Ahhh FALL! I’m loving it. Not because of the change in weather (MAN it’s rained every day for about 3 weeks now,) not because school has started (although that’s a perk,) but because winter squashes are everywhere!

I’ve roasted a couple of large butternut squashes for Little Bean’s baby food but it wasn’t until yesterday I decided to help myself.

This pizza was nothing short of amazing, in my opinion of course. I’ll be making another one today for lunch. It takes just a few minutes, it’s tasty, and it’s super light. That’s the trifecta of awesome food! Butternut Squash Pizza

  • 1 Flat Bread or Tortilla (I used Flat Out Original Light)
  • 1/4 cup mashed butternut squash (70g)
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1/8 cup (30g) Part Skim Ricotta
  • About 1/4 tsp Ground Sage
  • About 1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp (7g) Bacon Bits
  • 1 tbsp (4g) Pumpkin seeds or roasted Butternut Squash Seeds
  • Handful of baby spinach loosely chopped

Turn on the broiler.

Lay the flat bread or tortilla on a sheet of aluminum foil and place under the broiler for about 1 minute a side until crisp.

Smear the butternut squash on the flat bread and sprinkle with Kosher salt.

    What an awesome idea! I am going to try this! I’m the only one in my house that will eat any kind of squash and this will make great use of the left overs!! You can make a sweet or savory pizza or both. I’m to excited right now!! I need to pick up some flat breads! Thanks for the idea!

    I had this yesterday and it was terrific! My edges of the flatbread got a little too toasty though. Not sure what to do about that…maybe brush on some olive oil before the last 4 minutes under the broiler?

    When I made it a second time I made sure the squash was right to the edge. Made it a little messier to eat but prevented the extra dark edge! :)

    I have 1/2 of a cooked butternut squash in the frige right now. My DH said I would never cook it, so I had to prove him wrong. I think this will be a great dish to use up the other half.
