Halloween is Sunday, so scary movies will be shown all weekend long. Of course, if you don't like what's on TV, you can rent your own selection of DVDs--and then enjoy with a pizza!
If you could design your own scary movie marathon, what would it include? I love old movies, so here are a few for my list:
- Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
- The Bad Seed (1956)
- Psycho (1960)
- The Cat People (1942 version)
- Island of Dr. Moreaux (1933 version)
- Cloverfield (2008)
- Paranormal Activity (2007)
- The Sixth Sense (1999)
- Signs (2002)
- The Others (2001)
- Now that we've got our movies lined up, time for pizza! Here's an easy recipe that's cheaper than delivery and uses no gas for pickup! The dough is adapted from a pizza recipe found in I'm in the Mood For Food: In the Kitchen with Garfield, by Jim Davis and Barbara Albright.
Scary Movie Night Pizza
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1 cup luke warm water
1 T olive oil
1 T sugar
1 t salt
2 1/2 to 3 cups all purpose flour
1 14 oz. can pizza sauce (I use Contidina)
5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
assorted toppings of choice (pepperoni, onions, peppers, ham, etc.)
Pour water in a large bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water, then stir to dissolve. Stir in oil, sugar and salt. Add flour gradually to form a stiff dough. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Lightly flour hands and knead dough until it's smooth and elastic. Place dough in an oiled bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (about 35-45 minutes).
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly spray two pizza pans or baking dishes with cooking spray. Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll out two 12 inch rounds. Place each round on baking sheet or pizza pans. Spread each with pizza sauce, sprinkle with assorted toppings, then top with cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Makes 6-8 servings.
What are some of your favorite scary movies, and do you prefer pick-up, delivery, or pizza made from scratch?
