    Pumpkin and Mushroom Flatbread Pizza

    October 28, 2014

    It’s fall again and I want all things pumpkin. Last year my pumpkin experiment was noodles- with a pumpkin base. Tonight I wanted to try a flat bread with pumpkin puree as the sauce. Boyfran was scared of a pumpkin sauce, but in the end- he decided it was good!


    • 1 handful chopped green Kale
    • 1/4 c lightly sauteed oyster mushrooms
    • 1 crispy fried shallot in brown butter
    • 1 diced Bartlett pear
    • Italian cheese blend
    • 4 Tbsp balsamic reduction, drizzled over flat bread after out of the oven


    • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
    • 4 cloves pressed garlic
    • 1 Tbsp tomato paste


    • Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough (Today I was feeling lazy. . . shortcuts aren’t always meal breaker!)

    Eat up buttercups! I’m off for left overs.
