When you think fall, pizza probably isn’t the first food to come to mind. But it’s a terrific vehicle for delicious autumnal produce. Although the panoply of fresh summer produce may be gone, fall brings it’s own robust, nourishing selection of pizza pie toppings. If the chill in the air has you wanting to turn out some heartier pizzas, look no further for inspiration. Yep, pizza at home can be quick and easy.
Although ricotta is a common element to fabulous pizza, butternut squash is typically left for soups and casseroles. Here is a little known fact: the flavors pair beautifully together. Add high quality olive oil, garlic, roasted red pepper flakes and fresh sage to enhance the fall flavors and you’ve got yourself a pizza that is comforting and incredibly different than anything you’ve ever tasted. The pizza has a rich, earthy flavor that warms and comforts during these chilly fall months. It’s the perfect dinner for a busy week night, and a lot more delicious than delivery.
