Classic white pizza takes a ghostly turn with this recipe, which is made with three cheeses and pitted black olives for eyes. Using prepared pizza dough makes it easy to make, and without any sauce to simmer, this is a perfect, quick-prep Halloween treat.
Plan to serve three to four bite-sized foods that don't require reheating and can be laid out for the entire stretch of the holiday party, like this smoked salmon and cream cheese roll studded with chives.
There are endless restaurants in Atlanta specializing in farm-to-table, meat-and-three, soul food and other variations on Southern fare. A homespun, unpretentious entry in those ranks is Southern Bistro, a comfort-food centric spot from husband and wife Nancy and Colman Goodrich who do especially well with down-home appetizers with a Southern flair like boiled peanut hummus, a solid pimento cheese served with toast points, ham and collard green egg rolls and, of course, the in-house variation on fried green tomatoes served with goat cheese and sweet pepper jelly. Don't expect fancy, cutting-edge foodie fare, but do expect good at this neighborhood spot especially good for a quick lunch.
