Hello, long lost friend. I have missed you dearly.
I seriously don’t know how I’ve gone this long without making a pizza. I think the last time I baked one was back in October with my Thai Peanut Pizza. Two months is way too long to be without a homemade pizza! And I’m glad it made its glorious return back into my life with this Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale Pizza w/ Red Thai Curry Sauce. You cannot go wrong with this scrumptious combination of ingredients.
Look at that beautiful golden crust! Go get the ingredients and make this ‘za right now!
Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale Pizza w/ Red Thai Curry Sauce
Makes one pizza
1 1/2 cups butternut squash, chopped and roasted
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 red onion, chopped
Kale, about two large handfuls, chopped
2 tbsp red thai curry sauce
A pre-made or homemade pizza crust of choice
To start making the pizza, begin by roasting the butternut squash. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and while waiting for it to heat, chop up the squash and season with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, the cinnamon, cloves and chili powder. When the oven is ready, place the squash on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast for about 25 minutes, or until tender. Stir the squash about halfway through so it doesn’t stick. Note: the squash could take a little longer to cook depending on the size of your chopped squash pieces.
While the squash it cooking, you can prepare the rest of the ingredients. Chop the red onion and kale, and grate the fresh mozzarella. Use as much or as little cheese as you like! When the squash is done,change the temperature on the oven to what the pizza crust requires if need be.
Start assembling the ‘za! On the crust, spread 1 tbsp of the olive oil and 2 tbsp of the red thai curry sauce almost all the way to the edge. Next put down a layer of chopped kale and onions. Then place the roasted squash on the pizza. And lastly sprinkle the mozzarella all over the top.
Place in the oven and bake for as long as the crust’s directions recommend. Enjoy!
Holiday parties are fun,
