Butternut squash and nduja... sweet and spicy. Some might say it's their new fave. Sometimes is good to break away from the normal tomato or white base and this recipe is perfect for just that. Butternut squash is loaded with Vitamin A, in fact one cup provides more than you need for the whole day! Though the skin is not as thin as a summer squash or Delicata, it is edible, and the seeds can be baked and eaten! We love butternut squash, this base can be combined with a multitude of other toppings, so feel free to experiment.

Place a small amount of the butternut squash sauce onto the middle of your pizza and use the back of your spoon to spread the sauce, whilst allowing an inch or so to form a crust.
