Mummy pizzas

IMG_8734

The pizza dough recipe from the Basic Cookbook makes the perfect dough to create your own little ‘mummy’ pizzas.

You will need the ingredients for the pizza dough, tomato paste, mozzarella cheese slices and twiggy sticks (or anything else you would like to use as the eyes).

All you need to do is follow the recipe for the pizza dough. Once the dough is ready roll it out and use a cookie cutter to cut out your shapes.

Cut the twiggy sticks into pieces and press them into the dough as eyes. Spread tomato paste to cover the ‘faces’.

Cut the mozzarella cheese slices into small thin strips and then place across the ‘faces’ in a zig zag pattern.

I baked them in the oven for 8-10 minutes and lost the ‘mummy’ look I had made with the cheese strips after the cheese had melted. I cut some more  cheese strips and made a new zig zag pattern and put them under the grill for 30-60 seconds. They looked perfect as soon as I took them out of the oven but by the time I took my photo the cheese had lost some of the pattern. So I would probably only put them under the grill for 15-30 seconds next time :)
