Butternut Squash Pizza with Onions, Mushrooms & Spinach

Do you have a Friday night family tradition? Ours has forever been nacho or pizza night – something about either one just seems to bring the family together for a night of laughter, we often follow it by an intense game or two of UNO.


  • 2 1/4 cups spelt flour
  • 1 package of active yeast
  • 2/3 of very warm water
  • 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
  • 3 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 of a butternut squash (peeled & cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 1 yellow onion (sliced into thin wedges)
  • 1 tsp himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 3 Tbsp basil pesto
  • 1.5 cups of sliced mushrooms (sauteed and browned)
  • 3 large handfuls of baby spinach (sauteed and wilted down)
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl combine dough ingredients.
  • Knead for about 4 mins
  • Roll out onto floured surface to desired thinness.
  • Place on baking pan and set side.
  • In a medium bowl, mix squash, onion, salt, pepper and oil until combined.
  • Spread mixture onto parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Place in the oven and roast about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Cook mushrooms & spinach in a little oil in a pan over medium high heat until mushrooms are browned and the spinach is wilted down.
  • Spread pesto over prepared pizza shell.
  • Top with squash mixture, spinach and cheese.
  • Place in the oven and bake 10 -15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  • I like to broil for a couple of minutes too to brown the top.
  • Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!!
