Fall Harvest Pizza…3 Cheese Butternut Squash Pizza

I made this pizza about a month ago, so I apologize for the delay.  It was absolutely delicious & highly recommended. 

Ingredients: Organic pizza dough, red onion, apple, mozzarella, gorgonzola, cheddar, olive oil, garlic, butternut squash & spices.

You’ll need: a pizza stone or round baking sheet.

Cook time: 25 min (butternut squash) + 5 min (cool time)+ 10-15 min (pizza cook time) = 40-45 min


Slice butternut squash length-wise, rub a little butter and brown sugar, then place on a baking sheet in a 400 degree (F) oven for 25 minutes. 

While butternut squash is cooking, prep the rest of the ingredients:

Slice 1/4 of a red onion and saute in a hot pan with a little olive oil, until just about fully cooked (still slightly hard).

Grate 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.

Grate 1/4 cup cheddar cheese.

Chop up 1/2 an apple.

Remove butternut squash from oven & allow to cool for a little bit (put in fridge to speed up the cooling time).  Once cool enough to touch, chop up 1/2 into good sized chunks (remove skin).

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.

Roll out the dough on some flour & a little cornmeal, to about an 3/4 inch thick.  

Crush a clove of garlic in a couple tablespoons of olive oil with some basil (dried), oregano, salt & pepper.  

Brush the olive oil mixture over the entire crust.

Evenly spread the ingredients on the dough.

Place pizza in oven for 10-15 minutes, until dough a golden brown & cheese melted.
