At a local pizzeria I get what they call a Positano Pizza. What does Positano mean? Its a city along the Amalfi Coast. I am sure that whoever named this pizza had some specific reason why he or she named the Positano. In my mind, when I ordered the Positano (ah hem a couple of different times, at different visits) , I would think in my head, now, what was that pizza, oh yes, Positano. I know the name because it is "positively" good for you with its butternut squash all over it. Isn't it funny how I can fool myself into believing a pizza is good for me? Ha!
It is delicious! I tried to make it home the way they did before but it just didn't come out to my liking. This time however, I think I got it right. Its not exactly what they do but it was delicious to me! I think I nailed it! My pizza picky husband agreed.
Positively Butternut Pizza
1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup butternut squash that has been cubed and roasted
Aleppo Pepper or Crushed Red Pepper
crushed black pepper
If you want a crispy pizza, there is all kinds of ways to go about it but here I took the easy route. I used an air bake pan. It worked perfectly. I sprayed with pam and spread my dough on it.
