Make Halloween Dinner Easy: Pizza Mummies

Share

Costumes, school parties, trick or treating. For parents, Halloween can be exhausting.....but at the same time a lot of fun. With all the craziness and excitement of the big day, how do we get everything done and feed the kids too? Just make a big batch of these Pizza Mummies in the morning and all you have to do before everyone shows up for the big fashion show is toss them in the oven for a few minutes. Chances are your kids may be even more amused by your Pizza Mummies than they are about everyone's costumes!

    Hello,

    Just wondering….I am new to making school lunches. How would I keep something like this hot or at least warm for lunch time? Or is it just as good cold?

    Thanks

      That will depend on the lunch container you use. You’ll need to use a container that will keep things hot. You could also wrap it in foil to keep in some of the heat. My kids eat their school lunches at room temperature!

    I have tried this two times and my cheese never melts :( It just burns.

      Oh no! What type of cheese are you using? Where in the oven are you placing the baking sheet? You may need to place it lower in the oven. Also, I have noticed that lower fat and fat free cheese don’t melt quite the same as full fat versions!

      Jennifer – do you have full fat or low fat cheese? I’ve found that low fat cheese doesn’t melt so well. That could be it.
