Ingredients

  • 14 oz refrigerated pizza dough one package (I used Pillsbury), or a homemade pizza dough
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 20 pepperoni slices

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Set aside a 9-inch pie plate.
  • Unroll the pizza dough onto a work surface. Cut out a few pieces to make your favorite jack-o-lantern style face.
  • Cut the rest of the dough into strips. Squeeze them into tube shapes and tie into individual knots.
  • Spread the cream cheese to the bottom of the baking dish. Then place the knots in a ring around the dish pan on top of the cream cheese.
  • Add ½ cup mozzarella on top of the cream cheese, and add parmesan. Spread marinara sauce, and finish with the remaining mozzarella.
  • Add pepperoni to fully cover mozzarella. Then place the cutout pieces on top of pepperoni to make a jack-o-lantern face.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the knots turn golden brown. Serve warm.

Notes

  • Lighter Option: You can use light cream cheese and part-skim mozzarella for fewer calories. 
  • Toppings: Instead of pepperoni, you can use ham or mushrooms.
