    Take a couple of cups of warm water in a medium bowl and add the rapid rise yeast. Using rapid rise yeast saves plenty of time. If you try to prepare this pizza with the normal yeast, it will take 2-3 hours to rise. As a result, you will waste a lot of time in preparing dough only.

    After mixing the yeast well in the water, add the sugar and salt. Leave the material for at least five minutes, before mixing the flour. You need to add the flour slowly, so that it does not turn into small balls.

    After mixing the ingredients, keep kneading until smooth. Your dough must be as smooth as possible. Having turned into a smooth material, place it at a warm place until doubled. It will take about 30-40 minutes. You may cover the dough with a light towel.

    Once the material is doubled, you need to start shaping individual dough balls. After making a few pumpkin-shaped pizzas, spread them on a large pizza tray. Make sure the size of the pizzas is not large, because you are making these for the kids. One can also use a separate tray for each mini pizza.

    It is the time to spread sauce on each pizza with a spoon. After spreading sauce, sprinkle shredded mozzarella and shredded cheddar one by one. Cover the face with the cheddar cheese to make it look orange, just like a pumpkin.
