5 Pumpkin Pizza Recipes to Try

It’s almost October, and everyone is going crazy with pumpkin! You’ll find it in coffee creamer, candy, beer, cookies, chips, dog treats, ice cream…. You name the product and there’s probably a pumpkin version of it.

With all this pumpkin going on, why not give the masses what they want this October? Consider testing a pumpkin pizza as a special on one of your slow nights, or during the week prior to Halloween (you won’t need a special during the busy Halloween week).

Here are a few recipes for inspiration.
