Woo-hoo! Make these spooky Halloween Pizzas with Cheestrings

IMG_4890

I’ve been sent some Cheese and Tomato Cheestrings and Cheese Spaghetti for the kids and as it’s Halloween AND half-term I got them involved in making these cheesy-stringy-spooky pizzas.

As the youngest said: ‘Woo-hoo.’ In both senses of the phrase. OK, the peppers shaped like a black cat, a ghost and a pumpkin aren’t immediately recognisable as such. And, OK, the ‘scary’ Cheestring man isn’t exactly in the Freddie Kruger league. But hey, come on, they’re kids. It’s better than knocking on doors and scaring old ladies – they’re reserving that for Halloween Night.

Give them a go, should you be minded. My lot were-wolfed them down. Fer-nah!

What you’ll need for 2 pizzas for 2-4 kids.

2 ready-made pizza bases (I used Napolina)
Half jar margherita pizza-base sauce or tomato passata
2-3 packs Cheese and Tomato Cheestrings
2 packets Cheese Spaghetti
100-150g wafer-thin cut ham
Handful of pitted black olives
3 halves of different coloured peppers, deseeded (I used red, orange and yellow)
Handful cherry or Santini tomatoes

1. For each pizza, use a tablespoon to coat each base with a thin layer of margherita sauce or passata.

2. Now follow the steps below to build up a picture for each pizza. Use Halloween cookie cutters to cut out the shapes of a cat, ghost and pumpkin from half of each pepper (you could grill and peel the peppers first, if preferred, but my kids like them crunchy). Use long thin pepper slices to create a frame around a pizza. Peel apart the Cheestrings and Cheese Spaghetti to make hair, arms, bodies and faces. Use black olives for eyes and mouths.

3. Once you’re happy with your works of art, cook the pizzas in a pre-heated oven at 200C/Gas for 10 mins until the base is crispy. Allow to cool and little and serve with green salad.
