Pizza with Squash, Spinach, and Goat Cheese

Like the green salad I posted earlier this month, this recipe leverages the Caramelized Roasted Butternut Cubes my sister and I made at Christmas.  Do try them; it's a really excellent treatment for squash.

14-inch pizza crust
Olive oil
2-3 oz. shredded mozzarella
1/4 lb spinach, well chopped or cut into ribbons
1 1/2 cups Caramelized Roasted Butternut Cubes
2-3 oz. crumbled goat cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Lightly paint the crust with olive oil.

Sprinkle the crust with mozzarella, then cover with spinach.  Add squash for the next layer, then goat cheese.  Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the crust is done and cheese begins to brown.

Serves 3-4.
