Making Monster Pizza for a Healthy Halloween
Ready for a little family fun at dinner? It’s Monster pizza making time! These pizzas are great for any family pizza night, but they’re even more awesome for an easy Halloween dinner. They are what I call total ‘yum fun’.
In addition, making monster pizza is a fantastic way to get the kids to eat more veggies. They will have a blast with their artistic food creations and will surprisingly discover that veggies on pizza are a very good, tasty addition.
I know, I know…if you have a picky eater you’re doubting me and saying ‘not my kid’. However, with my Fidget pizza making events, it’s been proven over and over that even picky eaters will create and eat. I like to think of it as ‘crafting with food’. Maybe your picky eater won’t, but maybe they will…it’s worth the try.

Follow these simple directions and make monster memories together….

- Olives, sliced
- Sliced carrots
- Broccoli, cut into small pieces
- Mini pepperoni, turkey

Create an assembly line of sauces and toppings.
Place your FlatOut® Pizza crusts on a baking sheet that’s been coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Add your favorite sauce to the crust, add a layer of shredded cheese & use the toppings to create your own personal pan monsters.
Bake your personal pan monsters at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
Let the monsters cool slightly and then enjoy your delicious creations.
Pesto: Try both a traditional basil and a sun-dried tomato. They are delicious once baked in the oven. Just a light layer adds a whole lot of flavor; my whole family loves pesto as a sauce alternative.
