Spicy Sausage, Blue Cheese, and Butternut Squash Mini Pizzas


These mini grain free GAPS and SCD friendly ‘pizzas’ are a hit at my house. The pizzas pictured used blue cheese as the cheese, but I have done them with shredded Monterey Jack too with great success.  The sweet butternut squash, spicy sausage topping, and rich blue cheese are a delightful change from everyday meals.  Diced tomatoes or tomato sauce could be added under the sausage for more of a pizza flavor, but I think these are great just as they are.

Butternut Squash Pizza Ingredients

1 large butternut squash
1 cup spicy sausage, crumbled and browned
1 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded
Coconut oil for the pan

Butternut Squash Pizza Directions:

Serves 4

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Peel the neck of the butternut squash, slice into ¼ inch thick rounds.
Grease the bottom of two 9×13 inch pans or a large cookie sheet with coconut oil. Lay squash in a single layer along bottom. Bake for 15 minutes, flip, and them top with sausage and cheese. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes.

These are easiest to eat with a fork.  Enjoy!

    Hello Cara! Those pizzas look yummy and I hope to try them soon. Thank you so much for posting all of your GAPS friendly recipes. It’s new to us and were not completely on it yet…just slowly weaning ourselves off of grains and trying to add more GAPS friendly recipes to our menu. I hope to have my son completely on it this summer when my husband is off of work and can help with die-off issues, picky eating etc. I was on it for awhile myself, but I found that I couldn’t handle such a limited menu while I was in my 1st trimester so I unfortunately had to add a few things back in (no wheat gluten or cane sugar) like corn, fruit and cheese and potatoes on occasion. (I was doing the early stages of GAPS) Unfortunately, I felt a difference in my bowels when I did so so I know the diet was working for me…but all the things I could eat were making me queasy and I needed to expand for awhile.

    Anyways, I want to thank you for sharing your peanut butter brownies recipe. Oh my goodness! For about a month before I put myself on the beginning stages, I made them every Saturday night for me and my husband to enjoy while we watched a movie. Yummy! There one of my favorite desserts.

    This is such a good idea, and so easy! I make an almond flour pizza crust (with raw parmesan cheese, almond meal, eggs and italian seasoning). I’ve topped it with sausage, butternut squash, kale and chevre, which is a fantastic combo- I’m looking forward to trying it with the blue cheese and using the squash as the crust!
