Putting Your Pizza Stone to Work: Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Pizza

Yesterday, we talked about pizza stones and how you can improve upon those store-bought ones with cheap unglazed quarry tiles purchased at Home Depot. Today, let's put those tiles to the test with a delicious Fall-oriented pizza made with butternut squash instead of tomato sauce. 

I made this pizza over the weekend at home, and let me say it was a transcendent experience. The ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes, squash, and goat cheese all celebrate warm, Fall flavors. And the whole wheat crust is dense, rich, and crackly thanks to the high heat of the stone. Sure, it takes a bit of work, but once you get the technique down, making a quality pie at home is easy. You can also prep all the ingredients ahead of time, and assemble the next day.
