Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large pan, mix tomatoes, oil, garlic, oregano, crushed red pepper, if desired, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce has thickened slightly, about 20 minutes.

  • Place bagel halves on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread 2 Tbsp. sauce onto each bagel half. (Cover and refrigerate or freeze any remaining sauce for another use.) Top each with 1 rounded Tbsp. shredded cheese.

  • Slice 1 olive in half lengthwise. Place 1 olive half, cut side down, in center of 1 bagel half to make a spider body. Slice remaining olive half into 8 thin crescents to make 8 spider legs. Arrange 4 legs on each side of body to complete spider. Repeat with remaining olives and bagel halves until all bagel pizzas are decorated.

  • Bake pizzas until toasted and cheese has melted, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve.
