TRIED 'N' TRUE: Try pumpkin pizza instead of pumpkin pie

At Morton, Ill., they have a Pumpkin Festival. It is a big deal and a lot of fun. There is also a pumpkin chuckin’ contest. There’s all sizes and shapes. Our dear friends, Bill and Eileen Knapp, live in Morton. Eileen always sends me a book of activities. Pumpkin is popular starting in October. This recipe is a new way to fix a pizza. It won first place in the junior division. Paiton Florey made this at the festival. I love making this. It’s different from pumpkin pie. Thanks, Paiton.

Pumpkin Pizza

Crust: 2 cups crushed ginger snap cookies

4 tablespoons butter (melted)
