Pizza Dough Bones

This summer when our family was in Italy we visited a crypt in a teeny tiny town in Umbria. Due to a naturally occurring spore in the dirt below the crypt, the crypt houses the almost perfectly mummified remains of bodies which are hundreds of years old. Spooked out yet? I was. When you’re in a dark room with real mummies (some still dressed in the clothes they expired in) and hundreds of bones and skulls that have been piled up over the centuries it's kinda freaky. The kids were a little weirded out, but also quite intrigued.

I’m sure you can imagine where I’m going with this. Halloween + a good Italian bone story = Pizza Dough Bones. See, you can find inspiration even in the least appetizing of places.

It’s always the simplest recipes which make the biggest impact on my kids. Then, add the word “pizza” in the recipe title and you can be assured they’ll both be all thumbs up. These Pizza Dough Bones came out so well the night I made them that Chloe wanted to have them again the next morning for breakfast. She was very disappointed when I told her we were out of them!

Try making them yourself this Halloween using Weelicious Pizza Dough or a good store-bought dough (I love Trader Joe's whole wheat dough). Bake, pile them on a plate or in a basket and serve them up with a side bowl of "bloody" tomato sauce to dip them in. Creepy delicious!
