Halloween is creeping up on us! With it being just 4 days away, it will be here before we all know it. Are you ready?

We definitely are far from it. We have the Halloween costumes purchased.  The only thing we’re missing are the pumpkins. This is the second year in a row that we have waited until the very last minute to purchase and carve our pumpkins.

Thankfully the one thing I do have planned is the Halloween food before the kids head out trick or treating. I always aim to serve up quick and easy dishes on Halloween. Usually I will plan out a slow cooker meal, but this year I am doing something a little different. I plan to let my kids design their own Jack O’ Lantern English Muffin Mini Pizzas.


These pizzas take all of 10 to 15 minutes to create and cook, and with a little bit of assistance from Mom or Dad this pizza makes a perfect “kids can cook” meal.

My son was certainly proud with his creation that we made this past Friday!


English Muffin Mini Pizzas

  • English Muffins
  • Turkey Pepperoni Slices (quartered)
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Kraft Shredded Mozzarella Cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 425F.
  2. While your oven is preheating, toast your english muffins lightly.
  3. Place the toasted english muffin halves on a baking sheet. Top with sauce (we omit this as my son and I don’t like pizza sauce), shredded cheese and pepperoni.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

In addition to this great recipe, Kraft Canada also has many great simple ideas for Halloween food to serve to give your trick or treaters the energy they need to ring those doorbells. Some of my favourites include: Cheesy Mummy Wrapped Dogs, Buffalo Chicken Wraps, and  Club Quesadillas.

    Perfect! Every year we are scrambling to put dinner together before the trick or treating begins. We can get the ingredients together earlier in the day and each one can assemble and eat when they are ready. Thank you for this!
