  • 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


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


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