I make no secret about how much I love Halloween. Every year is a new chance to create some fun themed treats, put out amazing decorations and enjoy all things spooky. But one thing I’ve always believed is that Halloween fun at home doesn’t have to mean sugar overload. After all, kids will have enough of that when they get back from trick-or-treating! From healthy Halloween snacks to spooky main courses, serving low-sugar alternatives to that bowl of candy is just as much fun!
This year, I decided to create a simple and nutritious Halloween supper. And Kraft Canada gave me my inspiration with its Mummy Face Pizzas. I made a few minor substitutions and in less than ten minutes, had a plate of tasty and healthy Mini Mummy Pizzas to serve to my boys!
Mini Mummy Pizzas
- 6 whole wheat mini pitas
- 3 tbsp. pizza sauce
- 6 oz. Kraft Mozzarella cheese cut into thin strips
- 12 slices black olives
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spread each pita with about 1/2 tbsp. of pizza sauce.
Place two olives on each pita as eyes.
Layer strips of cheese over each pita.
Bake about ten minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
While the bagel used in the original recipe worked well for creating the face shape since it had a naturally formed mouth from the hole in the middle, I preferred the lighter choice of whole wheat mini pita breads for this recipe. The pitas made the dish a less filling one for my boys’ smaller appetites and also make this a perfect appetizer for a Halloween party. I used the suggested olives for the mummy’s eyes but for meat lovers, substituting slices of pepperoni stick would work well too!
