Prep time


Cooking time


Total time






  • Medium Butternut Squash

  • 1 Onion

  • 6-8 Bacon Slices

  • Craisins (Dried Cranberries)

  • Pizza Dough

  • 3 TBSP Maple Syrup

  • 1 1/2 TBSP Earth Balance Butter (Non Dairy)

  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  • Peel and cube butternut squash. Bring to a boil and cook until soft
  • Thinly slice the onion. Carmelize onions (about 10-12 min) stirring frequently
  • Cut the bacon. Cook until crispy
  • Roll out your pizza dough. We like to pre-cook the dough a little before we top it. We did
    this on a grill but you can also do it in the oven on a cookie shoot or a pizza stone.
  • Once the squash is done strain it and then you can either blend it in a blender or mash the squash. Add in the maple syrup, earth balance butter, salt, and pepper
  • Spread the squash out on the dough
  • Top with bacon, onions, and craisins
  • Bake in the oven at 350 for about 15 min


  • We like to flame grill the crust first as it gives a great char flavor to the crush and keeps it from getting soggy in the oven.
