Treat your tricksters with some ghoulishly great cheesy witch's fingers complete with a bloody dipping sauce. These gruesome breadstick fingers are sure to spook out any guest.
Make up the pizza dough as indicated on the pack, using 90-100ml (3 1/2fl oz) warm water to create a soft, but not sticky, dough. Knead for 5 minutes until elastic – where the dough can be stretched some way without breaking. Knead in the finely grated Cheddar.
Line a baking sheet with nonstick baking paper and preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Divide the dough into 14 equal portions. Roll each piece into a long, ‘finger’ shape, making sure there are slightly wider areas to make a spooky knuckle or two. Place on the baking sheet and firmly press a single almond or triangle of pepperoni into the end to make a spooky nail. Bake the fingers for about 15 minutes, until pale golden and risen.
To make the dip, warm the olive oil in a saucepan set over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for a minute before adding the tomatoes and a pinch of sugar. Mash the tomatoes in the pan with the back of a wooden spoon and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thick. Cool slightly and serve alongside the witch’s fingers, for dipping.
