Carmelized Onions, Sage, & Butternut Squash Pizza

This pizza is amazing. To my surprise it is filling too. Usually, my husband and I can eat almost an entire pizza but we still had 4 pieces left. I attribute this to the butternut squash.
Adapted from A Full Measure of Happiness
Pizza dough (I use the premade dough from Central Market)
1 Butternut squash, peeled and cut into cubes
1 Small sweet yellow onion
Dash of salt
Olive oil for drizzling
Handful of fresh sage leaves (about 20)
1/2 Cup-1 Cup of pizza sauce
3 ounces of goat cheese
1-2 Cups of reduced fat mozzarella cheese
All of the ingredients minus the pizza sauce!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut your onion into long slices. Place 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a saute pan with the onions. Cook on LOW heat for 45 minutes-1 hour, stirring occasionally, until onions turn a golden brown
While the onions are cooking, peel the top portion of the squash and cut lengthwise.
Remove the seeds from the squash. DO NOT DISCARD the seeds. I have a recipe for the seeds tomorrow so check back.
Cut the squash into cube-sized pieces. You do not need to use the bottom of the squash (where you did not peel) as there is plenty of squash from the stem.
Spread the butternut squash and HALF of the sage leaves on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the squash is tender.
Flour the dough and spread it out into the shape of the pizza you want.
I use a foil-lined, baking sheet covered with nonstick spray to put my pizza dough in.
Spoon the pizza sauce on top. Layer the butternut squash, carmelized onions and ALL of the sage leaves on top.
Then sprinkle both types of cheese on top.
Cook for 20 minutes or until cheese turns a golden brown.

YUM! I will try this. Last night I made this butternut squash/sage/pine nut/ parmesan pasta. The recipe is really similar to this. Love your site's new look, by the way. Hope to see you soon :)
