  • 2 balls of Kodiak Cakes Protein Pizza Dough, rolled out
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1-1/2 cup fresh mozzarella, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons roasted pepitas


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, and thyme. Stir to combine.
  2. Using a rubber spatula, divide the pumpkin mixture between the two rolled out pizza doughs, spreading an even layer to the edges, leaving ½” border. Don’t feel the need to use all of the mixture, you want the layer to be somewhat thin.
  3. Divide the shredded mozzarella cheese between the two pizzas, scattering evenly over the pumpkin ricotta layer. Top with roasted pepitas and extra chopped thyme.
  4. Cook in the Ooni pizza oven for 60 seconds, until lightly browned and crisp. Slice and serve hot.
*Note: Cook time varies depending on the oven. If cooking in a traditional oven, we recommended baking your pizza on a pizza pan or stone at 450° F for 8-10 minutes.
