This butternut squash pizza with bacon, sage, caramelized onions, and balsamic drizzle is a pizza you'll wish was on every menu once you give it a try.

Ingredients

  • 2 balls of Kodiak Cakes Protein Pizza Dough, rolled out
  • 1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh mozzarella, shredded
  • 2 cups roasted butternut squash, cut into 1/2 cubes
  • 1/2 cup thick cut bacon, roughly chopped, slightly crisped
  • 1/2 cup caramelized onions
  • 10 fresh sage leaves, left whole
  • Store bought balsamic glaze

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt. Stir to combine.
  2. Using a rubber spatula, divide the cheese mixture between the two rolled out pizza doughs, spreading an even layer to the edges, leaving 1/2" border. Don't feel the need to use all of the mixture, you want the layer to be somewhat thin.
  3. Divide the shredded mozzarella cheese, butternut squash, bacon, and caramelized onions evenly over the two pizza doughs. Top with fresh sage leaves.
  4. Cook in the Ooni pizza oven for 60 seconds, until lightly browned and crisp.
  5. Drizzle each pizza with a generous amount of balsamic glaze. Slice and serve hot.

*Note: Cook time varies depending on the oven. If cooking in a traditional oven, we recommended baking your pizza on a pizza pan or stone at 450° F for 8-10 minutes.
