Butternut Squash Pizza

Butternut Squash Pizza

Serves 6

Yoga teacher and food blogger ( Candice Garrett came up with this recipe thanks to an abundance of butternut squash. “My family and I tried them in a host of recipes; the all-around favorite turned out to be pizza,” Garrett reports. “It seemed an unusual pairing and we were all delighted with the result.” She serves the pizza as an appetizer for company or as a main dish for family dinners.
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled, halved, and sliced ⅛-inch thick
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced (1½ cups)
  • 2 Tbs. Eden Selected Spanish extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 16-oz. pkg. refrigerated pizza dough
  • ½ cup fresh spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup shaved Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Toss together squash, onion, oil, and rosemary in bowl. Spread in large baking dish, and roast 30 minutes, or until tender.

3. Increase oven temperature to 450°F. Divide pizza dough into 2 pieces, and shape each piece into 8-inch round. Place dough rounds on baking sheet, and top with squash mixture. Bake 13 to 17 minutes, or until crust is crisp. Drizzle pizzas with oil, scatter 1/4 cup spinach over each, and garnish each with 2 Tbs. shaved Parmesan.

I think a lot of you don't realize the difference between Vegetarian and Vegan. Vegetarian do eat cheese, etc. Vegan are totally vegetable based no animal products at all. (noticed the comments about the cheese)

Trader Joe's sells vegetarian parmesan, but only grated. Sounds delicious, can't wait to make this!

I spread a soft goat cheese on the crust before adding the roasted veggies. And arugula instead of spinach (which was not in the shop). Yum!

Nice healthy pizza. Used baby kale, instead of spinach. Didn't use parmesan. Made an oat flour crust.

Grana padano cheese used surely as parmesan is not veggie friendly

Am confused to find recipe and comments mentioning using Parmesan cheese as surely it's not vegetarian.

I used a prepared brown rice pizza crust. I covered it with baby spinach and then the baked squash-sweet onion mix, and topped with fresh grated quality parmesan cheese. This was baked about 10 minutes. The combination is quite delicious. The squash gives the pizza a delicate sweet taste.

I had a similar pizza my first night in Hawaii and loved it. It was a great light meal after the long flight from the east coast.

Just made this and am literally eating as I'm typing. It's so delicious. Followed recipe exactly and it's awesome.

This recipe is absolutely delicious. My husband and I actually made it a few times and replaced the spinach with arugula and even added some goat cheese on top of it. Insanely good!

Jennifer Daure - 2013-11-02 03:52:49

can you serve this at room temperature? it looks delicious!

I'd like to add that this is kid friendly! My 16 month old loved it!

I just made this and it is delicious! My husband saw it and said it looks like something from California Pizza Kitchen and that it tasted very artisan. I made the following modifications: reduced onion to 1/4 purple onion and substituted provolone for parmesan.
