I got a little tired of being the 4th person to show up to the Halloween party with dirt and worms. And being that I’m Ukrainian, I love anything that even vaguely resembles a pierogi/perogy OR a pizza pop (pizza pocket), as do my kids. So this savory Halloween recipe seemed like the perfect combination. That was my inspiration for these Healthy Phantom Pierogi Pizza Pops. I also wanted to create a fun, healthy and quick Halloween party snack for kids; one that they could even help to make themselves! These are also Weight Watchers friendly @ only 1 WW freestyle smart point per 2 pizza pops!
I always struggled with what to make for a Halloween potluck. I’d spend way too much time looking up cute recipes online and they were either waaaay too involved or so popular you just knew that you wouldn’t be the only one showing up with it. I wanted to do something original so I came up with this Halloween snack recipe.
These ghost piergogi pizza pockets are healthy ( baked, not fried), easy, you can make them ahead and freeze and they a unique Halloween finger food to make for your own party or take along to a Halloween party. So, if you are looking for easy Halloween food ideas, then give this a try!

Phantom Pierogi/Perogy Pizza Pops
- 1 -4 oz can of sliced black olives
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- ½ cup pizza sauce
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
- Prepare mashed potatoes, as per package directions. Cool.
- Add remaining filling ingredients.
- Roll out dough into a large rectangle.
- Cut into circles with a round cookie cutter or rim of a mug or cup (about 3 inches wide)
- Drop about a teaspoon of mixture into middle of dough circle.
- Pull one edge down over the other, as you would a perogy and seal edges (you may need to use a little water if it won't seal): See this link for video instruction on How to stuff and seal a perogy.
- Then simply shape it into a phantom/ghoulish figure, as in the photo above. They don't all have to look identical. In fact, it's better if they don't.
- Add 2 sliced black olives for eyes and 1 for mouth (I do some without the mouth to mix them up a bit.)
- Bake in preheat oven for 8- 10 minutes (or until lightly browned on bottom).
- Dip: Mix your favourite pizza sauce and sour cream together and serve.
