There is nothing better in the fall than the combination of butternut squash and pears - that is until you put it all on a pizza and cover it in melted cheese. I don't know about you but I have been obsessed with root vegetables paired with apples and pears this season. There have been trays of them roasted, pans of them made into hash, and countless soups. However somehow I never thought of making a pizza with them until last weekend. I was going to a dinner and needed to bring a vegetarian appetizer. Immediately I thought of making pizza or flatbread and decided on this yummy combination of squash, spinach, mozzarella, and fresh pears for sweetness and crunch.
