Fall Harvest Veggie Pizza

This homemade pizza combines all the flavors of fall into one delicious, meat-free pizza.

Yield

8 servings

Ingredients

1 acorn squash, peeled, seeded and cubed
olive oil
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1 (13.8 ounce) can Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
1/2 tart apple (such as Granny Smith or McIntosh)
1 cup shredded white Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese (4 ounces)
1 large handful arugula, if desired

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). In shallow baking pan, toss squash cubes with small amount of oil. Roast about 45 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelized.

Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, heat small amount of oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook just until caramelized. Set aside.

Remove squash from oven; increase oven temperature to temperature called for on pizza crust can. With fork, coarsely mash squash; set aside.

On lightly floured pizza stone or cookie sheet, unroll pizza crust; press into 12-inch round. Bake 5 minutes. Meanwhile, core and thinly slice apple; set aside.

Top partially baked crust with mashed squash, 3/4 cup of the Cheddar cheese, the apple, onion, gorgonzola cheese and remaining Cheddar cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.

Top pizza with arugula or, if desired, arugula tossed with a splash of lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Estimated Time

Preparation Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 45 minutes

Additional Information

Roasted rutabaga or butternut squash works well in place of the acorn squash, if you can't find it at your local grocery store.

Not a fan of gorgonzola? Swap it out for crumbled blue or feta cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese.
