Now, you can have your Halloween and eat it, too.
Jeremiah McMillian and his staff at Gallo Pizzeria, 164 Castroville Road, are cooking up custom pizzas in shapes like a skull and crossbones for customers. They’ll do most any shape you want, from Batman to a jack-o-lantern and everything in between.
“We’ve done a Ninja Turtles pizza, Transformers, Darth Vader, Minnie Mouse, hearts, a sun (as tribute to the show “Cosmos”), “Adventure Time,” and we’ve spelled out people’s names and ‘Congrats’/’Happy birthday’ on pizzas, as well,” McMillan says.
All you have to do is give them advance notice, from 24 to 48 hours, of what shape you had in mind and what ingredients you’d like on there. (Extra anchovies for me, please.)
Give Gallo a call at (210) 264-0077.

Something wicked is headed for the vineyard.
Kerrville Hills Winery, 3600 Fredericksburg Kerrville, is hosting a murder mystery dinner, “Evil Never Dies,” on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
In addition to the show, guests will be served a meal catered by Lovin’ Spoonful and two glasses of wine.
Guests are invited to dress as an 1890 Boston resident, in Halloween garb, or as they wish.
