  3. Drain pumpkin, reserving liquid.
  4. Mash pumpkin and puree in blender or food processor.
  5. Allow pumpkin puree and reserved liquid cool to lukewarm.

  12. Pour in yeast mixture.

  15. If it's too dry, add a little bit of the reserved liquid.
  16. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface.
  17. Knead until very smooth, silky and elastic (about 10 minutes).
