Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 pizza (12 slices)
  • ½ acorn squash, seeds removed
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese or gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 pre-made large pizza crust (I pre-baked a Trader Joe’s whole wheat crust)
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup arugula
  1. Roast the squash: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Thinly slice the acorn squash into half moon shapes. Place the squash in a bowl and add the maple syrup, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine. Place the squash pieces on a baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes until the squash is tender and the edges are crisp.
  2. Prepare the pizza: Layer the squash pieces over the pizza crust. Sprinkle the feta over the squash. Place in the oven to bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese softens and slightly melts.
  3. Make the balsamic drizzle: While the pizza is baking, add the balsamic vinegar to large saucepan. Bring the vinegar to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the vinegar has a syrupy texture.
  4. Add the finishing touches: Top the pizza with the arugula and a drizzle the balsamic reduction. Slice and eat.
