Line a 12-inch pizza pan or 3 baking sheets with foil. With lightly floured hands, pat the cookie dough into prepared pizza pan. If using baking sheets, divide dough into thirds and pat each third into a 7-inch circle onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes for pizza pan or 8 to 10 minutes for smaller circles of dough, or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Spread vanilla pudding over baked cookie. Sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Cover and chill.
Meanwhile, decorate cookie tombstones. Press cookies into pudding layer of pizza. If necessary, support back of cookies with some of the candies. Decorate "graveyard" with candies. Create peering eyes with candy-coated chocolate peanuts; make shoes, feet, and hands with gumdrops; and arrange jelly worms. Cover and chill up to 4 hours before serving. Makes 16 to 20 servings.
