Description

A creation of my own out of the abundance of pumpkins I acquired after my neighbors found out I like to make my own pumpkin puree. I recommend using the Pizza Crust I recipe from Allrecipes.com for the crust. If you use canned pumpkin, make sure it is unsalted, unsweetened. I also prefer using dark meat chicken as it does not dry out in second cooking. Serve with wheat ale or light IPA beer.

Ingredients
  • 1 pizza crust dough
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, or as needed
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spread pizza dough onto a pizza stone or baking sheet.
  2. 2. Bake in the preheated oven until just baked enough to hold together, about 8 minutes.
  3. 3. Mix chicken, pumpkin, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Coat pizza crust with olive oil and add chicken mixture in 1 even layer. Top pizza with mozzarella cheese.
  4. 4. Bake in the oven until crust is browned and cheese is melted, 9 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
