Jack-O-Lantern Pizzas + CPK Family Cookbook Giveaway


Happy first day of October! And now that October has begun, bring on the Halloween stuff!

Aren't these Jack-O-Lantern pizzas absolutely adorable? This is just one of the fun recipes in the CPK Family Cookbook. (Yes, CPK has cookbooks!)

Just to let you in on a little secret, the Jack-O-Lantern pizza is really pumpkin pie on pizza crust! Yummy!

To kick off October, one lucky HC&B reader has the opportunity to win a CPK Family Cookbook. (I don't know about you, but my Ze Fronk recipe book from PlayhouseDisney.com is getting pretty old, and the idea of a cookbook with fun recipes for the kids and I to make together sounds very refreshing.)

So here's how to enter:
  • Post a comment here including your name and location (city/state)
  • Please post your comment by Friday, October 8th at 11:59 PST
  • Become a Follower of Houses, Couches and Babies to receive an additional entry (those that are already followers automatically receive an additional entry)
  • For a third entry, "like" Houses, Couches and Babies on Facebook (again, if you already like HC&B on Facebook, you will automatically receive the third entry)
The winner will be randomly selected shortly after October 8. Please check back to see if you have won, as the winner will not be contacted.

If you would like to just buy the CPK Family Cookbook, just visit your nearest CPK location. 100% of the proceeds from your purchase of the cookbook will go to children's charities nationwide.

Oh, and here's the wonderful Jack-Lantern Recipe:

Ingredients: Pizza dough, confectioners’ sugar, pumpkin pie filling, mini chocolate chips, chocolate kisses, whipped cream, candy corn.

Preparation:

1) Place the sugar in a fine-mesh strainer and sift a then, even layer of sugar over the dough. This will caramelize as the pizza bakes

2) Transfer the pizza to the oven and bake for 5 min to set the dough. Once the crust has been partially cooked, spread with a thin layer of pumpkin pie filling and return to the oven for another 5 -10 minutes, or until the filling is set. Remove and allow the pizza to cool

3) Decorate the pizzas using mini chocolate chips to represent the vertical lines, whipped cream for the eyes and mouth, chocolate kisses for the eyeballs, and the candy corn for the teeth.
