Here’s how it started: A rainy, dark Friday evening. I’m fighting a cold and grumpy as ever. The truth is that I know I need some homemade soup and fresh, healing foods, but what I really want is pizza. Yes, pizza.
In this moment I want nothing more than to sit on the couch in PJ’s, curl up with a snuggie (and preferably a cat), and watch The Walking Dead while I eat a giant pizza all by myself.
In that moment I decided there has to be a better way to fulfill that pizza craving. And, guess what? There is! It’s called delicata squash pizza boats!
Have you tried delicata squash before? Delicata squash is one of my seasonal favorites and it’s easier to prepare than some of the other winter squash varieties because you can actually eat the skins! (once they’re cooked, of course…) Some of my past favorite delicata squash recipes include: simple roasted delicata squash, warm winter squash salad, and delicata squash rings with cashews and mustard.
I really like recipes that aren’t labor intensive so the fact that this one involves a quick scooping of seeds, some baking time, and simply assembling yummy toppings makes it even better! And, it’s completely customizable so you can easily make it work for your diet regardless of your eating preferences or food allergies. Let’s get to it!
