Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

    Advertisement
  • Combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute.

  • Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead** on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Divide dough into 8 portions; cover. (If using RapidRise Yeast, let dough rise at this point for 10 minutes.)

  • Pat each portion of dough with floured hands into an 8-inch circle on a greased baking sheet. Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough. Add a second crust to the same baking sheet.

  • Bake for 6 to 7 minutes, dough will be just set and only lightly browned on the bottom. Remove crusts to a wire rack to cool. Continue with remaining pizza dough. (Works best to use several baking sheets.) May use crusts immediately or place in freezer bags and freeze for up to 1 month.

  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Spread each crust with pizza sauce. Top with desired toppings to make Halloween designs! Repeat with remaining pizzas. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 6 to 8 minutes, until cheese is melted and lightly browned and bottom of crust is browned.

Tips

*If you don't have a thermometer, water should feel very warm to the touch.

Tips

**To knead the dough, add just enough flour to the dough and your hands to keep the dough from sticking.  Flatten dough and fold it toward you. Using the heels of your hands, push the dough away with a rolling motion.  Rotate dough a quarter turn and repeat the "fold, push and turn" steps.  Keep kneading dough until it is smooth and elastic.  Use a little more flour if dough becomes too sticky, always working the flour into the ball of dough.

These were yummy and soooo cute! I mixed the dough and baked it earlier in the day and when my little guy got home from school he helped me top them to look like spooky spiders. We had a blast doing this together and the finished product was not only adorable but also delicious! This is such a fun idea and one that we will be doing again wether it's Halloween or not! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

We made these at a get-together we hosted for the neighborhood kids and they LOVED them! Some of them used unconventional toppings but everything was eaten. Thanks for the adorable idea--they were delicious also! Read More

I didn't hate this dough but I much prefer the whole wheat agave version that I usually make. This was very easy though and fun to make the little pizzas. Read More

The crust was easy to make. I made this for a halloween party so I set out all different toppings and let everyone make their own pizzas. Fun! I made a garlic pizza sauce and set out the toppings... Mozzerella cheese Parmesan cheese Pineapple and canadian bacon italian sausage mushrooms Red peppers Pepperoni and my favorite Pesto and shrimp. You can put any topping on you like. Read More

These turned out to be really fun easy and tasty pizzas. I got 7 pizzas out of the recipe. Everyone thought the crust was tasty and they were just the right size for a group of 9 yr. old girls. They already want to make them again! I haven't had much luck with pizza crusts in the past but those days are over with this recipe. Read More

Did two Halloween shapes for these mini pizzas. Baked the spider pizza completely and then spread a cream cheese-ranch dressing mixture on the top. The pumpkin pizza was pre-baked toppings added and then back into the oven to finish baking. I think the idea for cutting the pizzas into shapes is sound however my execution left a little to be desired:-) Fun anyway. Read More

We had a great time decorating our pizzas for dinner last night! I followed the measurements in this recipe for the crust but I think we prefer the measurements on the back of the Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast package a little better. I made a batch of Exquisite Pizza Sauce (minus the Parmesan cheese) from here at AllRecipes for the sauce and we used mozzarella cheese pepperoni red bell peppers and black olives to decorate them. I only divided the dough into 4 piece so we could be a little more elaborate with our decorations. Read More
