The Ultimate Pizza Costume Guide: Inspiration, Where To Buy + DIY Resources

The beauty of Halloween is that it evolves throughout the different stages of a person’s life. Young adults, parents and children have fun while celebrating in different ways.

Some people love the candy. Others love the costumes. Some love seeing the joy on their kid’s face while trick or treating. Some people love getting drunk and going to a party.

My favorite part about Halloween is dressing up. It is a fun way to express yourself. I get particularly nostalgic about my Halloween costume in 2011. I dressed up as a slice of pizza.

My pizza slice costume was a last minute endeavor. After researching online and a trip to the craft store, my mom was kind enough to help me create the costume.

That evening, my friends and I went to a Halloween party. My costume was a huge hit that received many compliments.

Our resource is designed to get you inspired and help you create the perfect pizza costume (for yourself, a significant other, a child or a pet) or to just buy one quickly for your Halloween festivities.

Alyssa paired her store-bought outfit with cute black heels and leggings. This is a quick on-the-go costume for when you’re feeling fancy but still want to honor your favorite food.

You can also team up with other friends to match pizza costumes. Double the pizza is double the fun! Consider asking your friends if they’d be interested in doing a group pizza costume for Halloween this year.

While these two didn’t dress up for Halloween specifically, they showcased their pizza costumes during Pizzadelphia Fest. This goes to show that pizza costumes can be worn year-round, for any pizza-celebrating occasion.

Some people have two loves in life: Pizza, and their significant other.

We’ve seen the classic couples costumes:

  • Cupid and an arrow,
  • Tarzan and Jane,
  • King and Queen,
  • Etc.

But what is more romantic than pairing up with your boo and dressing up like your favorite food? By wearing pizza costume matched with your loved one, you’ll truly be the cheesiest couple on Halloween.

Below are some awesome examples of couples dressed up as pizza.

This couple did a fun spin on a paired costume by having one of them be the pizza, and the other one being the “pizza man”. Consider this costume delivered.

Children Pizza Costumes

No one enjoys Halloween more than children. It’s a magical time filled with family, spookiness, candy, and — of course — plenty of opportunities to eat pizza.

As kids grow up, they’ll get the chance to pick out their own type of costume. Pizza is a food enjoyed by all ages, so we aren’t surprised that there are plenty of examples of kids dressed as pizza.

Corgis are automatically adorable no matter what they wear, and this pup in a pizza costume is no exception. Just look at that face!

Cat Pizza Costumes

While cats may be a bit more reluctant to put a costume on for Halloween, some are more tolerant than others. If there’s one thing people possibly like taking photos of more than themselves, it’s their pets.

We’ll assume that the below cats are perfectly fine with being dressed up, and no humans were harmed in the making of these pictures.
