These buffalo turkey pizza skulls are such a fun and unique Halloween dinner idea! This was my husbands Halloween recommendation after he saw it on Pinterest! It’s perfect for a quick dinner or snack for a group. I highly recommend marinara or ranch as a dipping sauce as there is a lot of dough and not much sauce inside. Additionally, make sure to choose a hot sauce you love as it’s the main flavor of the insides of your skulls. We are a Red’s hot sauce family so that’s what I choose and it worked out beautifully. I’ve also seen people sub the meats for other options like chicken or pepperoni. So feel free to customize any way you’d like!
They do require a special skull pan to create the skull shape. I found the pan at Target and you can get the pan at this link: Skull Pan. Mine was only $10 which made it worth it to me! Once you have the right pan the rest of the dish is super easy to make!
Overall Review: 5/5
These buffalo turkey pizza skulls are fun, different and super festive. They taste great and are easy to make which is a huge plus in my book! Dinner doesn’t have to be stiff and boring, have fun with it and cooking becomes a hobby instead of a chore! I especially like to customize things for the holidays because it gives a fun spin on your everyday dishes.
Also, Happy Halloween everyone! Let me know in the comments what you are dressing up as this year! If you are interested in more recipes you can find them here: Recipe Reviews. As always be good and make smart choices. xoxo-Kayla
