Cut off a small piece of dough to use for a stem and set aside.
Shape remaining dough into a round ball. With a knife, cut the ball from top to bottom (1/2 inch deep) 6 times to imitate pumpkin sections. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke a deep hole into the top of the bowl down to the base.
Shape the cut off piece into a cone and insert the small end into the hole.
Place on a sprayed baking sheet and brush with egg. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double.
Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 20-30 minutes. Let cool, then cut off the top. Hollow out the pumpkin and fill with your favorite stew, dip, chili or soup. For 2 smaller pumpkin bowls, cut loaf in half widthwise and follow instructions above.
