Spider Bagel Pizza Bites Recipe

Ingredients :
1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes 
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 
4 cloves garlic, chopped 
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 tsp. dried 
Pinch of crushed red pepper, optional 
Salt and pepper 
8 whole-wheat or regular mini bagels, sliced in half crosswise 
6 ounces shredded mozzarella 
8 pitted large black olives 
8 pitted large green olives

How To Make Spider Bagel Pizza Bites :
Step 1
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.

Step 2
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.

Step 3
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.

Step 4
Bake pizzas until toasted and cheese has melted, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve.
