i found this on a cooking channel and she made it look so easy that I had to try it not being a pizza sauce fan this was perfect for me and will be using it on thanksgiving. You can use Boboli pizza crust instead of raw but cook crust for about 8min first then add ingredients. Use a very sharp knife on the squash as it can be tough to cut.

I wasn't sure about the combination of ingredients but the pizza was delicious. I used pizza dough for thin crust pizza Pizza Dough for Thin Crust Pizza, butternut squash and spinach. DH didn't think he was going to like it but said it was delicious.
What a fun pizza! I saw Giada make this on TV and had to try it for myself. I omitted the red pepper, added craisins and topped off the arugula with aged balsamic. Love it! This would make a great appetizer and is definitely restaurant quality!
