Hello Halloween lovers! I’m Alycia, from Leesh and Lu’s Recipe Box. We are stoked to be a part of Spooktacular September this year and be sharing some fun ideas for your Halloween menu.
Stromboli happens to be a family favorite and it didn’t take much more effort to put this spooky twist on it. For me when it comes to Halloween food, there are some things that I just cannot handle. It has to actually look appetizing for me to eat it. Jell-o worms? No, thanks. This yummy mummy isn’t too out of my comfort zone. It’s delicious as well as spooky and if your kids are anything like mine they will go crazy for it. Definite crowd-pleaser.
- Start with your favorite pizza or breadstick dough. Our favorite recipe is at the bottom if you keep scrolling.
- Roll it out into a large rectangle, as long as and slight wider than a cookie sheet.
- Top with your favorite sauce, cheese, and pizza toppings. Visit our pizza post if you need suggestions on what to stuff your mummy with. Just steer clear of toppings with too much moisture here since they will make the mummy soggy. (ie, pineapple, raw peppers)
- Snip the sides with kitchen shears or a pizza cutter and start wrapping your mummy up.
- Give him some eyes and bake to golden perfection!
- For the dough:
- 1½ cups warm water
- 2 Tbsp white sugar
- 1 Tbsp instant yeast (I use SAF brand instant yeast)
- ½ tsp salt
- 3 - 3½ cups all-purpose flour
- Olive Oil
- Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
- Your favorite sauce and fillings: Ham, sausage, pepperoni, and olives is a favorite combo at our house.
- Mozzarella cheese
- Pepperoni, black olives, green olive, cheese for mummy face.
- In mixing bowl add warm water, sugar and instant yeast. Let sit for 3 minutes or so until sugar and yeast are softened.
- Add salt and flour and knead in mixer for 3 minutes or by hand for 8-10 minutes. You want the dough to pull away from the sides of the bowl or counter
- Place dough on lightly floured counter top or bread board and cover with a clean towel and let it rest for 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350. Roll dough into a rectangle about as long as and slightly wider than a cookie sheet. Transfer dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheet and center it with the sides draped over. Put sauce (not too much or it can get soggy), cheese, and toppings inside.
- Using kitchen shears, cut the sides into 1 inch wide strips. Begin folding them over onto each other and pinching them to seal to create your mummy.
- Brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Give the mummy eyes, and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown. Let set for 10 minutes before slicing.
