This week I made a delicious Roasted Squash Pizza. I got the idea for the recipe from the excellent Vegetarian Planet cookbook. I always have a hard time following a recipe exactly as written and this was no exception (although I did stay pretty close).
To make this delightful pizza you’ll need some butternut squash, some onion, fresh sage, olive oil, pizza crust (I used a Boboli thin crust), parmesan cheese, and asiago cheese. Slice the squash, onion and sage very thinly; toss them in the olive oil and roast them until they are soft and somewhat caramelized. Spread the squash mixture on to the pizza crust, sprinkle it with some grated cheese and bake in a very hot oven (I preheat mine to the hottest setting – 550 degrees and I use a pizza stone) until the cheese is melted, bubbly and a little brown. Slice and enjoy with a salad.
If you want the original recipe pick up Vegetarian Planet at your local bookstore – it’s chock full of great vegetarian recipes!
