Ingredients:

1-sheet prepared pizza dough

¼-cup cornmeal

¼-cup pecans, walnuts or soy nuts (optional)

· In the bowl of a food processor place the nuts, spinach, garlic, basil, oregano and parmesan cheese, pulse till a paste forms.

· Add the salt and pepper.

· With the processor running stream in ½ cup oil, it will become a thick sauce, if you want pesto thinner add more oil until desired consistency.

· On a cornmeal dusted surface, roll out the pizza dough into a rectangle, cut into 12 pieces.

· Place on prepared baking sheet.

· Spread the pesto on each dough slice.

· Sprinkle the bacon on top of the pesto.

· Bake for 8 mins.

· While baking the first round, use a ghost cookie cutter, cut the mozzarella into 12 ghost shapes. Save leftover cheese to use later.

· Place one ghost on top of each dough square.

· But the olives on the ghost cheese for the eyes.

· Bake for 15-20 mins or until crust is done and the ghost just start to melt.

Tip: Serve with your favorite marinara dipping sauce.
