Halloween Party Food

Get into the Halloween party spirit!

Want to trick people into thinking you spent hours and hours on all your delicious Halloween party food? Here are some of our most monstrously good ideas, to help you put together a sensational and stress-free celebration.

Treat them to Pizza

Pizza is the ultimate people-pleasing party food any time of year. Pick up a ball of fresh dough, some fresh mozzarella and your favorite sauce, then dress it up however you like. Need some inspiration? Try these ideas on large pizzas, or divide your dough and let people create their own pies.

  • Pick a Pumpkin: Mold your pizza dough into a pumpkin shape with a stem at the top, then use your favorite toppings to give it a Jack-o-Lantern grin (or grimace.)

  • Itsy Bitsy Spiders: Spreading sauce and mozzarella on your pizza dough, and top it with a few whole black olives. These will be your spiders’ bodies. Cut more black olives into slivers, and place four on each side of the whole olives to create cute, creepy little spider legs.

  • Happy Haunting: Cut slices of fresh mozzarella into ghost shapes and place them on your pizza. Give your ghosts eyes with capers or little olive bits.

  • Eyes on the Pizza Prize: Place small mozzarella balls on your pizza, then top each one with a black or green olive slice (the pimento in the center is especially weird.)

Witches’ Finger Food

Use Our Own Dough Ball or make your own dough, and make breadsticks in the shape of fingers. Placing a pumpkin seed fingernail at the end of each one.


Cut the top off an orange bell pepper and remove the seeds. Carve a Jack-o-lantern face into one side, fill with prepared macaroni and cheese, and replace the top. Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes until peppers are tender, then serve. You can also change up the fillings and stuff them with chili or rice and beans.

Mummy Dogs

All you need are hot dogs, canned crescent roll dough and mustard or ketchup. Unroll your crescent roll dough, seal up the perforations, and cut the dough into long strips. Wrap the strips of dough around your hot dogs like you might wrap a mummy, criss-crossing and leaving a bit of the hot dog peeking through. Bake at 350°F for 10-15 minutes, until dough is golden brown. Remove from the oven and add eyes on one end of the hot dog with two dots of mustard or ketchup.

Eyeballs Por Favor

Tacos are always a good idea, and for Halloween, top them with dollops of sour cream, then place sliced black olives in the center of each sour cream dot. Ewww!

Tricky Tostadas

Cut a slice of cheddar or American cheese in the shape of a pumpkin, and give it a creepy jack-o-lantern face. Then top a tostada shell with refried beans, and place your cheese-pumpkin on top.
