Dairy-Free Pizza with Hummus and Roasted Butternut Squash

Ingredients

Method

  1. Put a baking stone or a heavy cookie sheet, rim side down, on the bottom rack of your oven. Move the other racks to the top or take them out of the oven so you have room to work. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut butternut squash in half where the neck flares into the bulb. Save the bulb for another purpose. Peel neck of squash and cut into 1/4-inch cubes. Line a cooking sheet with parchment paper, put squash cubes on lined cookie sheet, and toss with olive oil. Spread into a single layer and roast until deep orange but not brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. Roll out pizza dough between two pieces of well-floured parchment paper. Spread with hummus and then with pizza sauce.

  4. Top with butternut squash and bake until pizza edges start to brown and sauce bubbles, about 14 minutes.

  5. Hummus and butternut-squash pizza is best served hot, but is also good the next day at room temperature for lunch. Refrigerate any extra for up to four days or freeze.
