2 6.5-ounce packages dry pizza crust mix
nonstick cooking spray
12 slices mozzarella cheese
1 1/4 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
3 large black olives, cut into small pieces, for eyes


Preheat oven to 425 F.

Spray a small rectangular baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare pizza dough according to package directions and spread on the baking sheet. Bake in oven until crust is lightly browned.

While crust is baking, cut slices of cheese into ghost shapes using Halloween shaped cookie cutters. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce and Italian seasoning. Stir. Spread evenly over crust. Place cheese shapes on pizza. Add pieces of black olives for eyes as needed.

Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until cheese melts slightly.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes. Cut into 12 pieces and serve warm.
