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.

Are you considering dressing up in a pizza-themed costume this Halloween? I encourage it.

Our resource is designed to get you inspired and help you create (or find) the perfect pizza costume (for yourself, a significant other, a child or a pet).

Pizza Costume Inspiration

Need inspiration for your pizza costume? We’ve got you covered!

Below are examples of pizza costumes for women, men, children and pets.

Men/Women Pizza Costumes

Adults of all ages can enjoy looking like their favorite food on Halloween. Stores around the country sell pizza costumes for adults. What’s your favorite topping? What’s your favorite type of pizza — deep dish, thin crust, or something else? No matter what your preference is, you’re likely to find a costume that fits your style either online or in a store.

If for any reason you can’t find your perfect costume in a store, consider spending some time crafting it by hand. This is a great opportunity to show your creative side.

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.

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.

Couples Pizza Costumes

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 pair did a similar costume, but brought in a key ingredient: actual pizza. Needless to say, I want an invite to the party they’re going to.

Baby and Toddler Pizza Costumes

Parents all around the country have a hard decision to make when it comes to Halloween: what should they dress their child up as? Sure, you could go with a simple ghost, vampire, or candy corn — but why be simple when you could steal the show with a child’s pizza costume?

We scoured the internet and found the cutest children pizza costumes out there. Enjoy!

This proud mom joined in on the fun with a pizza t-shirt. Her kid looks so cute as a pizza slice, and her caption game is amazing.

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.

Families can join in on the fun, too. Here, the parents are the chefs, and their children are two little slices. What a great photo opp!

Here, mom crocheted his pizza costume by hand. What a fun way to support your kids and build family time. This costume will probably be passed down as a family heirloom for years to come.

Dog Pizza Costumes

While it may not be suitable for dogs to eat pizza, some pets have been known to sneak a bite or two.

These pet parents showed their love for pizza by dressing up fido. We’ll never quite know whether or not these dogs liked their costume, but it was definitely a good photo opportunity anyways.

This dog’s owner went all out with the costume. One question, though: How did they get the pup to stay still with that delicious-looking slice so close to his nose?!

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.

This cat doesn’t look too pleased to be dressed up as a pizza, but that may just be his face.

We predict that the costume was taken off approximately 10 seconds after this photo was taken.
