Mummy pizzas are simple, tasty, and great for Halloween. You can serve them up anytime for that matter. The kids will love them. We make two different mummies: a regular mummy shape and a spider shape. You can be as creative as you like, however. We use some very basic ingredients, but you can doctor them up however you see fit.
For example, this recipe uses hot dog buns as the base for the pizza, but French or Italian bread could also be used. It just has to resemble a mummy shape. We make our pizza sauce from scratch, but store bough sauce can be used with a little more ease. Just keep in mind, the better the sauce, the better the outcome. The same applies to all of the ingredients. Mozzarella cheese slices are the best because they can be trimmed to the required shapes. I suppose you could use grated mozzarella, it would involve a little more tinkering. The great thing about Holiday recipes is, you can be as creative as you want. For example, extra ingredients such as red bell pepper, onions, or mushrooms could also be used. You just have to make sure you get the shape and colors that resemble a mummy.
