Kabocha Squash Pizza
           

Pizza Dough 

(Makes enough for two pizzas)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/4-ounce packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast

3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 tbsp fresh or dried rosemary, chopped finely

1 1/3 cup water

 


Almond Feta Cheese

1/2 cup blanched almonds

juice of 1 lime

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 clove garlic

1/2 tsp salt 

 

Squash Pizza Sauce

2 cups cubed kabocha squash, uncooked

1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk

1/4 tsp garlic powder 

1/4 tsp onion powder 

2 tbsp nutritional yeast 

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper 

 

Pizza Toppings

1 cup fresh arugula 

1/4 cup chopped walnuts 

1 avocado 

1/4 of 1 kabocha squash 

 


Directions:

1. Whisk 1 1/3 cups warm water (105 degrees F) and the sugar in a bowl; sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside until foamy, about 10 minutes.


2. Whisk the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the yeast mixture. Gradually stir with a wooden spoon to make a rough dough.


3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes, dusting with more flour if necessary. Form into 2 balls.  Cover tightly with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature until doubled in size, about 1 hour, 30 minutes.

 

4. Meanwhile, cut a kabocha squash is half. Cut 3/4 of the halved piece in cubes and the rest of the squash into 1/2 inch long peices. You can keep the skin on! Season squash with salt and pepper.

 

5. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes at 400 degrees F.

 

6. Meanwhile place all almond feta ingredients into a high speed blender and blende until well combined. You may need to pulse and scrape down sides throughout the process. Scoop out into a bowl until read to use.

 

7. Once the kabocha squash is done, remove from oven and place into a food processor with garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast and soy milk. Blend until smooth and scoop into a bowl until ready to use.

 

8. Once everything is ready and dough has risen for atlas 1 1/2 hours, cover a clean working surface with flour and roll out half the dough. The dough makes two medium sized pizzas.

 

9. Roll our pizza dough until you reach the desired thickness. Fold in half and then fold again and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

 

10. Unfold dough and begin to assemble by first spreading a generous layer of squash sauce.

 

11. Scoop small spoonfuls of vegan feta and place throughout pizza.

 

12. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over pizza, then the kabocha slices and bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees F.

 

13. Once pizza is out of the oven, Sprinkle over fresh arugula and slices of avocado. ENJOY.
