  • pizza dough for one 12 to 14 inch pizza
  • 1 cup roasted butternut squash cubed (more if you like)
  • 1 ounce feta* cheese more if you like
  • 2 cups sliced onions slow cooked to caramelize
  • 1/3 cup pesto prepared or homemade
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook onions and roast squash.
  2. Spread dough to 12 to 14 inch circle. I prefer a thin crust, but if you like thicker go with what you like.
  3. Spread pesto evenly over crust.
  4. Top with onions and squash.
  5. Crumble feta over top.
  6. Cook at 450 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes or until crust begins to brown around edges.
  7. Cool on a wire rack to prevent bottom from becoming soft. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

*Substitute monterrey jack, goat cheese or mozzarella for feta if you prefer.
