Makes one pizza


INGREDIENTS:

• 1 Italian Pizza Crust

• 3 tbsp pumpkin purée

• 1 oz shredded mozzarella

• 1 oz shredded gruyère cheese

• 2 tbsp cooked ground Italian sausage

• A few fried sage leaves (see notes below)

• Drizzle of olive oil, optional


OVEN PREPARATION:

1. Preheat the oven to 425º

2. If you want a crispier crust, while the oven is preheating, place the Pizza Crust with no toppings in for 5 minutes

3. Remove from the oven, and spread pumpkin purée in a thin layer on the crust (in place of pizza sauce)

4. Top with both cheeses & sausage

5. Put back in the oven and bake for 10 minutes at 425º

6. Remove, and top with the fried sage and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!


AIR FRYER PREPARATION:

1. Pre-bake the Pizza Crust with no toppings for 4 minutes at 350º

2. Remove from the air fryer, and spread pumpkin purée in a thin layer on the crust (in place of pizza sauce)

3. Top with both cheeses & sausage

4. Put back in the air fryer and bake for 5 minutes at 350º

5. Remove, and top with the fried sage and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!


For the fried sage leaves:

Heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add sage leaves in a single layer. They will crisp up quickly, so keep an eye out! Once they’ve reached your desired crispiness, remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel to dab excess oil. Sprinkle with Maldon salt to taste.
