One of my favorite vegetables is butternut squash. And since my favorite food is pizza, it only makes sense that I love a good butternut squash pizza. In fact, I think that butternut squash is very underrepresented as a pizza topping. In can be a great substitute for a sauce… or simply add some extra flavor to other ingredients. I’ve tried making butternut squash pies in my home oven on multiple occasions and they’ve turned out great:
On separate occasions, I’ve combined it with both ricotta cheese and mozzarella cheese. I actually prefer it with mozzarella. Another key ingredient I use it a tad of sage butter (melt butter in a sauce pan and add a teaspoon of sage) which I lightly drizzle over the pie before it’s served. I make a delicious butternut squash ravioli with that sauce and wanted to maintain some of that flavor on my pizza.
But I recently came across a butternut squash recipe that is accompanied by photos that look even yummier than mine. Check back on Friday to see what that’s all about!
