Vegetarian Delicata BBQ Pizza Recipe | Rainbow Delicious

I’m excited to share with you this BBQ delicata pizza recipe.I love a good bbq chicken pizza but wondered if there could be a good vegetarian substitution.  I had a forlorn delicata squash from the farmer’s market that I didn’t know what to do with and decided it could be the perfect star of my imaginary vegetarian bbq pizza.  I was really happy with how this pizza turned out, and my whole family enjoyed it too.  I used a premade pizza dough, a favorite bbq sauce for the sauce, mozzarella cheese, cilantro, red onion and delicata squash. The delicata squash was simple to prepare, I simply roasted with some olive oil and seasonings (coriander, my favorite spice as of late), and love that I didn’t even have to peel the squash. This pizza was a win-win, it was a quick and easy dinner and a way for my sad delicata squash to find meaning in life.
