Topping for pumpkin pizza
Now about the topping. You can skip the ham if you or your guests are vegetarian. Pumpkin, apple and kale is a perfect combination. Creamy pumpkin fills you, apples give some freshness, as well as kale – fresh, crunchy and simply beautiful. Ham and onion gives this pizza savory flavor, but if you skip it, you will have sweet pizza as a dessert! Many options to play with these ingredients!
Apples on top
I used apples Golden Delicious apples in this recipe, Granny Smith would be perfect too. The apples should taste sweet (but not overly sweet), juicy and keep shape, when cooking. I cooked apples skin on, because it is really thin, and becomes soft while cooking. And also, did you know all the vitamins are in the skin?
Pumpkin puree instead of tomato sauce
So as I wrote earlier, I cheated a little, and used pizza crust mix. But I used real pumpkin, which I sliced and baked in the oven until soft, and blended to puree. Of course you can use store-bought pumpkin puree (not spiced!). But I had this gorgeous “Musquee de Provence” pumpkin with deep orange color and fine sweet flavor that I wanted to use in this recipe.
