- 250g block mozzarella
For the dough
- Measure the flour, yeast, salt, oil and water into a mixing bowl. Mix together using a spoon.
- Turn out onto a floured work surface and knead for 5 to 10 minutes until you have a smooth shiny dough.
- Place in an oiled bowl. Cover with clingfilm and leave to rise for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
For the sauce
- Meanwhile to make the sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan.
- Add the onion and garlic and fry for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the sundried tomato paste and basil. Leave to cool.
Now for the fun part…
- Preheat the oven to 200°C fan. Knead the dough, then roll out to a large 30cm circle. Place on a baking sheet or round pizza tray. Spread the sauce over the base.
- Stamp out salami bats and mozzarella ghosts using Halloween cutters. Make spiders out of the black olives.
- Put the olive spiders and salami bats onto the pizza.
- Bake for 15 minutes until nearly cooked, then add the pizza ghosts and put back into the oven for 4 to 5 minutes until just melted and the edges of the pizza are golden brown (don’t leave too long or the mozzarella will spread too much).
TIP: If you don’t have time to make the pizza dough, you could try using ciabatta bread as the base.
