Spooky Halloween Low-Carb Pizza

Step 1Prepare the pizza crust and Marinara sauce. To make a large pizza, divide the dough into 3 parts - each part will make 1 large pizza. The best way to make the crust is to use a silicon mat and roll the dough out with a nonstick silicone rolling pin. Ideally, use the same silicon mat for rolling and baking so you don't have to move the dough and risk breaking it.
Alternatively, place a piece of the dough between two pieces of baking paper and roll out until the dough is very thin. Finally, use your fingers to roll the edges in creating a rim to hold the pizza filling.

Step 2Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F. Just before placing it in the oven, sprinkle the crust with finely grated Parmesan cheese. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread the marinara sauce all over the pizza crust apart from the edges.
Sprinkling the cheese on top of the dough before baking the crust will seal it and help the crust stay firm after topping it with the marinara sauce.

Step 3While the crust is baking, prepare the cheese ghosts and olive spiders. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. You can use all sorts of Halloween cookie cutters like these. Cut the olives in half to create the spider body and then cut thin slices for the legs.

Step 4Once the crust is baked and topped with the marinara sauce, top the pizza with the cheese ghosts and add 2 small pieces of chopped olives to make the eyes. Make the olive spiders (start with the legs and then top with the bodies). Place in the oven for about 5 minutes.

Step 5Don't throw away the inverse cut-outs, just use them in another batch. When baked, remove from the oven, garnish with fresh basil leaves and drizzle with olive oil. Happy Halloween!
