A gluten-free pizza made with a butternut squash crust. A pizza crust doesn’t have to be made only with grains. In today’s world, a healthy approach to making pizza is adding vegetables to the crust. In this recipe, I used butternut squash, adding valuable nutrients and fibre.

How to make butternut squash pizza crust?

First, let me start with making the crust – super easy! You bake the squash until tender. Then, you scoop out the flesh and mix with the remaining crust ingredients. The squash mixture is easily spread onto the pizza pan lined with parchment paper.

The crust is partially baked first, and then you add your favourite toppings. Super easy, no kneading or waiting for the dough to rise. The squash adds flavour, makes the pizza more nutritious, and the pizza dough is super easy to use. Nothing like it!

My favourite toppings are spicy Italian Sausage, fresh tomatoes, onions, bell pepper, and cheddar cheese, all of which compliment this most delicious butternut squash pizza crust.

The best part, the squash pizza crust, can hold plenty of topping without making the crust soggy. So feel free to choose your favourites. For more pizza recipe ideas, check out these gluten-free pizza crust recipes.
