  1. 1. Combine yeast, sugar and water in a bowl. Set aside in a warm place for 5 minutes until the surface has become bubbly.
  2. 2. Sift flour into a large bowl and add seasoning. Make a well in the centre, and pour in the yeast mixture and oil. Mix well, until dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured benchtop and knead until smooth and dough has become elastic. Place into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm area for approx. 1 hour, or until dough has doubled in size. Punch the dough to release excess gas, and knead on a floured benchtop until smooth. Cut dough into 15g pieces and form into balls. Roll each ball out to 0.5cm thickness and place onto a lined oven tray.
  3. 3. Toss pumpkin with oil and cumin seeds. Place onto a lined oven tray and bake at 200°C for 10 minutes or until golden and tender.
  4. 4. Combine cream cheese with olives and seasoning and spread evenly over pizzetta bases, leaving a 1cm border. Top with pumpkin slices and drizzle with extra olive oil. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes until bases are crisp and cooked, garnish each pizzetta with coriander leaves.
