Who doesn’t love an excuse to make a tasty pizza? These are great fun to make. You get to try olives and be creative with food! How realistic can you make your spider sitting on top of a cheesy web?

What you need:

  • Pizza dough
  • Tomato puree
  • Cheese (dairy, or plant-based)
  • Olives
  • Plum tomatoes
  • Flour

What to do:

Step 1: Lightly dust your surface with flour. Make up your dough as the packet instructs.

Step 2: Lightly dust your rolling pin. Evenly roll out your dough. Using a cookie cutter, cut out your pizzas.

Step 3: Place your pizza dough onto a greased baking tray. Prick the centre of the circles to allow heat to escape.

Step 4: Spread on your tomato puree.

Step 5: Sprinkle on your grated cheese.

Step 6: To make the spiders, chop your olive or tomato in half, lengthways. Put one half in the centre as the spider’s body. Use the remaining half to thinly slice out 8 legs. You will need a couple of tomatoes/olives for you. Place four legs on each side of the body.

Step 7: Bake on 180C for approx 12-15 minutes, until the dough has browned and the cheese has melted.

Step 8: Let an adult help you remove from the oven. Allow to cool. Tuck in and enjoy those scrummy, juicy spiders.
