Pizza FUN


  • One 12-ounce package multigrain sandwich thins
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • Ingredients will depend on your design:  

    Olives, peppers, pepperoni slices, mozzarella string cheese 

    or provolone cheese. 



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Split the sandwich thins into 2 halves and place 6 on each of 2 baking sheets. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons pizza sauce over each sandwich thin, spreading it to the edges. Add the toppings to create each of the monsters.
  3. Use olives, peppers, pepperoni slices, cheese cut into pieces to create your Frankenstein, ghost, mummy, spider, pumpkin designs.
  4. Bake all the pizzas until the cheese begins to melt, but before it bubbles, 8 to 10 minutes.
