    Did these Ghoul Face Flatbreads scare you?

    Thankfully, these little guys don’t bite – but they taste delicious. Just a Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough, some olive oil and sea salt and a goblin green dipping sauce (a.k.a., charmoula) and this appetizer is the fright of the Halloween party! Muhahahahaaaaaaaa…

    First, brush a big ol’ baking sheet with some olive oil and roll out a pizza crust. I like using the thin crust dough so the flatbreads get all nice and crispy, but Pillsbury’s classic pizza dough is just as tasty.

    Use a knife, scissors, cookie cutters, ice cream scoops or your friend Edward Scissorhands – I mean, hands – to cut and shape the crust into four frightening faces. If you’ve got little ones old enough to wield sharp objects under supervision, this is a great time to put their creative minds to work! And don’t just limit it to ghoulish faces – you can also shape the dough into spiders, ghosts, pumpkins, jack o’ lanterns, or whatever floats your witch’s broom.

    Next, brush the tops of the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake the breads until they’re brown and deliciously crispy.

    Meanwhile, make the charmoullllaaaaaaa (sorry, my Dracula voice got carried away there). This sauce is spicy, sassy, spooky – well, not really spooky, but definitely yummy – and is made with a whole lotta herbs and other green goodies, like jalapeno.

    Whir all the ingredients together in a food processor until you’ve got a goopy green dipping sauce. (Bonus: Use any leftover sauce to pour over fish or chicken – it tastes like MAGIC.)

    Looks like those flatbreads are do done did!

    Now get a good scare out of your freaky friends, and get dipping!
