Creepy Mini Pizzas Recipe

  • Crust:
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, or more as needed
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® Pizza Crust Yeast or RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/3 cups very warm water (120 degrees to 130 degrees F)
  • 1/3 cup Mazola® Vegetable Plus! Oil
  • Suggested Toppings:
  • Green, red and yellow bell peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Black olives
  • Pepperoni slices
  • Curly leaf parsley or other fresh herbs
  • 1 pound shredded white and yellow cheeses such as mozzarella and cheddar
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute.
  3. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Divide dough into 8 portions; cover. (If using RapidRise Yeast, let dough rise at this point for 10 minutes.)
  4. Pat each portion of dough with floured hands into an 8-inch circle on a greased baking sheet. Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough. Add a second crust to the same baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes, dough will be just set and only lightly browned on the bottom. Remove crusts to a wire rack to cool. Continue with remaining pizza dough. (Works best to use several baking sheets.) May use crusts immediately or place in freezer bags and freeze for up to 1 month.
  6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Spread each crust with pizza sauce. Top with desired toppings to make Halloween designs! Repeat with remaining pizzas. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 6 to 8 minutes, until cheese is melted and lightly browned and bottom of crust is browned.
