With Halloween fast approaching, I thought I’d start a little recipe section for everyone who’s into scary bakes and treats. I mean, there’s some pretty neat recipes to find on the internet, but sometimes, it’s so difficult to find everything in one place, so I thought, why not? I’m not necessarily the best cook in the world and such, but if I find something worthwhile, I’m sure folks would like to know where to find what and how to do it, so here we go with my first recipe “find”… The Jack O’Lantern Pizza.
1 pre-made soft pizza crust
1 bag of pre-cut pepperoni
1 8 oz. bag mozzarella & cheddar cheese mix
1 container pizza sauce
1 Green pepper
Any other veggies you’d like.

Following the instructions on the pizza crust tube for pre-baking the crust after you shape it to the Jack-O-Lantern pan. After the crust is done, cover it with the pizza sauce of your choice, add pepperoni and any veggies you want.
Cover liberally with the cheddar/mozzarella cheese mix, making sure to cover anything underneath it. Cut green peppers in to thin slivers, save a larger piece to make the stem. Lay pieces out to make the indentations of the pumpkin. Cut pieces of pepperoni to make the eyes, nose and mouth of the Jack-O-Lantern. You could also use a yellow pepper to do this for variation on a meatless pizza. Here’s what mine looks like before baking.
Bake according to the instructions on the pizza crust wrapper, usually about 20 minutes, but you’ll know when it’s done. The cheese will be all bubbly and the crust will be golden.
