Delicious Pizza Flavored Pumpkin Seeds

Of course, one of the best parts of carving a pumpkin is roasting the seeds!  As you all know, Brent and I put our creativity to the test in a pumpkin carving showdown.  We were both winners with this pumpkin seed recipe I whipped up!


First I pre-heated the oven to 300 degrees.  While it was heating up I rinsed the seeds in the sink and dried them off a bit in my hands.  Don’t use a paper towel to dry them…they’ll stick!!

Then, I placed them in a single layer on a baking sheet, and baked them for 30 minutes.

After that, I took them out and tossed them with olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, and oregano.  Then, I popped those suckers back in the oven and let them roast for another 20 minutes.


Wha-laaaaaaa.  You’re all done!  Upon first bite Brent said they tasted like Pizza…hence the title of this post.  He’s right, they do taste like pizza, with a lot less calories 🙂

Are you roasting pumpkin seeds this fall?  I’d love to hear how you do it!  Please share in the comments below!
