Pizza with Delicata Squash, Caramelized Onions, and Gorgonzola


1 pizza crust (or whole wheat focaccia)
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 medium delicata squash (or dumpling squash)
4 yellow onions, sliced thin
1 small package of gorgonzola cheese

  1. Place sliced onions in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and let simmer for 30 minutes. Onions should be soft and transparent.
  2. Hollow out a delicata squash, remove seeds, and slice into thin slices (1/4 inch) so that they look like flowers.
  3. Arrange on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Roast in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes, or until the squash begins to caramelize and become brown.
  5. Meanwhile, spread the pizza dough into a half-sheet pan or a round pizza pan. Drizzle with olive oil and salt.
  6. Scatter with caramelized onions and arrange delicata squash. Place a dollop of Gorgonzola cheese into the center of each squash “flower.”
  7. Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes or until the underside of the pizza crust is a light brown color.
  8. Serve warm.
To add variety to the pizza, roast the squash with sage, use Parmesan cheese instead of Gorgonzola, and experiment with different squash.
