Ingredient Notes

Ingredients for the pizzas

Ghost Pizza

  • English Muffins: Regular or dairy free.
  • Pizza Sauce: I love Rao’s, but any brand will work. If you are wanting to make this recipe dairy-free, but sure to check the ingredients for a dairy-free sauce.
  • Mozzarella Cheese Slices: Regular or dairy free.
  • Black Olives: I use canned olives and cut them in tiny pieces for the eyes.
  • Ghost Cookie Cutter: Feel free to also use other shapes of choice, bats, witch hats, black cat, etc.

Mac’s Pro Tip

Expert Tips

  • Pre-toast the Muffins: Toast the English muffins lightly before adding your toppings. Pop them in a 350F oven for a couple of minutes. This helps prevent them from getting soggy and adds a nice crunch to the crust.

Variations

  • Ghost English muffin pizzas are highly customizable, and you can make a variety of different variations by adding your preferred toppings. It doesn’t have to be just cheese; you can get creative with your choices. Adding classic options like pepperoni, sliced bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, and onions is a great way to enhance the flavor and texture of your pizza. After adding your desired toppings, you can then create a ghostly shape with cheese over the top to give it a fun and spooky twist. Remember, the key is to have fun and personalize your ghost English muffin pizzas to your liking!

Storage

  • Refrigeration: If you intend to eat the ghost pizzas within a few days, you can store them in the refrigerator. They can typically stay fresh for 2-3 days by placing them in an airtight container or wrapping them individually.
  • Freezer Storage: For longer-term storage, frozen ghost pizzas can last for 1-2 months in the freezer. When ready to eat, you can reheat them directly from the freezer.

FAQs

Can I make these English Muffin Pizza gluten and dairy free?

For sure! Simply use your favorite dairy free cheese and a gluten free English muffin. You will also want to find a pizza sauce or marinara sauce that is dairy-free. My favorite brand is Rao’s.

What if I only have shredded cheese? Can I still make a ghost shape?

You can also use shredded cheese. After spreading the sauce on the pizza, simply place the cookie cutter on top of the pizza and sprinkle the cheese inside the cutter, filling the shape. Once you have filled in the shape of the cookie cutter, gently remove it.
