Isn’t Halloween such a fun time of year? We love to adapt recipes to have a spooky twist … like this Pizza Dip.

It’s sort of like an inside out pizza. There are layers of cream cheese, mozzarella and pepperoni with twists of pizza dough to dip into them. And we made a jack-o-lantern face in the middle out of leftover dough, so it stares at you!

Watch our video tutorial to see how to make it! Happy Halloween!
