Join the Halloween fun and get festive with my Spooky Spider Pizza recipe.  This savory New York style cheese pizza is great for entertaining family and friends while the kids trick-or-treat. The artisan style recipe is a quick and easy way to impress the whole crowd with its spooky spider black olive toppings.

For this recipe I used Cali’flour Foods cauliflower spicy jalapeño  pizza crust. I love this brand because their crust is hand-crafted, gluten free and made with fresh cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, eggs, jalapeño, and spice. So don’t feel guilty about your pizza cravings, go indulge with this healthy pizza recipe.

For the perfect spider topping, cut the black olives in half for the body of the spider and for the legs cut the other half into 8 thin slices.
