Butternut Squash Pizza


This recipe was really easy especially since I planned ahead and made my pizza dough early! You could always buy the canned pizza dough but fresh is best! 

I actually really enjoyed eating this pizza! I felt like I went to CPK, ordered a specialty pizza and brought it home! The flavors were natural and herby and without any actual pizza sauce all the flavors really went together well!


4 individual sized homemade pizza dough or 1 store bought can
1/2 thinly sliced red or sweet onion
1/2 butternut squash - peeled, seeds removed and sliced thin
2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dry
green onions, as many as you like
salt and black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
cornmeal, as needed


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Place sliced onion and squash in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with rosemary, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and toss to coat.
(If using dry rosemary I suggest dehydrating the herbs for a few hours in the oil prior to baking)

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until onions are lightly browned and squash is tender set aside.

Change the oven temp to bake your dough according to the directions.

On a floured surface, roll each ball of dough into an 8 - 10 inch round. Place the rounds on a baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal.

Distribute squash/onion mixture over the rounds and sprinkle with green onions. Bake for 10 minutes, checking occasionally, or until the crust is firm.

Drizzle remaining olive oil onto the pizza and serve.

Serve with a fresh salad and enjoy!
