Butternut squash pizza



Butternut squash Pizza base

  • 3 Cups Mashed Butternut Squash (cooked)
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup oat Flour
  • 2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

Green Pizza Sauce

  • 1/2 cup raw pistachios
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • a handful of coriander (optional)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • Juice and zest of one small lemon ( I love my sauce lemony, you can add 1/2 a lemon if you prefer)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


You can add here your favourite toppings, here are some of my favourite

  • Clarence court ‘free to fly’ quail eggs
  • Baby tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • baby green leaves
  • edible flowers
  • Buckthorn berries (just cause they match the colour scheme and I had them handy :-))



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Cut the butternut squash in half and brush it with olive oil and add any seasoning you prefer (I added fresh oregano). Roast in the oven for about an hour.


 2. White the squash is roasting, prepare the pizza sauce.

3. In a food processor, blitz the pistachios

4. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and process for couple minutes

5. Put the sauce in the fridge  6. Place the cooked butternut in a bowl
7. Mix the rest of the pizza crust ingredients

8. Place the mixture evenly on a pizza pan or a baking pan (I used a 30 cm diameter pan) (use your hands) and cook in the oven for 30 minutes (or more depending on your oven) until obtaining crispy crust base (oven preheated to 180 degrees C). You can always check and decide how crispy you want it to be (but make sure you don’t burn the base :-))!

9. While the pizza is baking prepare the topping

10. Hard boil the qual eggs (approximately three minutes in boiling water). If you prefer the eggs to be soft, then place in boiled water for 1 minute and the keep for further 30 seconds.

11. Spread the green sauce on the base and add the hard boiled qual eggs and play with the others ingredients as you prefer.
