Butternut Squash Pizza {Allergy Friendly and SO yummy!}


I’m currently doing the “Butter Churn Dance” for this “Butternut Squash Pizza”!!! On my GF journey this year, I have had quite a few GF pizzas but I have to say….this is up there with one of my FAVORITES. The most awesome thing about it? You don’t have to “make” a crazy concoction of different flours- you just cut a veggie and roast it! Now, that’s what I call “Comfy”. The aglio e olio sauce gives the “crust” a delicious flavor. Mmmmm….boy, was I pleasantly surprised by this one.

* I got this idea from my friend Andy who posted it to FB- this is where he got it: Empowered Sustenance- her version is a bit healthier if you want to take a gander!
Start by preheating your oven to 400. Lay out parchment paper on a large cookie sheet. Then, peel your Butternut Squash. I recommend finding a squash that has a long “stem” because that will serve as your mini pizza crusts.

Slice 1/4 of an inch slices. Resist the urge to make them thicker….it will be mooshy. Thiner slices will give you a nice crispy crust.

Make the aglio e olio by placing in a bowl 1/2 stick of butter, 1 Tbsp of olive oil, 2 cloves of freshly minced garlic, 1/2 tsp of oregano and 1/2 tsp of salt. Microwave for 1 min.

It’s already smelling goooooood!!!!

Spoon a little of the aglio e oilio on each mini pizza crust.

Roast in your 400 oven for 20 mins on one side- flip- then another 20 mins. So, 40 mins total or until nicely browned.

Get your toppings ready! Here I have freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, olives, pizza sauce, pepperoni and parmesan cheese.

Add your toppings as desired and bake for another 4-5 mins until cheese is melted. I am SO pleased with this recipe!!! For all my GF friends out there- this is a must make!
