Butternut Squash Pizza:
1 butternut squash (1 lb.)
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic
pizza dough for 1 pizza
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
12 sprigs parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cut both ends of butternut squash, then slice in half lengthwise. Stand squash upright and cut away skin, then scoop out seeds. Slice into c share pieces. Brush slices with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and arrange in a single layer on baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes.
Saute olive oil and garlic. Place pizza stone in oven and turn heat to 450-500 degrees. Roll out pizza dough and paint with oil and garlic. Sprinkle cheese then place squash slices on pizza. Bake pizza for about ten minutes. Fry sage leaves and top pizza with them and the parsley. Squeeze half a lemon over pizza.
This is a pretty rich pizza, so for variation you may want to add tomato sauce and skip the herbs and lemon (if you are trying to entice children.) I am sure you all know what you like.
