To show your sweetie how much you love them, you’re going to make your very own Alien facehugger pizza!

Alien Facehugger Pizza
(Makes one pizza)

  • One pillsbury classic pizza crust
  • One jar of pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Optional – olive oil, basil, seasoning, pepperoni
  • Take out the pizza crust
  • Cut into a circle
  • Spread a layer of cheese
  • Roll up the edges
  • Spread a layer of pizza sauce
  • If desired, layer pepperoni or other toppings
  • Use the extra dough to create your alien
  • Be careful not to pile the dough too thick or it will not cook
  • Consider cooking on a pizza stone or without a pan on the oven wire rack, in order to cook thoroughly
  • Bake in the over at 425 degrees for 25 min or until done

And for dessert…Alien Egg Cake Balls!


Video Games:
Several Alien video games exist, however I’d highly recommend Alien Isolation, which came out in 2014. My husband and I started playing together (it’s single player, so we take turns) and it’s a blast! Definitely both screamed at the first alien encounter.

Tabletop Games:
For board games, I recommend Legendary Encounters. It’s an Alien themed deck building game. This was my first deck building game and I found it surprisingly engaging and not too difficult to learn. There are scenarios for each of the four movies you can play, which makes for a lot of fun.

Test each other’s Alien knowledge with some Alien trivia.
Ever wonder what happened to Jones the Cat?
