Healthy Butternut Squash Pizza Recipe With Spinach and Fontina!
At first this recipe may not seem like the most healthy or delicious of all dishes.
However I urge you to try it!
Then I will urge you to put the 3rd slice down. And probably be needing to urge you to save that final slice for later!
The nutty, earthy taste of the squash is highlighted with sharp roasted tones. After a few minutes in the fiery hot oven our roasted squash begins to grill and caramelizes. This enhances the flavor even further.
So too does the onion, which has become even sweeter and stickier and is now blending with the tangy zesty Fontina cheese grill!
In just a few moments you have crispy wholemeal or whole wheat bread base, covered with melted cheese and golden caramelized onions.
All nestled amongst gorgeous green irony tangs of spinach and sizzling grilled butternut squash.
