Butternut Squash Pizza

You won't be making this pizza that often, but since it's autumn season and butternut squash is waiting for us at just about any corner, it would be a shame not to try it asap. Butternut squash is the main ingredient for the dough, being mixed with chickpea flour, flax seeds, and almond flour to obtain a nice and delicious crust. It is topped with pesto sauce, cherry tomatoes, radicchio, and arugula.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
