Pumpkin Pizza Recipe

November 10, 2009

Glad you liked the pizzas! :)

Here is the basic recipe:


Make or pickup a good pizza dough (we used the bagged one at trader joes). Remove the dough from the bag, roll into a ball, and leave out so the yeast in the dough can expand; about an hour. While the dough is rising, we turn our oven up to a high temperature; around 500-600 for an hour before we bake the pizzas, that way the oven is hot when the pizza goes in. If you are using a pizza stone, leave it in while the oven heats up. (We've found we get a better crust this way).

Creating the pizza: spread canned pumpkin puree on the dough (this will act as the sauce). Layer proscuitto on top and drizzle with honey. Bake at 500 degrees for about 3 minutes. Remove pizza and layer mozarella cheese and dandelion greens evenly. Top off with parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Bake at 500 degrees for another 5 minutes. Top with basil, crispy proscuitto, and cracked black pepper.

Thanks again!

PS- we definitely want to be in on the spring CSA! :)

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Safety Training last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.
