Sandra Lee's Halloween Treats

Unroll pizza dough and cut into 2- x 3 1/2-inch rectangles. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of marinara sauce down the center of each rectangle of pizza dough. Place cooled sausages on top of sauce and close dough around sausages. Place seam-side down on prepared baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg and attach almond "fingernail" to one end of each finger. Sprinkle Parmesan "knuckle hair" in the center of each finger and spoon a small amount (1/2 teaspoon) marinara over the "stump end". Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, stir basil into remaining marinara and heat in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Transfer fingers to a serving platter and serve with marinara on the side for dipping.
