Butternut Squash Pizza Crust
This delicious and easy recipe for Butternut Squash Pizza Crust is gluten free and is also Weight Watchers diet friendly.
Roast your cubed squash if not roasted already. Then use a masher to mash the squash. Skip this step if you are using canned squash instead. Preheat your oven to 350 and prep an over sized piece of Parchment Paper with a bit of nonstick spray. You can place the parchment on a pizza pan if you are wanting to bake your crust on a pan.
In a medium mixing bowl use a fork or whisk to mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Next, in a large mixing bowl, mix together the squash with the cheese. Then add the contents from the first bowl (flour etc) to the bowl as well as the beaten eggs.
Work the pizza dough into the prepared sheets of parchment paper. You should be able to make more than one average-sized crust. You can freeze or refrigerate the excess for later use. Bake the crust for about twenty minutes or until it begins to brown. Flip the crust over and continue to bake until the now top side begins to brown as well (about another twenty minutes).
Make this recipe gluten free by using gluten free flour instead of regular flour. Or, you can make this recipe low carb by using low carb Carbalose flour. Make this 'keto friendly' by using a keto friendly flour.
Please check the packaging to assure whether or not you will need a binder such as an additional egg.
As mentioned, you can roast and then cube/crush your own butternut squash. You can skip this process by using a canned version of butternut squash instead.
I also mentioned that finding butternut squash may be a challenge when it is not in season.
However, you can often find butternut squash in cans. Also, subbing in another similar squash may also work in this recipe (you may need to make a few tweaks).
