Kitchen Twine

Roll out Pizza dough into a large pizza sized circle.

Lay the twine down on a greased cookie sheet as shown. Carefully lay out the pizza dough on top of it.
Pile the marshmallows on top of the center of the dough and gather all the edges of the dough over the marshmallows and press the edges together to seal. 2 by 2, tie the twine over the top of the dough, criss-crossing on the last 2 tie the twine around a ball on the top of the dough edges at top.
Let rise for several hours till it gets big and puffy
Bake in a 350oF oven till its golden about 30 mins
The marshmallows will ooze out some.
Carefully remove the twine.
Mix some water and food color to make orange and with a pastry brush, paint the entire pumpkin, except the ball on top. paint that with green water.
pop it back into the oven to dry.

The marshmallows coat the inside with a gooey Pumpkin Spiced Glaze

Place in the middle of the dinner table while still hot and let the kids tear it to bits and eat.
If you dont have the Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows, just buy regular large marshmallows and toss with pumpkin spice
