With all the craziness and excitement of Halloween, 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.

Pizza Mummies from Weelicious.com

Every year we go to my dear friend Keri's house for her famous Halloween party. If kids and parents alike could design their dream Halloween party, they would both come up with this one. We're talking games, arts and crafts, a dead end street with house after house decorated to the nines, kids and adults decked out in their spooky best, a relaxed vibe, and tons and tons of homemade food. If Keri ever stops hosting this shindig I don't know what I'll do, because my kids only association with Halloween is this party and I can't bear the thought of telling them that as fun as Halloween is, it could never be as awesome as Keri makes it.

The party is always a potluck and for the past two years I've brought my Mummy Dogs to add to the spread. This year both of my kids have requested I make Pizza Mummies. They're so darned cute and I like that my kids' bellies get filled up with something other than the pounds of sugar awaiting them on their trick or treat extravaganza.


Chances are your kids may be even more amused by your Pizza Mummies than they are about everyone's costumes!

Weelicious Disclaimer: Pizza Mummies probably won't prevent your kids from eating candy, but they hopefully will get their night started off in a fun and filling way. Your little ones can even help you make them, just like Chloe and a few of her buddies do in today's Pizza Mummies Video!

      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!
