Pizzas are uber easy, AND fun to create! It's one of those great dishes where you can truly personalize the ingredients you choose to include in the final product. Here's a combination of ingredients that I find work very lovely together!
Preheat that oven to 300, baby
To prepare the squash, I like to soften them in a covered saucepan with a puddle of olive oil. Sprinkle some rosemary on the squash, we'll add more directly onto the pizza later on too!
I find it convenient to buy pizza crust for your foundation; if you want to make your own, there are some great recipes online and in cookbooks. It's simple to make your own, but out of convenience, I just bought already-prepared dough.
Dust some oregano across the surface before spreading a generous dollop of marinara sauce (I like Newman's) on the dough
And then chop the following for your pizza toppings:
- a bit of red onion
- about 1/6th of a yellow pepper
- several basil leaves
- 3 or so dates
- 3 mushrooms (optional)
- other colours of peppers (optional)
Place all those ingredients on the bed of marinara sauce, and add that softened squash.
Grate a nice layer of light Havarti cheese and throw some more rosemary on it! Crack some pepper onto it too.
Cook that sucker for 15-20 mins (or however crisp you like it)
Drizzle with some balsamic glaze (a quality, accessible brand is Blaze)
It's nice to have a side of Party-of-Flavours Salad! http://emilietarianism.blogspot.com/2011/03/party-of-flavors-salad.html
