  • 1 13.8-oz tube Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust
  • pizza sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • pepperonis
  • sliced black olives


  • Spray a large cookie sheet or pizza pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spread pizza crust out on cookie sheet. Pat down with fingers to make a large, even rectangle.
  • Take a pizza cutter or knife and cut about 2 1/2 inch long, one inch wide strips on both sides of the dough, (I eyeballed it) leaving about 4 inches in the middle for the filling.
  • Cut off the third strips on each side and discard. This will be where your mummy's eyes go.
  • Spread pizza sauce, pepperoni and cheese (or whatever toppings you like!) down the middle strip.
  • Now it's mummy wrapping time! Starting at the top, lay each flap left to right, over eachother making them overlap or cross. Make sure to leave a little space where your eyes should go! Continue to overlap flaps until done.
  • Place a pepperoni and olive slice in area with no flaps, for the eyes. Bake in preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until pizza dough is golden brown and cooked through. Slice strips from bottom to top to serve. Enjoy!
