    a 12-inch round.

  4. Spread pumpkin puree around the pizza. Top with Fresh Mozzarella.

  5. Place the pizza in the oven and bake for about 7 minutes, rotating halfway through baking.

  6. Remove pizza from oven. Sprinkle with smoked walnuts and drizzle with Balsamic fig glaze. (Pizza can also be topped with 3 oz. sliced prosciutto if desired.)
