Ingredients
  • 1 tube refrigerated pizza dough (approximately 11 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup jumbo pitted black olives, drained
  • 1 4”-5” strip roasted red pepper or sun-dried tomato
  • 2 narrow garlic cloves, peeled
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a 12” x 18” baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll pizza dough onto the parchment-lined pan.

    Cut a 10” circle in the center of the dough.

    Remove the excess dough and set on a cutting board.

    Cut three 2 1/2” circles from the excess dough.

    Place two of the small circles of dough on either side of the large dough circle to form the vampire's ears.

    Roll the remaining dough circle into a ball and place on the large dough circle for the vampire's nose.

    Bake for 6-7 minutes until the dough is lightly golden brown.

  3. Remove from oven and add toppings. Spread pizza sauce over entire dough except for the nose.
  4. Sprinkle cheese over sauce.
  5. Cut one jumbo black olive in half lengthwise.

    Place above and to either side of his nose.

    Finely chop remaining olives.

    Sprinkle the chopped olives all along the top of the vampire's head forming his pointed brow.

    Add the strip of roasted red pepper for his mouth and attach two garlic clove fangs.

  6. Return to oven and bake for 6-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve hot.
