Butternut Squash Pizza

Makes 2 medium pizzas INGREDIENTS: Butternut Squash Sauce (from Minimalist Baker):
  • 3 C. butternut squash, cubed
  • 3 garlic cloves, whole, skin removed
  • 2 T. neutral-flavored oil
  • Pinch sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 T. maple syrup
Pizza:
  • 1 box Enjoy Life Foods Pizza Crust Mix
  • 1 ½ C. broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 C. red onion, chopped
  • Pinch sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 t. dried oregano
  • 1 C. Butternut Squash Sauce (recipe above)
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F
  2. Roast the butternut squash and garlic gloves with 1 T olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper for 15-20 minutes or until squash is tender.
  3. Blend squash and garlic with remaining olive oil and maple syrup until smooth and spreadable. Set aside.
  4. Combine Pizza Crust Mix, oil and approximately 1 1/4 cups cold water (gradually) in a medium bowl until well blended and dough forms
  5. Once dough forms, use hands to knead into a smooth ball, about 1-2 minutes. Use more or less water to create desired dough consistency. Split into two balls, one for each crust.
  6.  For a thinner crust: roll out 1/2 of the dough base to approximately 1/8" or less with a rolling pin on a floured counter (tip: use our All-Purpose Flour) and then place on an oiled baking sheet.* Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and using a fork, make indentation holes throughout before baking 8-10 minutes. For a thicker, chewier crust: roll-out to approximately ¼”. Alternatively, press the dough directly into the pizza pan*, brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake the crust without any toppings for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and add the Butternut Squash Sauce and toppings on crust and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes
*For an even crispier crust, place the crust directly on the oven rack
