Ingredients

For the crust (if from scratch):
  • 2 cups flour (whole wheat, bread or white)
  • 1/2 package whole wheat yeast
  • water
For the toppings:
  • 6 oz goat cheese
  • 1/2 acorn squash or butternut squash or pumpkin
  • 2 oz Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 tblĀ butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 tbl olive oil
  • 2 small onions (sweet preferred)

Recipe

For the crust: combine 1/2 cup 110 degree water with yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes so that it expands. Combine with 2 cups room temp water & the oil. Next, measure out 2 cups flour & combine with 1/2 tsp salt. Combine wet & dry ingredients to form a dough ball. Place in an oiled mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and set in a warm area to rise for at least 1 hour (until double in size)

For the toppings:

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cut up 1/2 acorn squash into small chunks & place on a baking pan. Place in oven until chunks are tender & easy to work with.

In the mean time, slice onions so that they're in rings & saute them in their own juicees until they are cooked & caramelized in their natural sugars. Set aside.

1. Once the squash is tender, place in a food processor & mix for about 1 minute. Add butter, milk, and salt & pepper (to taste) until you have a good consistency for sauce.

2. Once dough is finished rising, knead for about 7-8 minutes by hand. Spread dough out into desired shape on a baking pan.

3. Next, spread the squash sauce across the top of your pizza. Disperse onions & goat cheese (in chunks) across the top of your pizza. Sprinkle some salt & pepper, and then finally the Parmesan over the entire thing.

4. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 40-55 minutes (depending on your oven). Take it out & enjoy!
