Pumpkin Pizzas



Zoulah welcomes you to Red Couch Recipes and to her Second Annual Halloween Bash -- where she loves to cook and bake up a storm in the kitchen during Halloween.  Just so you know, Zoulah is into fun family Halloween -- none of that scary stuff, she's a family witch.  As we were making homemade pizza, as we are wont to do in the Red Couch Home, Zoulah cackled with delight when she started forming pizza dough into little pumpkins.  She always likes to put her own Halloween spin on things.

Zoulah says that you should cut out your pizza dough into circles of your desired size.  Then form the dough into pumpkin shapes.  As Zoulah says, making pumpkin shapes from pizza dough is a natural, because after cutting the dough into circles, the dough likes to recede into pumpkin shapes.


Decorate your pumpkin as you like with pepperoni or any other toppings. Anyone care for an alien pumpkin?  This little alien can't wait to be baked.


Zoulah finds this a perfect way to spend some fun family time during Halloween.  She says "Let the little ones design their own pumpkin faces."


Zoulah thanks you from the bottom of her witchie hat to the bottom of her witchie toes for visiting Red Couch Recipes today.

Hi Joni - when I first read the title "pumpkin pizza", I thought ick... but then I realized they weren't pumpkin flavored pizzas, they looked like cute little pumpkins. SOOOOOO CUTE!!! What a great idea.

Zoulah's back! I loved this series last year. It's when I first discovered you. Didn't you make a book out of them?

I love the pumpkins. That's adorable.
I'm really looking forward to your table, now.

Oh, no, Beulah is going to be so jealous that she is still stuck in her box!!! I better not let her see your blog when she flies up out of the basement. She is such a crazy sister.

I was also glad to see there was no pumpkin in the actual pizza. Fun shaped pizzas. Enjoy.
