"Mozzarella" Spooky Pizzas on Sesame Barley Crust
Ingredients: Crust: 1/2 cup water 1.5 teaspoons active yeast 2 teaspoons raw sugar 1/4 cup coarsely ground white Sesame seeds 1/2 cup Barley flour 1/2 cup bread flour 1/3 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon dried basil 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil (evoo) 2-3 Tablespoons bread flour for dusting. Sun-dried Tomato Marinara sauce: 1 Tablespoon evoo 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 bay leaf 2 ripe large tomatoes 3-4 garlic cloves 2 Tablespoons sun-dried tomato 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs(I used basil and parsley) 1/3 teaspoon salt Mozzarella: 1 cup good quality full fat coconut milk (canned) 2 teaspoons agar powder (china grass) 1/3 teaspoon salt a generous pinch of kala namak/black salt 3/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (or coconut vinegar) 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice 3/4 Tablespoon Tapioca starch/flour 1 teaspoon cornstarch (or potato starch) Method: Mozzarella: Keep all the ingredients measured and ready. Heat the coconut milk on low-medium heat until warm-hot. Add the agar powder and whisk continuously till it dissolves completely. 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add the vinegar, salts, lemon juice and keep whisking for a minute. Add the starches and keep whisking for a few seconds until well combined. Remove from heat and pour in well oiled container. (You can add herbs, nutritional yeast and seasonings at this point. mix and let set) I oiled the containers with extra virgin olive oil. Let set in the refrigerator for atleast an hour. Sun-dried tomato Marinara sauce: In a pan, add oil and heat on low-medium. Add onions, dried herbs and bay leaf. Cook for 5-6 minutes until translucent. Blend tomatoes, garlic and sundried tomatoes into a puree. Add the tomato puree to the onions. Add salt, herbs and cook on low-medium heat until the sauce thickens. 10-15 minutes Crust: In a bowl, add warm water, yeast and sugar. Mix well and let sit for 10 minutes until frothy. Add the flours, salt, evoo, herbs and mix well for 2 minutes. Cover the bowl with a damp towel. Let the dough sit/rise for 1.5 hours or until doubled. Add 2 Tablespoons of flour, gather it and knead into a smooth dough for 2-3 minutes. Divide the dough and shape into shapes of choice. Ghosts. squares, pumpkins. Top with Sundried Tomato marinara, Kalamata olives and cheese strips and cheese ghosts. I used olive slices and small olive pieces to make the eyes. Bake in preheated 400 degrees F oven for 12-13 minutes. Broil on Lo for half a minute to melt the cheese. Remove from oven, let cool for a minute and serve. This Mozarella does melt and get slightly stringy!

I've made something like this before, but I've never tried this kind of crust. Sounds great!

Even if there is no special occasion I will decorate my pizzas. Why have a boring homemade pizza when it can be smiling back at you with olive eyes and a bell pepper smile!?

Oh these look adorable. Is it possible to substitute it to a different cheese?
