Halloween Mini Pizzas
This Halloween party appetizer idea is from Busy Little Kitchen. They're called "Mini Mummy Pizzas". These mini Halloween pizzas are kind of like those english muffin pizzas you probably made as a kid. Instead, this recipe uses refrigerated thin crust pizza dough. (I'd probably do these the easy way, with the english muffins). The cheese is layered over the 'pizza' to look like it's a wrapped mummy. The eyes are made of sliced black olives.
