Butternut Squash Pizza at Its Best

I have searched high and low for the perfect vegetable pizza recipes. I have two favorites and this butternut squash recipe is by far one of my favorite ones. The refrigerated pizza dough is perfect and tasty when using Pillsbury crusts. When serving with fresh fruit you have a perfect summer time meal.

You can find another favorite breakfast pizza recipe at Geauga News.
