Butternut Squash Pizza

This Butternut Squash Pizza is flavorful and healthy. The combination of butternut squash, caramelized onions, spinach, cheese, and basil is delish!

Butternut Squash Pizza
·GF Pizza Crust (Roll into pizza crust instead of folding over to make a calzone)
·¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
·3 cups of butternut squash, peeled and cut into small dices
·¼ cup prepared Crockpot Caramelized Onions, finely chopped
·1 cup of fresh spinach leaves, chopped
·1 cup of shredded pizza blend cheese
·2 tsp dried basil

Preheat oven and pizza stone to 400˚. Prepare pizza dough according to recipe. Place diced butternut squash into a microwave safe bowl with 2 teaspoons of water. Cover and steam on high for 3 minutes.

Carefully remove the hot pizza stone from the oven and sprinkle the pizza stone with corn meal. Place prepared pizza dough on the hot pizza stone. Brush 3 TBS of EVOO onto the pizza dough. Top with onions, spinach, cheese, and butternut squash. Brush the remaining 1 TBS of EVOO on the butternut squash pieces. Sprinkle with dried basil.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until dough is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Serves: 4-6
