Spider Web Dessert Pizza - What a Tricky Halloween Pizza idea.  Super easy with Rhodes Frozen dough.
It is almost Halloween, can you believe it?  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I think I have just as much fun as the kids on that day. I wanted to make something that was not only easy, but both kids and adults would enjoy. Rhodes Dinner Rolls make the perfect pizza crust and when you top it with fruit filling, streusel topping and cream cheese frosting, it is simply irresistible.
 
With just a few short steps, you can turn an ordinary dessert pizza into a spooky spider web dessert pizza for Halloween. I did try out a few different techniques for making the spider webs. This one was the easiest and looked the most like an actual spider web.

1.  Combine four thawed dinner rolls and roll out into a medium circle on a lightly floured surface.  Repeat with remaining four dinner rolls and transfer to a greased baking sheet.  Spread 1/3 cup of pie filling over each pizza.  Since I don't care for chunks of fruit, I pureed my pie filling, but that is completely optional.

6.  To make it more spooky, top with plastic spiders or spider rings.  The fun part is the kids can keep the plastic rings after they finish eating their slice of pizza.  I picked up a bag of these spiders at the dollar store and I did wash them before placing them on the pizza :)  
This Spider Web Dessert Pizza turned out delicious and you can make several different versions by switching up the flavor of pie filling you use.  Try it, it's easy!

Spider Web Dessert Pizza
5.0 / 5  (2 votes, 3 reviews )

Ingredients

8 frozen Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed
2/3 c. cherry pie filling (or your favorite flavor)
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbl. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 Tbl. unsalted butter, cold
store-bought cream cheese frosting

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine four dinner rolls and roll out onto a lightly floured surface into a medium circle. The dough might pull back at first, but just keep rolling. Repeat with remaining four dinner rolls. The dough does puff up quite a bit while baking, so roll out fairly thin. Place medium pizzas onto a large greased baking sheet. Top each pizza with 1/3 cup of pie filling. I chose to puree my pie filling, but that is completely optional. Next, make the streusel topping. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and unsalted butter. Using your clean hands, rub the ingredients together until it resembles wet sand. Sprinkle evenly over pizzas.

Place in preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until bottom is browned and top is bubbly. If air bubbles start to form while baking, you can pop them using a toothpick. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Meanwhile, place frosting into a piping bag that has been fitted with a round tip (I used a Wilton #12 tip). Once the pizza has cooled, pipe three to four circles onto pizza, starting with a small circle in the center and then working out from there. Take a toothpick and starting with the center circle, drag the toothpick to the outer edge. Continue around entire pizza. Top with plastic spiders. Slice and serve.
