If your little Ghosts and Goblins are anything like mine, getting them to eat something on Halloween before running out to trick or treat is always a challenge. That’s when I try to whip out a cute and quick kid-friendly dinner to trick them into eating something besides candy.

Halloween is always a mad dash, and that’s why I love that you can make this Pepperoni Pumpkin Pizza Pie in less than 15 minutes in our new Pizza & More oven. (No preheating required!!!)
