Halloween Spooktacular!

Starting today I'm kicking off the Halloween Spooktacular here at Stress Baker.  "What is that," you say? Well its basically exhibiting my excitement for all things cutesy.  So if you're not into cutesy, I'm sorry; check back after Halloween.

This is Mike & mine's first time to actually have a house to decorate - not just a tiny little apartment so I'm totally jazzed.  I have been working on Halloween crafts/goodies for a week while now.  I won't tell you exactly how long at the risk of making myself sound like a bigger nerd.  Okay, you're right, I can't become any bigger a nerd so it's been about since the middle of September - juuuuuudge away!

Here's one of my first products of Halloween loving-ness: The mummy pizza!

These cute little guys are really simple and wonderfully tasty! Here's whatcha do:

Get a frozen rolls, flatten them out, put tomato sauce and pepperoni on these guys and pop 'em in the oven for a bit.  Next, put down some olive eyes and cover the pizza with peeled string cheese and pop 'em back in a bit.  Voila! You've got an edible mummy old and young alike will love!

Bonus of these, they're really easy to make for a crowd and believe me, your crowd will be pleased!  Of course, it would be a lot of fun to make with kids! Hope you enjoy!

Mummy pizzas
Slightly adapted from http://www.rhodesbread.com/recipes/view/2169

Frozen Rolls, thawed (I used Rhode's)
Pizza or spaghetti sauce, whatever's your favorite!
1 can sliced olives
12 sticks of mozzarella string cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F and spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Take thawed rolls and smash/stretch into a medium circle, about 4-6 inches.  Take about 1-2 tablespoons of pizza sauce and spread over rolls.  Important poke holes in the crust with a fork so that the crust doesn't bubble up. Bake for 8-10 minutes until dough is cooked.  While the pizzas are baking separate string cheeses into thin strips, I used about 3/4 of a stick per pizza, but adapt it to your tastes! When pizzas are out of the oven, cover sauce with desired amount of pepperoni; we liked 3-4 per pizza.  Put down two olive slices near the top for eyes and then cover with string cheese in a zig zag pattern to complete your mummy.  Pop back in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Allow to cool before enjoying your mummy!
