Try this simple recipe for an awesome quesadilla. Grab some tortillas, some brown rice, black beans, shredded cheese, sour cream, and some olives to make into your creepy olive spider. Just a little modifying, and you will have yourself a delicious and spooky-looking quesadilla. Or would you call it a spidey quesadilla? A spookadilla? Spidadilla? Eh, you get the idea.

Next, try picking up a bag of colored chips, avocados, sour cream, and olives to create an easy yet chilling rendition of Frankenstein’s monster.  This is a great, somewhat healthy snack, ahem, frankly speaking.

And who doesn’t love pizza? What about scary pizza on toast? When pizza is on toast, you must eat pizza all the time, no matter how terrifying. Just some cheese slices, spaghetti sauce, bread, and olives and you’ve got yourself some mummy toast pizza.

Try those same ingredients on a bigger scale to get this creepy-crawly (not actually) masterpizza. Just add a pizza crust and some green olives to the mix. Feel free to swap out the bread, English muffins and pizza crust to gluten-free bread, corn muffins, and cauliflower pizza crust.

For those who would rather leave out the bread, how about a skeleton made out of vegetables? Shown here are lettuce, celery, baby carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.
