We made it! We’ve come to our 3rd and final recipe for Shudder‘s The Last Drive-In! We think this one is pretty fantastic though it definitely took some work (we actually shot this one twice!). This time we’ve created a pizza recipe, Pinhead’s Pizza, inspired by Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. In the words of our friend Johnny, we have such bites to show you!
In Hellraiser, “A puzzle box reveals a realm of sadistic monsters led by a being named Pinhead, who torture the depraved man who unlocks it. Escaping Pinhead’s wrath, what remains of Frank hides out in his attic, until a chance encounter leads him to enlist his brother’s wife Julia, with whom he had a passionate affair, to lure victims home so Frank can feed off their blood.”
After creating our recipe for Puzzle Piece Pizza for Jigsaw we’ve been itching to do another pizza recipe. Hellraiser seemed like a fun fit for this. Hooks and skin can be recreated pretty easily with melting cheese. The fun thing about Pinhead’s Pizza is it can be created in either a full-size pizza or in an 8-inch personal size pizza. We topped ours with cheese and fresh basil. You don’t want to put too many toppings on this or it will lose it’s “skin look”. The chains we used were 12-inch cuts of chain from Home Depot and were less than a dollar a foot. We made the hooks from framing wire. All in all, it is a pretty cool effect and highly customizable.

The Geeks have such bites to show you! They've created a recipe perfect for movie night, Pinhead's Pizza, inspired by Clive Barker's Hellraiser.
- 1-2 Pizza Crusts (use a crust of your preference, with a marathon in mind we recommend a pre-made crust. We also used 2 8-inch ones instead of a large one.)
- Classico Pizza Sauce
- Kraft with Philadelphia Cream Cheese Shredded Mozzarella
- Italian Seasoning
- Fresh Basil (We used a chiffonade method to cut it)
- Prepare your crust per package instructions. (Boboli crusts don't require pre-cooking which is nice for a marathon.)
- Top pizza with sauce.
- Arrange cheese leaving the center (or anywhere you want "the skin" to look torn).
- Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Remove from oven.
- Top with fresh basil.
- Place hooks and chains.
Quantities will depend on the size of your pizza. Generally, one package of everything will be more than enough.
The chains used in the photo were purchased at Home Depot in the bulk chain section for about $1 per foot. These definitely help set the tone with this recipe.
