The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently put together a recipe for a vegetarian pizza made from flavorful fall ingredients. As summer tuns into fall, many people have traded fresh berries for hearty gourds. This recipe provides an unexpected way to use seasonal ingredients.
The recipe involves making a delicious pizza sauce out of fresh butternut squash. Unlike tomato-based sauces, this spread is on the sweet side. To accompany the sweet base, the pizza is topped with a flavorful mix of chickpeas, onions and broccolini. These toppings add texture, as well as a healthy dose of protein and fiber. Not only is the dish delicious, but it is also dairy-free and vegan-friendly. A gluten-free crust can also be used for those who do not consume wheat.
