Flour tortillas are topped with pizza sauce and bat-shaped cheese slices or toppings in this scary Halloween dinner recipe. The fun about this recipe is you can customize it however you want, and even use mini-bagels and make your own scary meal quickly.
This frighteningly delightful Halloween dinner recipe is a snap to make. It only has four ingredients. That means you can have it on the table in no time, leaving more time for the important Halloween stuff, like trick or treating!
You can use any kind of tortillas you like for these bat tortilla pizzas. Sun-dried tomato tortillas add a little extra Halloween color to the recipe. Spinach tortillas add a monstrously scary dimension to these tortilla pizzas. Play around, experiment, get creative.
And of course, you can experiment with the cheeses, too. Provolone would be a nice alternative to the cheddar. And asiago would make a nice change from the mozzarella. Just be sure to use cheese slices for the bats. That is really the only way to get the bat shapes to turn out right.
The other thing that is nice about these bat tortilla pizzas is that the kids can actually make them with you. It is a great way to occupy them before it’s time to go trick or treating. Let them cut out assemble the pizzas and cut out the bats. All you have to be there for is getting the pizzas into and out of the oven (and the clean up, of course).
Bat Tortilla Pizzas
- 4 9-inch whole wheat or flour tortillas (you can use mini bagels as well!)
- 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce or your favorite marinara sauce
- 4 slices low-fat cheddar cheese slices
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray tortillas with olive oil-flavored cooking spray. Divide the mozzarella cheese evenly among the four tortillas. Place on a sturdy baking sheet or cookie sheet (you may need two cookie sheets to fit all the tortillas in). Bake in preheated oven 5 to 7 minutes or just until the cheese melts.
- Remove the pizzas from the oven and top with the marinara sauce. Using bat cookie cutters, cut out bat shapes in the cheese and place on top of the sauce.
- Bake another 7 to 9 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings.
Note: If you are using two cookie sheets, rotate them halfway through cooking, so that the pizzas can cook evenly.
