The Great Pumpkin Pie

Fellini’s sweetens up dinner with its seasonal pizza

Posted

To make The Great Pumpkin Pie – that is, the pumpkin-style pizza that Fellini’s makes each year – you need all the flavors of fall: cinnamon, brown sugar, honey, and maple syrup. But unlike grandma’s version, this pumpkin pie also uses spinach, mozzarella, gruyère, chevre, bacon, caramelized onions, and hand-tossed dough. Then, of course, there’s the roasted and puréed pumpkin, which make the pizza what it is. Fellini’s has been making far-out pizzas since 1989, using ingredients that span the supermarket aisles. The Great Pumpkin Pie has become a harvest-time tradition, and you can grab your own anytime between Halloween and November. In theory you could make the thin-crust masterpiece in your own kitchen. All we can say is, good luck.
