Take any ordinary pizza and add spiderwebs and olive spiders to give it a spooky touch. This is great for Halloween.

This pizza is super easy to make for Halloween. I love the contrast of colours from the pizza, the web made from ranch dressing, and the spiders made of olives. Oh, and it's super yummy, too!
I poured my ranch into a condiment squeeze bottle to get finer lines for the spiderweb.
Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1 pizza
- 12 black olives
- 5 Tbsp ranch dressing
- 1 condiment squeeze bottle (optional)
- To make the spiders, cut a black olive in half lengthwise.
- One half of the olive will be the spider body, the other half will be thinly sliced to create legs.
- Lay another olive on its side and cut off a third of the end. This will be the spider head.
- Laid out, each spider's pieces will look like this, disassembled. Continue making more spiders with the other olives.
- Pour ranch dressing into a squeeze bottle with a fine tip.
- Using the ranch, draw a large asterisk onto the pizza.
- Starting near the center of the pizza, draw wide upside down U's between each line to make your spiderweb.
- Keep adding the U's, working your way out to the edge of the pizza.
- Build your little spiders on the web.

It was Thanksgiving Day here in Canada yesterday and my son and family hosted the turkey dinner.
I brought over several dishes to compliment the meal, including a platter of bbq roasted shepherd peppers drizzled lightly with olive oil and a hint of minced garlic.
I made a dozen spiders per your how-to and garnished the peppers with them. They were an absolute hit and the new name is "spider peppers". I think I've started yet another family trend in presentation.
Thanks for the idea.

I love that you made them, Mina! This makes me so so so so so happy! Glad it was a hit and keep it going with the presentation. I think it's soooo fun to be artistic with food presentation :)
