Crust

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the butter sugar and butter together until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla; mix until well blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, and baking powder. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and blend together on low speed. Remove and shape into a smooth ball.

Place the dough on a pizza pan, pizza baking stone or cookie sheet and pat out gently to the edges.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until the crust is golden brown on the edges. Let cool before topping.

Tip: (To save time, you could also try using a refrigerated sugar cookie dough.)

Cheese Layer

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 12 oz. package of whipped topping, reserving some for the topping

Place cream cheese in microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds (out of the wrapper of course!). Add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla to the cream cheese and mix well.

Fold in about 2/3 of the whipped topping. Refrigerate until ready to assemble pizza.

Pumpkin Layer

  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 2 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar
