Pumpkin & Spider Web Shaped Pizza


Friday night, we enjoyed Vegan Planet's idea for Pumpkin Face Baked Oatmeal. Tonight I continued to borrow her fun ideas with these pizzas. And I even got a, "You're the best Mom ever," out of it, so thanks, Robin.

I used this recipe for the crust and followed VP's "orange" idea of blending cream cheese with tomato sauce and cut olives for the facial features. I used my pumpkin cookie cutter to make "little pizzas."

I also made two larger (dough rolled out and cut into circles using my Kitchen Aid mixer bowl) pizzas. I piped a garbanzo bean/nutritional yeast cheeze sauce for the web and used her spider idea.

Heading back into the kitchen to start making some of Forks and Beans amazing-looking candy bars for tomorrow!

  6. Adorable, and tasty-looking too. How's the nooch/chickpea combo stack up compared to Daiya? I'm somewhat of a daiya loyalist these days when it comes to pizza.

  12. Thank you, everyone! I can't take credit for the idea, but we had fun implementing it. And I'm definitely not the best mom ever, unfortunately, but it's nice to hear from them once in awhile.

    Stacy, it was leftover Mmm Sauce from Peas and Thank You. I can't live without my Daiya, but we were out this particular night. And I figured it was easier to pipe the sauce than try to get grated Daiya in straight lines.
