  • 4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast

  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup warm water (120°F to 130°F)

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ cup shredded Fontina cheese (2 oz.)

  • 2 ounce thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into thin strips

  • ¼ cup roasted, salted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

  • ¼ teaspoon coarse kosher salt


  1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, and 1 1/2 tsp. salt. Add the warm water and pumpkin. Stir until flour mixture is moistened. (The dough will be sticky and soft.) Cover bowl with waxed paper; let rest at room temperature 2 hours.

  2. Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside. Gather dough with your hands. Place dough in the prepared pan. Using your fingers, gently spread dough evenly in pan (dough will be sticky). Coat a piece of plastic wrap with nonstick cooking spray; cover dough with plastic wrap, coated side down. Let rest at room temperature 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until puffy.

  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Uncover dough. Lightly brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with cheese, prosciutto, pumpkin seeds, rosemary, and coarse salt. Bake, uncovered, about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly in pan on a wire rack. Serve warm.
