Fall for Pizza – Bacon, Butternut Squash and Kale Pizza

Butternut Bacon Pizza

I was finally able to overcome the strong urge to make my favorite pizza for the hundredth time (Grilled Chicken, Tomato and Pesto) and came up with a new delicious pizza and I’m so glad I did.  This pizza combines my favorite flavors of fall … Butternut Squash and fresh Sage along with super healthy Kale.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite home-made pizza dough
  • 1 small butternut squash,. cut into cubes
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped kale
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 6 oz. Ricotta cheese
  • 6 oz. mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Sage Chopped

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Peel and cut butternut squash into cubes (approximately 1-1/2 cups)

Cook bacon in pan until crisp and drain all but 2 tablespoons of drippings.  Break bacon into bite size pieces and set aside.

Cook squash in bacon drippings until tender, approximately 15 minutes.  Add Kale and saute 2 minutes.

Shape pizza dough and cover bottom with ricotta cheese then mozzarella cheese.  Add butternut squash, bacon, kale and sage.

Bake approximately 22 minutes or until crust in beginning to brown.

    • If you like butternut squash and kale (and who doesn’t love bacon?) I think you’d enjoy this pizza. I still am happy to have a lot of Kale in the garden. I have two different varieties I’m currently using them for my green smoothies in the morning.
