A Happy Halloween

AJ Halloween 09_edited-1

We had a very happy Halloween and hope you did too.

trick or treating 09

We celebrated with school parties, an awesome costume party at my friend Niki's house, a whole day carving pumpkins and decorating the house (better late then never right?), trick or treating and a glass of Sam's home brew (a.k.a. Claw's Ale).

cobweb pizzas

We made these cobweb pizzas with black olive spiders for the party. The idea came from Woman's Day magazine, but I used my own pizza dough.

Pizza Dough

4 1/4 (give or take) flour
1 packet of yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees)

Mix ingredients, knead, let rise, when dough has doubled in size roll into desired size, brush with olive oil, bake at 450 degrees. For a crispier crust, bake one side until light brown. Take it out, flip it over and then add sauce and toppings. The pizzas were about 6 inches and I think I got about 18. You could also do letters, shapes, numbers, etc. with the string cheese.
