Recipes: Butternut squash pizza recipe

Thursday, November 1, 2012

Thought I would share a recipe for butternut squash that we ate recently. I could have eaten the whole pizza! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it...

Based on this recipe from The Endless Meal.

Butternut Squash Pizza

1 pre-baked 9 inch pizza crust
1 butternut squash, peeled, gutted and chopped (1/2 inch cubes)
1/2 large onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic
3 T butter
2 T flour
1 C milk
5ish oz cooked sausage (We use 1/3 of a package of Jimmy Dean)
salt and pepper
olive oil
1/2 C mozzarella

*Vegetarian option:
substitute 1 can black beans drained and rinsed for the sausage
1/8 C brown sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Toss butternut squash with a splash of olive oil and salt and pepper. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place butternut squash on top. Bake for 10 minutes and then check them. They should be fork tender when done. May take about 30 minutes total.
  3. Saute the onion and a splash of olive oil until tender. 
  4. Then cook the sausage until crumbled and no longer pink. 
  5. If you are going all veggie, cook the beans with the brown sugar on medium heat until cooked through.
  6. Sauce: Melt the butter in saucepan. As is melts, slowly sprinkle in the flour and whisk as you go. Keep whisking as you add the milk. Press the garlic and add to the sauce. Keep whisking until it thickens. 
  7. When the sauce is done, spread it over the crust. Spread the squash, onions, sausage (or beans) over the sauce. Top with mozzarella.
  8. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes depending on how brown you like the crust.
  9. Enjoy!
Note: We have eaten it with the meat and vegetarian and both were delicious!
