Costumes, school parties, trick or treating. For parents, Halloween can be exhausting.....but at the same time a lot of fun.

Pizza Mummies from

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!

      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.

      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!
