Vegan Butternut Squash Pizza- the perfect fall pizza!
I absolutely love butternut squash and I buy a few of them at the local farm stand every week. The prepping and cooking may be time-consuming, but it's definitely worth the trouble! The pre-packaged butternut squash in the grocery store never tastes as good. I cook a large butternut squash and save the leftovers for soups, mac and "cheese" and this Vegan Butternut Squash Pizza. I prepare my butternut squash by slicing it in half and coating it with olive oil, salt, and pepper. I cook it at 400 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until tender. Then I puree it in my Vitamix.
This Vegan Butternut Squash Pizza is easy to make and absolutely delicious! The pre-made crust really cuts down on the work. I like using a thin crust so the butternut squash and topping can really shine. I'm usually not of fan of vegan cheese, but these Mozzarella style shreds from Daiya did not disappoint. The texture felt a bit rubbery and odd out of the bag, but once I melted it on the pizza it was pretty close to the real thing!
The combination of the butternut squash, arugula, and balsamic glaze makes this pizza the perfect bite of fall!
