Ingredients
  • One 1-pound ball prepared pizza dough
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling the dough
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella (about 6 ounces)
  • 4 pitted black olives, ends trimmed and each cut into 3 rounds
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Divide the pizza dough into 4 pieces. Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll and stretch on a lightly floured surface into an 8- to 9-inch oval. Transfer to a prepared baking sheet and pull the end of the dough to one side into a tapered end to create a ghost shape. Repeat with the remaining dough, putting 2 ghosts on each baking sheet. Don't worry if they all look slightly different-- it will give the ghosts personality.

  • Mix the oil and garlic together in a small bowl and evenly brush over the 4 ghosts; sprinkle with a total of 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bake until the crusts are golden and set, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the pans top to bottom halfway through the baking time.

  • Mix the ricotta, Parmesan and Italian seasoning together in a small bowl and spread over the ghosts, stopping about 1/2-inch from the edge. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and return to the oven until the ghosts are hot and the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes more. Place 2 pieces of olive on each ghost for the eyes and1 piece on each for a mouth.

  • Transfer the ghosts to individual plates and serve.
