Spooky Spider Pizza Bagel Bites

As needed
Non-stick cooking spray
Mini bagels, sliced in half
2 cups
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Black olives, whole, pitted
About 2 pouches
Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano® PIZZAMARINARA™

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Line a large baking sheet with foil and grease with non-stick cooking spray.  Arrange bagels on baking sheet and evenly spread each half with a spoonful of Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano® PIZZAMARINARA™. Sauce as desired.  Sprinkle each bagel-half with shredded mozzarella cheese.

For the olive spiders, cut 6 olives in half lengthwise and place in the center of each bagel half to form the spider’s “body”.  Next, slice the top tip of the 12 remaining olives horizontally across to form spider heads.  Finally to form spider legs, take the remaining olive portion and slice each in in half lengthwise, and then slice each half into 4 equal, thin slices to create spider legs.  Arrange 4 spider legs on each side of the spider body to create your spooky spider.  Repeat with each bagel half.  Bake Spooky Spider Bagel Bites in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bagel is toasted and the cheese is melted.

Tip:  No mini bagels?  No problem! Start with your favorite savory bagel and use the same technique to create your spooky olive spiders.  You can even add 2 or 3 creepy crawlers to each bagel, and additional toppings like mushrooms and pepperoni.
