Pizza is a dish that combines many healthy ingredients in one powerful food. Although it is primarily known as an indulgent food item, many people scoff at the health benefits. It is still important to not over eat pizza because of the high amounts of calories and saturated fats that could disrupt healthy biological function.
The main ingredient used here is butternut squash. The fruit is an excellent source of vitamin E, niacin, thiamin B6, folate and manganese. This helps in the formation of connective tissue, strengthening of bones and preventing harmful blood clots. Butternut squash can be used to help in weight loss.
How to make Butternut squash pizzas with rosemary
For preparing the dough:
Roll balls of dough onto floured surfaces. Their ideal size should reach about 8 inches. Place these balls on a baking sheet and drizzle cornmeal over them. Here is the important part: distribute the squash mixture you just prepared over and bake for 10 minutes. Do check occasionally to see if the crust is firm enough to pull out. Toss with cheese and olive oil. Cut into bite sized quarters for serving
