Butternut Squash Pizza Recipe

Butternut Squash Pizza

Every Autumn my mom makes an amazing butternut squash lasagna. I have wanted to use the key ingredients from her recipe for a pizza since the beginning of my pizza project, so when a butternut squash was included in our share from The Good Food Collective I jumped at the opportunity.

I diced the butternut squash, sprayed it with canola oil, added some salt and pepper, then roasted it in the oven until it softened a bit. For a base to the pizza, I blended ricotta cheese with pesto sauce, then spread that on the pre-baked dough. I added the squash and sauteed onions and then let it bake.

This pizza was a great idea; it was so delicious! The roasted squash had a sweet flavor that complimented the pesto cheese spread very well. My butternut squash pizza was a great kick-off to the fall pizza season!
