Autumn may mean different things depending on where you live in the US. But for many people, the season screams the arrival of Pumpkin & Pumpkin Spice stuff. Yes, in keeping with the theme of this blog that also includes Pumpkin Pizza!

What are Pumpkin Spice Products?

First, let’s look at the different places you can find this seasonal goodie. Check out this Top 10 usage list. Pumpkin and pumpkin spice are on/in more than your traditional Dunkin Donut pumpkin-flavored coffees and donuts.

Take note of #10. Pumpkin-flavored cheeses? I saw that and wondered if anyone had dared to go there. On pizza. Yes, they did.

Pumpkin Pizza Blog

I began by checking my Pinterest platform. (Yes, I have Pinterest pages for the various topics I write about. Feel free to check them out, thank you. Especially if you need content written for your website.).

I quickly found the Eat Move Make (no commas) website. It’s a fantastic website! The blogs are written by a lady named Liz Mays. She is a “North Carolina mom of two humans and six cats. I love to cook, bake, craft, and travel.”

I like her already.

The blog I zoomed in on is Savory Pumpkin Pizza Recipe. Please go to the link to read the entire blog. It includes ingredients, cooking instructions, comments, and tasty-looking pictures.

Now pay attention. This is the key thing to know about Pumpkin Pizza. When Liz told her family she was going to make one, they all responded like you probably did. Thumbs down.

Liz writes, “I think they envisioned a pumpkin pie pizza—which this is not. Remember, pumpkin has a very mild flavor. It doesn’t taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves on its own. And I’m not adding those spices to this pumpkin pizza recipe.

This is a savory pumpkin pizza and it’s INCREDIBLE.”

Pumpkin Pizza Recipe

Here are the ingredients. I am withholding the portions because I don’t want to steal her work. Check out her blog for specifics if after reading this blog you want to give it a try.

  • pizza crust of your choice (I highly recommend a refrigerated European-style thin-crust such as Wewalka. I buy it at Harris Teeter or Walmart.)
  • fresh pumpkin, peeled and chopped
  • red onion
  • olive oil
  • red sundried tomato pesto
  • roasted red peppers
  • provolone cheese
  • bacon, cooked crisp and chopped

Bacon? Roasted red peppers? Smells good from here.

Prep time is 20 minutes. Cook time is 35 minutes.

Liz closes by saying “The ingredients mingle beautifully and create the most delicious fall pizza you’ve ever had.”

Plus, she adds for the purists, “it’s super cheesy!”

Frankly, I don’t know if it tastes good or not. But if someone made it, I would try a slice. ‘Tis the season for Pumpkin.
