Anyone else feel as blue as I do when fall comes around? Something about the end of summer, school starting and the approach of winter gets we all kinds of melancholy every year.
This year I am going to try to battle the “fall blues” by trying to actually enjoy the season. I know, who would have thought???
Naturally, part of enjoying fall is eating all the pumpkin things. I wanted something that isn’t a baked good, and this pizza didn’t disappoint.
I used my favorite pizza dough recipe, and with a short ingredient list this pizza comes together in a snap. Don’t skip the pumpkin seeds on the top, they add the perfect crunch! I know the combo seems a bit different than the pizza you are used to , but trust me this was delicious!
If you are looking for another fun dinner idea using pumpkin try my Pumpkin and Chicken Sausage Pasta. YUM!
