Easy Mini Pizzas – Squash Version (don’t be scared)
1 can biscuit dough (such as Pillsbury, make sure there are at least 10 biscuit in the can)
3 cups or so (depends how thick you want it) cooked and mashed squash (here in Hawaii I use Kobocha, but butternut will do just fine)
1 clove chopped garlic
1 TBL olive oil
1 cup or so shredded parmesan reggiano cheese
salt & pepper
Heat oven according to package directions on biscuits (usually 425). Place the biscuit dough about 1 inch apart in cookie sheets and press them until very thin and flat, about 1/4 inch thick. In a small bowl, combine squash, garlic and oil and mash together with a fork. Generously heap each pizza with the squash mixture. Top with cheese. Bake according to biscuit package specs (usually 8-10 minutes). That’s it! Serve with salad.
So squash pizza sounds weird, but trust me, it is so good! It has such a rich and comforting flavor. In the past I’ve also made squash pizzas with mushrooms, sage, and gorgonzola. Use whatever cheese sounds good to you, but probably avoid cheddar. Enjoy!
