Even my husband liked this pizza, and he's not really a squash fan. I loved it. I think it would be great as an appetizer for parties. Just cut into small squares. Very yummy! And I'm not just saying that because I'm the cook.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH PIZZA
1 butternut squash, steamed until soft and sliced or diced
1 white or red onion, thinly sliced
4 T. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. fresh or 1 t. dried rosemary
2 T. fresh or 1 t. dried thyme
Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
Your favorite pizza crust
Vegan cheese, optional
Crushed red pepper, optional
Place thinly sliced onion in a fry pan with 2 T. olive oil. Cook slowly over medium-low to low heat about 10-15 minutes until onions are caramelized and only slightly browned.
Placed rosemary, thyme and minced garlic in remaining 2 T. olive oil. Brush about 1/2 mixture over pizza crust. Top with squash and hot onions. If adding vegan cheese and/or crushed red pepper, do that now. Drizzle remaining olive oil on top and cook pizza according to crust directions.
(I used a pre-made, whole-wheat crust. I also used a little Daiya vegan cheese. I microwaved the squash early in the day so it was ready to use when needed. Next time I will roast the squash for a little better flavor. Onions could be made ahead of time as well.)
