Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and so we really enjoy coming up with spooky snacks and treats. This is a nice alternative to all of the sugary sweet things for this holiday and provides some healthy carbs and protein.

These Monster Pizza Bagels are the perfect quick and easy Halloween food. You can make them as a snack or alongside some fruits and veggies, they can be a complete meal. The other great thing is that these come together in little to no time.

To make these, you’ll need bagels, and you can use regular bagels, thin bagels or mini bagels. You will also need marinara or pizza sauce, shredded cheese and your choice of pizza toppings. One great idea is to prepare a whole package of bagels and then let everyone put on the toppings of their choice.
