Roasted Butternut Squash Pizza
Updated December 12, 2019
medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into a small dice
teaspoon ground cinnamon
large sweet potato, cut into a small dice
small pinch cayenne pepper
bunch kale, finely chopped
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
cup shredded Manchego cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange the diced butternut squash on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Arrange the sweet potatoes on another baking sheet. Drizzle with a little bit of oil and sprinkle with cumin and cayenne. Throw a little salt on it, too. Bake both sheets for 30 minutes, or until soft and roasted.
Transfer the butternut squash to a food processor; add the milk and process until smooth.
Roll the pizza dough out onto a greased cookie sheet. (I flipped one of the pans over to use for the pizza.) Cut into 8 equal squares and parbake for 8 minutes.
Evenly spread the butternut squash puree over each pizza square. Top with sweet potatoes, kale and the shredded Manchego cheese.
Bake another 6 to 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately!
