When our children were very young and anxious to go out trick or treating, I would willingly defer to my husband and allow him to prepare dinner for the family.
He makes excellent pizzas and pizzas are perfect for Halloween. We could easily grab a piece of pizza, eat it before we went out and finish dinner after we returned. But the real reason we always loved our Halloween pizza was simply because it was so much fun to see what he would do to freak me out and entertain the children simultaneously.
Halloween Spider Web Pizza
Have you ever had spiders on your pizza? I have!!!
Spiders don't normally freak me out too much. Since I grew up with four brothers, none of the creatures that normally frighten females really bother me much. However, having spiders on my pizza really did get to me the first time my husband decided to decorate our pizza with spiders. I don't believe I had ever screeched at that volume or in that fear filled high octave previously.
Now he adds a spider on the pizza each year in hopes of getting the same initial reaction he sparked the first time. I always hate to disappoint him so I have to "act" like the spider is such a surprise and so very awful, but I have never been able to repeat my mournful wail.
It doesn't look very frightening in the photo, but I assure you, if you are eating by candlelight, that spider looks down right evil! Oh, and those horrible rubber hairs on his legs just send chills down my back when I reach for a piece of pizza and accidentally touch the spider. Eek!
If you want to have a bit of harmless eerie fun this year on Halloween, try decorating your pizza with spiders!
