A delicious gluten-free pizza that’s perfect for fall!

Makes 2 medium pizzas

Ingredients:
Butternut Squash Sauce (from Minimalist Baker):

  • 3 cup butternut squash, cubed
  • 3 garlic cloves, whole, skin removed
  • 2 tbsp neutral-flavored oil
  • Pinch sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Pizza:

  • 1 box Enjoy Life Foods Pizza Crust Mix
  • 1 ½ cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • Pinch sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 cup Butternut Squash Sauce (recipe above)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Roast the butternut squash and garlic gloves with 1 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper for 15–20 minutes or until squash is tender.
  3. Blend squash and garlic with remaining olive oil and maple syrup until smooth and spreadable. Set aside.
  4. Combine Pizza Crust Mix, oil and approximately 1 1/4 cups cold water (gradually) in a medium bowl until well-blended and dough forms.
  5. Once dough forms, use hands to knead into a smooth ball, about 1–2 minutes. Use more or less water to create desired dough consistency. Split into two balls, one for each crust.
  6. For a thinner crust: roll out 1/2 of the dough base to approximately 1/8″ or less with a rolling pin on a floured counter (tip: use our All-Purpose Flour) and then place on an oiled baking sheet. For an even crispier crust, place the crust directly on the oven rack. Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and using a fork, make indentation holes throughout before baking 8–10 minutes. For a thicker, chewier crust: roll-out to approximately ¼”. Alternatively, press the dough directly into the pizza pan, brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake the crust without any toppings for 10–12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and add the Butternut Squash Sauce and toppings on crust and bake for an additional 10–12 minutes.
