Ingredients
  • 1 (1- pound) acorn squash
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola
  • 1 cup arugula
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Slice the squash in half from top to bottom. Scoop out the seeds. Slice the squash into 1/2 to 3/4-inch wide half moons and place in a medium bowl. Toss the squash with the syrup, olive oil, red pepper flakes, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place the squash on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the squash until tender and golden, about 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Keep the temperature on the oven at 375 degrees F. Roll out the pizza dough on a flour dusted piece of parchment paper to a 13-inch diameter. Place the pizza and the parchment paper on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese and the Gorgonzola on the pizza dough. Bake in the oven until golden and cooked through, about 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Peel the skins off the squash. Top the cooked pizza with the cooked squash. Top with arugula and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Slice and serve.
