Harvest Fruits Pizza


This vegetarian variety of pizza includes real apples, butternut squash puree, and onions—making it a cornucopia of fall flavors!

Servings: 8


Ingredients:

  • 1 small butternut squash (about 2 cups), peeled and cubed
  • ½ medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 12-ounce pizza dough ball
  • 1½ cups Colby-Monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • ⅓ cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • ½ medium apple, thinly sliced

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine butternut squash, onions, 1 tablespoon of oil, salt, and pepper on a baking sheet, and spread out mixture evenly. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until squash is soft, stirring once halfway through. Remove from oven.
  3. Increase heat to 450°F. Roll out pizza dough into a 12-inch circle, about ½ inch thick, on lightly floured parchment paper. Brush crust with remaining oil. Spread butternut squash mixture to within 1 inch of the edge. Top with cheeses and apple slices.
  4. Transfer pizza with parchment onto pizza stone or baking sheet; bake for 18-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling. Remove pizza from oven, and place on a cutting board. Cool slightly before cutting.
