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!
