Squash, Bacon and Cheese Pizza

We love topping our pizzas with all the delicious ingredients we can think of and always try new culinary combos. Because it's squash season now, we've used it as the main ingredient for this pizza, along with some fried bacon and a light touch of Cheddar and gorgonzola. Needless to say, the pizza turned out fabulous!

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.
