I hope you and your family are enjoying plenty of festive halloween activities like trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, exploring haunted houses, carving jack-o-lanterns, and watching horror films.
Halloween themed snacks and food recipes are available in abundance, however I could not go without sharing one more. The "pumpkin" themed mini pizzas are not only lower in calories and fat, but also simple to prepare. They can be served as a meal, snack, or even as appetizer for your next halloween party. I think it goes without saying that they are fun for children to assemble - but for safety reasons the veggie toppings (ie. stem, mouth, etc) should be pre-cut.
I choose to top (decorate) the pizzas with tomatoes and green peppers, however various other substitutions would work. Such options include basil, olives, broccoli, or turkey pepperoni. Be creative!
