All you need to create these spooktacular mini pizzas are some refrigerated large flaky biscuits, a jar of pizza sauce and slices of mozzarella.

Pull apart the biscuit layers so each pizza crust is ⅓ to ½ of a biscuit. Add a spoonful of sauce. Then, use a cookie cutter to cut ghostly slices of mozzarella to cover the tops. Bits of chopped black olives were added for the ghosts’ eyes and mouths.

Bake according to the directions on the biscuit can.

Yield: 8 Servings

Ingredients: 

  • 1 pound whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella
  • Marinara
  • Fresh Lasagna Noodles, cut into 4-by-13-inch strips and cooked, or store-bought dried noodles, cooked
  • 5 ounces coarsely grated Parmesan cheese, (about 1 3/4 cups)

 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine ricotta, egg, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl. Season with pepper. Coarsely grate 1/2 of the mozzarella, and stir into ricotta mixture. Using your fingers, shred remaining mozzarella into 2-inch strips, and reserve.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup marinara in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Place a layer of noodles over marinara. Spread 1/3 of the ricotta mixture over noodles, and sprinkle with 1/3 of the Parmesan. Place a layer of noodles over the cheese layer. Spread 1 cup marinara over noodles. Repeat layering (noodles, marinara, noodles, ricotta mixture, Parmesan) 2 more times. Spread remaining marinara over cheese layer, then sprinkle with shredded mozzarella
  3. Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until cheese is golden brown and sauce is bubbling, 45 to 50 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
