In my continuing obsession with Halloween themed food, today’s post features pizza! The top photo shows a Jack o’ Lantern pizza. It may not be the prettiest Jack o’ Lantern, but he sure was tasty. I blended the pizza sauce and spices with some vegan cream cheese to lighten the color from red to orange. I then “brushed” some red pizza sauce on each side of the face (hard to see in the photo) to add some depth. The facial features are made out of kalamata olives and the pumpkin stem is a piece of artichoke heart. I put this together quickly with on-hand ingredients, but if I were to to it for guests, I might use slices of eggplant (peel side up) for some or all of the features to be larger and more dramatic.
This next pizza is my attempt at making a spider and his web. Again, it’s not the most artistic pizza in the world, but you get the idea. (Kalamata spiders are my favorite!)
And if yesterday’s baked pumpkin oatmeal wasn’t enough pumpkin for you, try this Moroccan-Spiced Pumpkin Hummus from Quick-Fix Vegan — the recipe is posted on GoDairyFree.org.
