Butternut Squash Pizza

PIzza without tomato sauce! I found this great recipe for Butternut Squash Pizza Sauce. I have not eaten tomatoes all summer. It was a bummer. Fall is here, and it's time for squash. I came across this recipe on and modified it a bit

Ingredients for the Sauce

  1. Peel and cut squash into small cubes. place in a pot with garlic cloves, cover withwater or veg broth.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer until squash is extremely tender. drain liquid (reserve about ¼ to ½ cup.) **I used a pressure cooker for this step. Same ingredients, less broth, you don't cover the squash with liquid when you use a pressure cooker.**
  3. Process squash in food processor / hand blender while adding a little bit of the liquid. Note: don't be too generous with the liquid. if your sauce is too runny, you will end up with a soggy pizza.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste
  5. Add chopped herbs. Options: basil, sage, thyme, parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary. This is an important step. It will be the foundation of your pizza. It will determine what kind of cheese goes best. What type of wine to pair with it. What toppings will go on.ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!!!!!!!!

  1. Note: this recipe has no onions. The veggie stock is my veggie stock with now onions. NOW, I can have onions so regular veggie stock is fine now.
