Where To Get Jack-O’-Lantern Pizzas This Halloween
Here are a few pizza chains offering pumpkin-shaped pies with pepperoni smiles.
Is a jack-o’-lantern-shaped pizza a trick, a treat or both? Discuss. Or better yet, just dig into one — grab a slice and take a bite.
This Halloween, several pizza chains are offering party-perfect, pumpkin-shaped pies — topped with cheese and, often, a cheesy grin. Here are a few jack-o’-lantern pizza deals that will definitely deliver a smile. (Cute or creepy — you be the judge.)
Aldi: The supermarket chain is bringing back its pumpkin- and ghost-shaped frozen pizzas for 2023. Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Halloween Pumpkin or Ghost Pizza on October 4. Priced at $4.99, these pizzas are seasonal Aldi Finds and tend to go fast.
Casey’s: The Jack-O’-Lantern Pizza at Casey’s is served unsliced, made from its from-scratch dough, and topped with marinara, mozzarella and a face made with pepperoni and black olives. It’s available for a limited time for delivery or pickup and offers 2x Points for Casey’s rewards members.
Chuck E. Cheese: As part of its fourth annual Halloween Boo-tacular celebration, the family-friendly dining and entertainment chain is bringing back its Pumpkin Pepperoni Pizza this year. The seasonally appropriate pizza costs around $24, and is available individually for dine-in, delivery or carryout — or as part of a Boo-tacular Family Pack (two one-topping pizzas, slime cookie, goody bag, 250 e-tickets and activity sheet, for $49.99). Other items on Chuck E. Cheese’s special Halloween menu include a Creepy Cupcake, a Slime Cookie and Dippin’ Dots Eye Scream, featuring edible slime, gummy worms and a candy eyeball. While the pizza features cheese, pepperoni and two black olives, the brand promises that “there’s no actual pumpkin on this pizza.” Chuck E. Cheese’s Halloween celebration from October 2 to 31 at all locations in the U.S. and Canada includes free candy for the kids, free e-tickets for costume-wearers and at least 30 minutes of free play time.
Papa Johns: Papa Johns’ Jack-O’-Lantern pizza, which the chain calls its “spookiest pie ever,” is returning again this year. As in years past, the large, pumpkin-shaped pie is served unsliced and features a thin crust topped with vine-ripened-tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni and black olives. It’s made to pair with Papa Johns’ lineup of sides and can be ordered for $10.99 for a limited time, from October 23 through October 31.
Papa Murphy’s: Promising to be a “monster hit” again this year, the Jack-O Pizza is back at Papa Murphy’s for the month of October — and only for the month of October. Jack-o’-lantern-shaped, smiling and topped with pepperoni, the Jack-O Pizza, which you bake yourself, can be ordered online for pickup or delivery, an “order today, bake tomorrow” option that seems perfect for an easy post-trick-or-treating meal.
Peter Piper Pizza: Peter Piper Pizza wants to help you get into the Halloween spirit with its “Spooky Special,” a deal that consists of a large one-topping Jack-o’-Lantern pizza (cheese, pepperoni, olive eyes) and a Halloween crunch dessert for $21.99. The chain is also offering an Orange Scream Halloween ICEE starting at $3.49.
