Saturday Night Dinner
Pumpkin, Fetta and Macadamia Pizza.
This combination was a hit at our house tonight.
The dough was prepared in a breadmaker. While it did its magic, I diced a quarter of a small pumpkin and baked it for about 20 minutes in a very hot oven with a sliced red onion and a drizzle of macadamia oil. I would have used olive oil if I'd had any in my kitchen.
To construct the pizzas I halved the dough and rolled out each half. For the children, I first added a little grated cheese (to hold the other toppings on), then the pumpkin mix, a little fresh thyme and lots more cheese.
The adult pizzza was a little more special, with a little grated cheese, followed by the pumpkin, coarsely chopped macadamia nuts, crumbled fetta cheese and fresh thyme.
This all went in the oven until the crust was cooked, and devoured with frightening rapidity.
I must never ever forget this combination ... it was soooo good!

Oh yum. This inspired me to run into where DH is to proclaim "We must make pumpkin pizza!"

Yum! Lately, when I've been in meetings at work, the caterers have provided us with, among other things, pumpkin and rocket sandwiches. They are fabulous! To me, pumpkin is always a hit except when it's pumpkin pie :)
