Turn leftovers into something brand new like this Butternut Squash and Kale Pita Pizza.
This recipe was inspired by leftovers and of course Toufyan Bakeries. Adrian and I like to watch Chopped and anytime I have a refrigerator full of leftovers, I pretend I am on an episode. In this mystery basket, the items that I had to work with was leftover roasted butternut squash, an already baked sweet potato, and kale that was on its last legs.
I utilize pitas for pizzas often as they are the perfect size for a personal pie. Toufayan Bakeries uses old-world recipes with only top quality, wholesome ingredients. Toufayan Pita is naturally cholesterol free and trans fat-free, so it’s the perfect vessel to load with your favorite toppings!
I wanted to try something different than mozzarella cheese on top, so I went for fontina. It paired perfectly with this flavor combination since this semi-soft cow’s cheese has a gentle buttery and nutty flavor.
- 2 whole wheat Toufayan Pita Bread pitas
- 1 sweet potato, baked skin removed
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons low-sodium chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup butternut squash, cubed and roasted
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 small red onion, sliced
- 2 cups kale, stems removed, roughly chopped
- ½ cup fontina cheese, shredded
- (optional) 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Remove the skin from the sweet potato. In a small food processor, puree the sweet potato, garlic, chicken stock, and black pepper. Spread evenly on both of the pitas.
- In a large saute pan over low-medium heat, saute onions until caramelized. Just as the onions are about done, add the kale and saute until kale has wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
- Assemble your pizzas by spreading the sweet potato mixture at the bottom, adding the caramelized onions and kale, then butternut squash.
- Sprinkle with cheese and place in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until cheese has melted and pizza is warmed through.
- Let slightly cool and drizzle with balsamic glaze, if using.
