1 tbsp olive oil
1 x 145g pack pizza base mix
4 salami slices, cut into bat shapes
7 pitted black olives, halved
125g ball mozzarella, torn into pieces
1.Preheat your oven to 220°C (428°F), Gas Mark 7, Fan 200°C (392°F).
2. In a saucepan, combine the passata and olive oil. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until it thickens.
Empty the pizza base mix into a bowl and stir in 100ml of warm water. Mix until it forms a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes or until it becomes smooth.
3.Roll out the dough to approximately 24cm in diameter. Place it on a large baking sheet that has been greased, and fold up the edges to create a crust. Allow the dough to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes.
4.While the dough is resting, thinly slice 8 olive halves lengthwise to create 32 spider legs (each spider has eight legs). Dice two more olive halves to make eyes for the mozzarella ghosts.
5.Spread the passata over the pizza base, leaving a 1cm border. Top with the slices of salami and arrange the torn mozzarella cheese in ghostly shapes, leaving some space for them to spread. Position the remaining olive halves, cut-side down, and place 4 spider legs on each side.
6.Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until it’s bubbling and golden.
7.Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for 1 minute. Then, add the reserved olive eyes to each melted mozzarella ghost.
8.Serve your spooky Halloween pizza immediately and enjoy!
