I found this recipe whilst searching for squash recipes one day. I often get vegetable boxes from the local farm and, depending on the time of year, I sometimes end up with an abundance of squash. I love squash soup and risotto but I also like to try new things so I enjoy searching for and trying out new recipe ideas.
As soon as I saw this recipe I thought it was worth a try. I only used 3 ingredients for these squash pizzas as my children like plain cheese and tomato pizza but you could add any topping of your choice. It is a fantastic way to get your children eating vegetables as the squash is disguised by the topping. The children enjoyed helping me make this too. I always think getting the children to help prepare food is another good way of getting them interested in it and hopefully eating it!
I really was pleasantly surprised with the taste as well. It tasted just like pizza! I think it would make a good alternative for those who can't eat bread or for those who are looking for something healthy.
One squash (I used a small acorn squash)
Tin of tomatoes or passata
Any other toppings of your choice
First, slice the squash and place it on a baking tray.
Next, spread the tomatoes or passata over the top. Then cover with cheese and any toppings.
Finally, bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese turns golden and squash is soft.
