Have you had enough pumpkin already? I sure hope not, because if you’re like me that is never a possibility! So far this month we’ve had Pumkin Curry, Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup, and Pumpkin Nutella Poptarts. I’m super excited about sharing this recipe because of two things…pizza is one of Pauls and my favorite dinners and this recipe is so delicious and unique!
To start we have a delicious gluten free pizza crust that’s a perfect combo of soft and crispy. Next, our base is a savory pumpkin spread that sets the stage for all the other flavors. We top with mozzarella, prosciutto, Gouda, and sage. It’s a joining of salty, creamy, herby goodness!
Pizza is just the most perfect food! It’s quick and easy, and there’s endless possibilities for toppings and combos! We literally do some kind of pizza just about every week. This week, when I told Paul I wanted to experiment with a pumpkin based pizza, he looked at me funny, I will admit. But this recipe got the hubby approval with a 10/10!
So, sometimes we go out for pizza, but I admit a lot of times we just make it at home. It’s a lot easier than it sounds to make your own dough, and is customizable to exactly what you want. Not to mention it’s cheaper and you can chill on the couch, watch a movie, and be in your pajamas while digging in.
This dough is made with the simple ingredients of almond flour, eggs, olive oil, and baking soda. One thing I’ve noticed about baking gluten free items is that a lot of recipes call for multiple types of gluten free flours, which is expensive and calls for more planning. So, anytime I find a good recipe for gluten free baking with only one flour I am sure to save it! This recipe is a keeper, for this pizza and others!
