Shaved Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Pizza with Goat Cheese

Pizza is never wrong. Especially when it's this good. This is a recipe from one of our upcoming menus. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 whole-wheat pizza bread
  • 4 oz peeled and shaved butternut squash (about 1/4 of an average size squash)
  • 3 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 oz dry-roasted unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Salad: Baby lettuce, tomato, corn and cucumber

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Thinly slice the onion.
  3. Peal and shave the butternut squash.
  4.  Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet on medium-low.
  5. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden, about 25 minutes. If onions begin to stick to skillet, occasionally add a splash of water.
  6. Place pizza bread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Scatter onions, squash, goat cheese and pumpkin seeds over top.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until crust is lightly browned and squash is wilted.
  8. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add vinegar and bring to a boil on high heat. Cook until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Set aside. Remove pizza from oven and immediately scatter with arugula. Drizzle with vinegar reduction, slice into 8 equal pieces and serve with the salad.
