  • Add arugula and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Notes

  • Make sure to preheat your oven so it's nice and hot before baking the pizzas. This helps create a super crispy base!
  • Cut the squash into thin slices so they cook quickly.
  • If you don't like goats cheese you could use a blue cheese, mozzarella, or any cheese you like!
  • Keep an eye on the garlic when sauteing it so it doesn't burn. Garlic can burn easily and turn very bitter.
  • Only add the arugula to the pizza after baking it adds a nice fresh peppery crunch.
  • I like to top my pizza with balsamic vinegar but that's totally optional.
