Pumpkin Pizza with Crispy Sage

by Two Peas on November 16, 2012

When we were at my dad’s house in Illinois, we made homemade pizza for dinner one night. Josh and my dad made a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza and I made Pumpkin Pizza with Crispy Sage. My dad and Josh are similar in many ways, including the way they like their pizza. They prefer pizza with lots of meat and lots of cheese. So when they saw me put pumpkin on my pizza they both started making jokes. I didn’t let them get me down. I crafted my pumpkin pizza with pride. I knew it was going to be delicious.

  • For the pizza dough:
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
