Calabaza and veggie pizza

Instead of tomato sauce, try puréed or mashed calabaza. It's sweeter and acts as a great base for other veggies.


1 lb or 1 1/2 cups of baked calabaza
non-fat cooking spray
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 refrigerated thin pizza crust
3 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
1 tsp thyme

Yield: 8 slices
Prep time: 15 minutes, plus 10 minutes pizza baking and 40 minutes calabaza baking

Cooking with calabaza


1. Preheat oven to temperature on pizza crust package.
2. Purée or in a large bowl mash the baked calabaza. Put aside.

4. Bake as directed on the dough package or about 10 to 12 minutes.
