This Pumpkin Focaccia from Oven Love turned out just lovely. I was looking for something to have with baked spaghetti and this fit the bill! This is another pumpkin recipe that doesn't taste like pumpkin at all. The pumpkin's just there to keep the dough moist and to lend it some wonderful golden orange color.
The Focaccia is even great dipped straight into marinara.
