This recipe was pretty good. It was easy enough to make. I wanted to make it a bit healthier, so I traded 1/2 of the flour for whole wheat flour. Maybe it was because of this, but I thought the dough had a slightly strange after taste. My husband loved it. I also didn't have enough sage, so I did 1/2 sage and 1/2 fresh parsley. It was a very pretty pizza. I think it just needs a bit more flavor. Maybe garlic or something would kick it up a notch. It was good. And I would definitely recommend making it-- it just needs a little something else...

I love butternut squash but I really adored this recipe. This is the second homemade crust I've been able to make in my lifetime following their directions! Husband wasn't as fond of it but I'll serve it for girlfriend togethers and bring to potlucks by making it on rectangular tray, easier to cut. I served it with spinach salad w dressing in Tricolor bitter greens salad. I put l l/2 cups cheese which might not have been necessary. Used Gwaltney 40% less fat bacon, 3 sl/60cal, so used 6 sl bacon. No fresh sage so used 2 t ground sage. Made double batch squash/freezing to save for next time. Also, when making pizza, always have ready made crust nearby encase of time crunch.

An all time favorite in our house! Delicious if you like squash. A very unique taste and we use this crust recipe for other homemade pizzas when we want something light-tasting and not so thick. The fontina cheese makes this recipe, so do not substitute on that. A bit time consuming, but you could always roast the squash ahead of time. highly recommended.
