Mummy Pizza Braid

This Mummy Pizza Bread is the perfect, festive Halloween dinner. Whether you serve this at a Halloween party or before your trick-or-treaters head out the door, it is sure to be a hit! This recipe uses store-bought pizza dough and sauce so it can be thrown together in a hurry.

I love making fun Halloween party foods for my kids.  This Mummy Pizza Braid is easy to make so you can throw it together before you head out trick-or-treating!

How to make a mummy pizza Braid:


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  While the oven is heating up, roll out some store-bought pizza dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

It can be a little hard to use a rolling pin once the dough is on the baking sheet, so just use your hands to spread it out on the baking sheet.

Add marinara down the center of the pizza dough, being sure to leave a few inches of dough on each side.

Top the sauce with shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.  You can also add other pizza toppings if you want!

Use a pizza cutter to cut in about 3 inches from the outside of the pizza crust.  You want the strips to be about 1/2 inch wide.

After cutting the edges of the Mummy Pizza into strips, alternate folding them over the center of the pizza.

As you can see in the picture, I didn’t alternate the strips perfectly.  I like the look of them being a little unorganized and messy, just like the wraps of a mummy would be.

When you reach the top of the Mummy Pizza Braid, be sure to leave an opening for the eyes.  I placed 2 olive slices on the top where I wanted the eyes to be.


Brush melted butter on the top of the Mummy Pizza Braid.

Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top and place in the oven.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cut into slices and serve.

Happy Halloween!
