I came up with this butternut squash and goat cheese pizza recipe completely by accident. I always keep tortillas, onions and goat cheese in my house, but for some reason, I had purchased a bag of sliced butternut squash earlier that day on a whim, not sure what I was going to do with it.

After fiddling around in my kitchen for a bit, this beautiful little creature was born.

As always, Trader Joe’s brown rice tortillas are my favorite for flatbreads, but feel free to use any tortilla of your choice.

This recipe is also great with caramelized onions, but if you only have regular onions, those work too.

And for those of you looking for a healthy, butter-free white sauce for pizza or pasta, look no further.
