  • 1/3 butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1/4 head radicchio, cored and cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound refrigerated pizza dough, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 475 degrees . On a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, toss the butternut squash with 1 tablespoon olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast in the upper third of the oven until golden and slightly softened, about 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the garlic and parsley with 2 tablespoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the radicchio and onion with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper; add the roasted squash and toss, reserving the baking sheet and discarding the parchment.

Line the reserved baking sheet with a clean sheet of parchment. Stretch the dough to fit the baking sheet and smear the garlic mixture on top, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle the cheese on top, followed by the squash mixture. Bake in the lower third of the oven until the crust is deep golden, about 15 minutes.
