Boo-licious Ghost Pizzas

Make these easy and fun Ghost Pizzas for Halloween!  Such a simple and spooky dinner idea that everyone will love!

Happy Halloween! I wanted to share this simple and spooky idea for your Halloween dinner!  Every year I try to make a spooky pizza for the kids for Halloween night.  Pizza is always a big hit in our home, especially the home made kind, and I love that it’s an easy dinner for me to prepare, so it’s a win win for everyone. So this year I created ghost pizzas for my little trick or treaters…they make the kids smile and get excited for their night of candy collecting!  It’s a fun way to send them off trick or treating.

Use your bread machine to make the dough!

These Ghost Pizzas are so festive but SO easy at the same time.  I make the dough in my bread machine with recipe below, then it’s as simple as shaping the ball of dough into a ghost form.  Then I spread on a small jar of bought pizza sauce, add our favourite toppings and cover them all with cheese!  Then I cut out some tomatoes for eyes and a mouth, and bake until golden delicious!

Recipe Tips for Ghost Pizzas:

  • Instead of tomatoes, use pepperoni slices to make the ghost face.
  • If you want to add loads of toppings, put them under the cheese, then dress the top of the pizza to look like a ghost.
  • Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect, Halloween food is perfect when it’s not perfect!

Ghost Pizzas for Halloween

Make Ghost Pizzas for Halloween! Such a simple and fun dinner idea!  This recipe makes 1 large pizza ghost.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp bread machine yeast


  1. Add all of the ingredients to your bread machine.
  2. Select the Dough/Pasta cycle (it’s usually about a 1 hr and 30 minute cycle).
  3. Once the dough cycle has completed, remove the dough to a surface lightly dusted with flour, and cover with a clean tea towel. Let rise for 15 minutes.
  4. Roll out and shape the dough into a ghost and transfer it to a prepared baking sheet. (I prepare a baking sheet with a light layer of olive oil, or some corn meal.)
  5. Add pizza sauce, toppings and cheese.
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
