BUTTERNUT SQUASH & APPLE PIZZA WITH HERBED GOAT CHEESE & WALNUTS
Unconventional? Yes. Delicious as hell? Also yes. To those of you who don’t think apples belong on pizza… we present to you our Sunday best, a gorgeous pie that melds flavors ideal for fall and winter.
Cook Time: 45 MINUTES
Serves: 2 PEOPLE
- 1 Banza pizza crust
- 1 cup butternut squash, cut into ½ in pieces
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary and thyme, stems removed and roughly chopped
- ½ cup goat cheese
- ½ cup apple, very thinly sliced
- Small handful walnuts, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Add squash and toss with 2 tsp olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake until beginning to soften, 15-20 minutes. While the squash bakes, whisk together goat cheese, 2 tbsp water, and herbs in a small bowl until soft. Top pizza crust with herbed goat cheese, roasted squash, apple slices, and walnuts. Bake until crust is light golden, 10-15 minutes.
Cut your butternut squash into small pieces and they will cook faster. To make this vegan, we like to use Kite Hill almond milk ricotta.
