1Pre-BakedPizza Crust(Your preferred brand)
1JarPizza Sauce(Your preferred brand)
4-6MozzarellaString Cheese Sticks or Shredded Mozzarella(I prefer shredded Mozzarella)
3LargeBlack Olives(3 for each spider)
Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees
Place pizza crust on baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce over the top of crust. Add as little or as much pizza sauce as you want.
To Create The Web
If Using String Cheese Sticks: Cut the mozzarella sticks in half lengthwise and then take each piece and cut them in half again. (You can also use your fingers to pull the cheese into thin strips.) Place the cheese strips in the shape of a large + on your pizza. Next place cheese strips in a large X shape overlapping the +.
Now use the remaining cheese strips to create a "spider web" shaped circle around the outside of your Halloween pizza. You may need to cut a cheese strip to fit into the "web". Next make a smaller circle towards the middle of the pizza cutting the strips as needed.
If Using Shredded Mozzarella Cheese: Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese in a large circle towards the outer edge of your Halloween pizza. Leave a gap of pizza sauce between the crust and your cheese web. Next make a smaller circle of shredded cheese more towards the center of your Halloween pizza. Now finish off the "spider web" by sprinkling the cheese in a straight line down the middle of your pizza both horizontally and vertically. (Like a plus sign + ) Add more straight lines as needed until the Halloween pizza webbing looks good to you. You can also add a circle of shredded cheese on the crust for extra flavor (see picture).
Making The Spider
Each spider will use 3 of your large olives. First use an entire olive for the body and set it on your pizza. Next slice off the closed tip half of an olive and place that on your Halloween pizza as the head. Take the third olive, cut it in half lengthwise and cut each half into slivers to make the spider legs.
Bake pizza for around 8 - 10 minutes at 400 degrees, or until the cheese melts. Remove from oven and serve warm.
If you are in a rush, you can make spiders by cutting an olive in half lengthwise. Use each half as an entire spider and then cut another olive to make legs.
