15 min Prep, 25 min Cook
Butternut Squash Pizza makes the perfect entertaining appetizer during fall and winter months. See how easy it is to make this healthy recipe!
This particular recipe is dairy free, gluten free, and topped with mineral rich veggies. Instead of tomato sauce, we created a cheesy butternut squash sauce. Next goal is to figure out how to turn the sauce into a soup because it’s that damn good.
- For the butternut squash sauce:
- For the rest of the pizza :
Cook the cubed butternut squash according to package directions (if you are using raw cubed butternut squash, you can steam it in a pot of boiling water until the squash becomes tender).
Transfer the butternut squash into a food processor, add the 3 cloves of garlic, olive oil, and nutritional yeast, and blend until smooth. You can taste test the sauce and add any seasonings for preference (salt & pepper, or more nutritional yeast).
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and heat a skillet on medium heat. Add oil, cook the broccoli raab for 3-4 minutes and set aside. (this helps prep the broccoli raab to cook thoroughly once in the oven).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll out the dough in a circle. You may have to sprinkle almond flour (or any type of flour you have in your kitchen), on top of the dough so that it doesn’t stick to the roller or your hands.
Top your pizza with the butternut squash sauce, spread it around evenly, and add your toppings. Then transfer the pizza on the sheet to the oven an bake for between 15-18 minutes. Check the pizza after 15 minutes to make sure you don’t burn the crust.
Serve and enjoy!
Notes: You can also top your pizza with Parmesan cheese or vegan Parmesan cheese. You will also have leftover butternut squash sauce which you can use in additional recipes like mac n cheese or to top on a big bowl of veggies.
