5 ingredient pumpkin and gouda pizza with caramelized onions and garlic makes for the ultimate fall pizza. A base of creamy pumpkin set off by gooey gouda cheese and loads of aromatics, this cozy fall pie is worth ditching takeout for.
Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 16 oz. fresh pizza dough*
  • ¾ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 5 oz. freshly grated gouda cheese (about 1¼ cups)
  • Optional: fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley, crushed red pepper flakes
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 30 minutes. Add garlic and salt; cook 5 minutes.
  2. Place a pizza stone or baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 450°F. (Do not remove pizza stone while oven preheats.)
  3. Roll out dough on a large piece of parchment paper; pierce well with a fork. Spread pumpkin puree evenly over dough, leaving about ½ inch at border. Scatter onion and garlic mixture evenly over pumpkin; sprinkle cheese evenly overtop.
  4. Place dough (on paper) on preheated stone; bake at 450°F for 12 to 13 minutes, or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted. If desired, garnish with fresh chopped parsley and crushed red pepper flakes.
Notes
I tried this with multiple store-bought pizza doughs, and Whole Foods dough produced the best results.
