A delicious twist on homemade pizza using the best of what's in season and local. Submitted by Liz.
1 spaghetti squash
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
1 whole wheat pizza dough
2 tsps. fresh thyme
1/2 cup smoked cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan, freshly grated
1 tbsp. nutmeg
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice squash in half, rub the inside with olive oil, salt, pepper, and nutmeg and place flesh side down in a baking dish. Bake until tender, about 30-40 minutes. Let cool enough to touch, then use a fork to scrape spaghetti-like strings into a bowl. Turn the oven temp up to 450 degrees F. and place a pizza stone in the oven. Roll out, or hand toss, the dough to your desired thickness and drizzle with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of thyme. Top with the smoked cheddar and about 1/3 of the squash, then finish with the Parmesan and a sprinkling of nutmeg. Gently slide your pizza onto the pre-heated stone in the oven and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
