Festively Fall Butternut Squash Pizza

Festively Fall Butternut Squash Pizza
The other night, my family and I enjoyed a butternut squash pizza from Whole Foods. We loved it so much that I thought it would be a great activity to get my kids involved in replicating the recipe. This is a fun and festive twist on a classic pizza dish!

4-6 servings

 Ingredients:

  • 1 package of whole wheat pizza dough (we get ours from the local Whole Foods bakery)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce (we used Cucina Antica’s la Pizza sauce)
  • 1 cup steamed butternut squash, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • Manchego cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano or 1 tsp dried (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F (or the recommended temperature of your store-bought pizza dough).
  2. Roll out dough onto a pizza stone or parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  3. Spread the sauce, add the squash, and grate the cheese until the pizza is covered. Add oregano or spices of choice.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until edges appear golden brown (or as long as your specific pizza dough calls for).
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Serve with a side salad or mixed vegetables.
