When your Halloween horde needs more than a veggie platter or a bag of popcorn, make a pizza with mummy appeal. You can craft pizza out of almost anything these days, and opting for low-sodium sauce, and low-fat cheese and lean meat will help balance out some unavoidable candy indulgences later.
Halloween is a perfect time to drag out those specialty cookie cutters in the outline of witches, pumpkins and spooky ghosts for shaping single-serving pizza crusts.
Try draping diagonal strips of white cheese across mini pizzas leaving an open wedge toward the top for eyes made of olive slices. It'll be a mummy face pizza to remember. For quick crusts, use refrigerated dough, English muffins, pita bread or even French bread slices.
