Halloween is on a Monday night this year, which means it will be busy with work night and school night schedules to keep up too! Quick, delicious dinner solutions will come in handy.
Pizza always makes a good treat, and can be made the day before; just wrap tightly after assembly and freeze. Let the person who stays home to answer the doorbell for trick-or-treaters be the one to pop the pizza in the oven. Instant party when everyone gets back!
For colorful pizzas that use fresh, healthy ingredients and fit right into this spooky season (think orange!), try these 5 gourmet pizza topping ideas.
Make your own crust or use a premade crust, add these toppings and bake:
Roast Pumpkin & Chorizo
Chopped, roasted pumpkin, sprinkled with cooked, crumbled chorizo sausage and shredded mozzarella.
Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese & Pine Nuts
Thinly sliced sweet potatoes, sprinkled with goat cheese and toasted pine nuts. You can also bake the sweet potatoes, scoop out the flesh, mash and spread on a pizza crust; then add the goat cheese and pine nuts.
Peach & Gorgonzola
Thinly sliced fresh peaches, sprinkled with gorgonzola cheese.
Yellow Tomato & Orange Bell Pepper
Sliced yellow tomatoes and sliced orange bell peppers, sprinkled with fresh Parmesan and olive oil.
Acorn Squash & Caramelized Onions
Sliced, roasted acorn squash and golden caramelized onions, sprinkled with goat cheese.
Party tip: Cut pizzas into small squares for appetizers!
