Fall Favorite: Roasted Butternut and Caramelized Onion Flatbread

Blake Branen Rosencrantz - Thursday, October 25, 2012

The lazy, relaxed days of summer are over. While we will miss the sunny days, we could not be more excited for the start of Fall. Leaves changing colors, pumpkin spice mochas, and harvest – what could be better? Another thing to love about this season is the food.

Even though Fall is a busy time, that doesn’t mean that quick meals have to come out of a box or can. With just a little bit of planning, you can have a quick homemade meal like this rustic butternut squash and caramelized onion flatbread. (Recipe via)


Roasted Butternut Squash 1 butternut squash, cut into 1-inch chunks 2 tbsp. olive oil salt + pepper to taste Caramelized Onions 1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil 2 large onions, halved & thinly sliced salt + pepper to taste Flatbread 1 prepared pizza crust 1/2 of caramelized onions 1/2 c. shredded Fontina or Italian blend cheese 1/2 of roasted butternut squash 2 tsp. olive oil 2 tbsp. sage leaves, cut into ribbons 2 tbsp. chopped toasted walnuts (optional)


Roasted Butternut Squash Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Divide squash onto 2 rimmed baking sheets and drizzle each sheet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until tender. Caramelized Onions Heat oil in a large pan over low heat. Add onions and a dash of salt. Cook until completely caramelized, stirring occasionally at first and more often as onions begin to brown. Depending on your stove, this could take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour. Season with black pepper. (For more help on caramelizing onions check out: How to Caramelize Onions Like a Pro) Flatbread Preheat oven to temperature indicated on pizza crust package. Top crust with caramelized onions, cheese, and half of the squash. Bake for time on package or until squash is heated through and cheese has melted. While the flatbread is baking, heat oil in small skillet over medium high heat. Add sage leaves and saute, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes or until leaves are crispy, but still green. Sprinkle sage leaves and walnuts on pizza before serving. Image Source:
