Squash Pizza

Cook Time15 minutes
Total Time15 minutes


  • 1 acorn squash green, sliced very thin or diced small
  • 1/2 onion sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • Organic Grinders Garden Herb with Sea Salt
  • rainbow peppercorn
  • 1 pizza shell (or your favorite pizza dough recipe)
  • 1 jar pasta sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic roasted and minced
  • 1 jar fire-roasted red bell pepper
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
  • basil as needed


  • Fill a medium size sauce pot with water. Bring to a boil and add the squash. Boil for 2 or 3 minutes to partially cook the squash. Immediately shock the squash in ice water.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large sauté pan, add the onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook the onions until they achieve a caramel color. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Paint the pizza crust with the pasta sauce. Layer the pizza crust with the garlic, bell peppers, squash and onions. Sprinkle the cheese over the pizza. If you are using a pre-cooked pizza dough, bake until warmed through and the cheese is melted. If you are using a fresh dough, cook 15 – 20 minutes or until desired crispness.
  • When full heated/cooked, cut fresh basil into ribbons and sprinkle over the pizza.
