Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F
Remove the crust from the refrigerator and place on a floured work surface. Roll the crust into a 13" round and transfer it to a 9-inch pie plate. Crimp the edges.
Combine the cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. On low speed, beat until the mixture is fairly smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla; spoon the filling into the pie crust.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the 3/4 cup sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. Add the pumpkin, evaporated milk and eggs, and whisk until smooth, but do not over mix.
Gently spoon the pumpkin filling atop the cheesecake layer.
Bake the pie for 15 minutes at 425 degrees F then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and cook for another 40 to 45 minutes more.
When done, remove pie from oven and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Refrigerate pie until ready to serve.
