Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cut, peeled butternut squash
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1 8-ounce prebaked thin pizza crust
  • 5 tbsp refrigerated light alfredo sauce
  • 1 tsp EVOO
  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Place squash in a large microwave-safe dish; add water to a depth of 1/2 inch. Cover with plastic wrap; microwave at HIGH for 5 minutes. Drain and toss squash with 1/8 tsp sea salt.
  3. While squash cooks, place pizza crust on a baking sheet; spread alfredo sauce over crust.
  4. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over high heat. Add spinach; sauté 1 minute. Stir in remaining 1/8 tsp salt. Arrange wilted spinach over sauce. Top with squash and goat cheese; sprinkle with pepper.
