So I bought this gorgeous butternut squash at the farmers market, but I was really craving pizza tonight so it’s butternut pizza time! So it’s not a new idea, and I probably saw it somewhere and it hide out in the back of my mind until today, regardless this is my take on it. I have to say it is one tasty pie – sweet onions, rich squash with cheese on a pizza – yum! If you are not watching your weight, you can use more cheese and olive oil.
1 butternut squash, cubes into 1/2 inch pieces
2 sweet onions, thinly sliced
1 pizza dough, unbaked*
20 sage leaves
8 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced
Parm or Romano to sprinkle
Preheat oven to 425.
Spray a Pam with olive oil spray, add the squash then spray the squash, salt & pepper to taste then toss to combine. Cook for 30 – 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crispy on the outside.
Meanwhile in a medium saucepan, toss onions with 1 tsp olive oil and 1/4 cup water, put a lid on it and cook over low heat. Stir every 5 – 10 minutes adding more water 1/4 c at a time keeping the onions moist. It takes about 45 minutes to caramelize the onions.
Roll out the pizza dough. Spread onions over the dough. Top with cheese, sage leaves and squash.
Bake for 7 – 10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and brown.
4 servings (1/4 pizza).
9 WW PP per serving.
*I use 8 oz dough for a super thin crust.
