Pureed squash and sweet potatoes are some of the handiest ingredients to have around your kitchen in the fall and winter months. The puree is great in mac and cheese, like this butternut squash version or this sweet potato version. Purees squash can serve as a great filling for enchiladas or even use as an enchilada sauce. And, as in this butternut squash pizza, the puree serves in place of the more traditional tomato sauce.
How to make Butternut Squash Pizza Recipe
Variations for the Butternut Squash Pizza
Butternut squash and blue cheese is a winning combination in my book but I know that it’s definitely not for everyone. This butternut squash pizza recipe can be made a few different ways including:
- Squash: In terms of squash, butternut works the best as acorn or spaghetti tends me not be as creamy when pureed. However, sweet potatoes or even pumpkin puree would work.
- Cheese: Blue cheese can be a bit strong and instead I’ll use goat cheese, smoked mozzarella, or even gouda.
- Greens: Since the butternut squash is the base, try adding more vegetables or greens to the top before adding the cheese. Spinach is my top choice for adding to this pizza.
