, eggplant, zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, red onion, mushrooms, olives or pineapple.
