I remember how memorable it was when our two sons were little (they’re grown men now) and would get dressed up for Halloween festivities. They were always SO incredibly excited! This would be a fun dinner to serve before going Trick or Treating, or to serve a group of kids at a Harvest Party! They will be talking about making their own MUMMY PIZZAS long after they’ve eaten them!
All YOU will need to do is a TINY bit of prep work (slice cheese and olives), let the kids decorate their pizzas, and then YOU can bake them! That’s it! Then, before you can say “FUNNY YUMMY MUMMY”, a “spooky” tasty lunch is served!
It’s EASY To Make English Muffin Mummy Pizzas!
The first thing you will need to do is split the English muffins in half. Place them on a parchment paper or silicone baking mat, cut side UP, on a 13×9 inch baking sheet. Place a HEAPING Tablespoon of prepared pizza or spaghetti sauce onto each English muffin half. I used my homemade spaghetti sauce. Spread the sauce with a spoon, to cover the English muffin.
By the way, if you are ever interested in learning how to make homemade English muffins, my recipe is right here.
Since we ALL KNOW that mummies have eyes (right?), the next thing to do is slice the pimento-stuffed green olives into “eyeballs”. Position them toward the top of the English muffin mummy pizza.
The next thing to do is position thin strips of mozzarella cheese on top, as if wrapping a mummy. This is where the kids can really get creative! I used string cheese sticks, and carefully cut them into strips. However, you can definitely use packaged mozzarella slices, or mozzarella slices cut from a large mozzarella ball (and then trimmed), to make this work for you. Best width is 1/4″.
Once the English muffin mummy pizzas are decorated and “mummified”, they are ready to put into the oven and bake!
Baking English Muffin Mummy Pizzas
Place the baking sheet in a preheated 400°F oven. The yummy mummies will need to bake between 8 and 12 minutes. They are done when the cheese has melted, and the muffins are heated through. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. TIP: Let the English muffin mummy pizzas cool for a little bit before serving (especially to kids), because they will be very hot!
Here’s an up close photo of my English muffin mummy pizzas. I made the strips of cheese a bit wider than the recommended 1/4″ size, so a lot of the cheese melted together. I think the pizza on the far left ended up looking a bit like Santa Claus, now that I think about it. Hmmm. Wrong season… wait your turn, Santa!
Here’s hoping your family enjoys these cute little English muffin mummy pizzas! My hubby and I, (who are most definitely “big kids”) really did!
