Autumn Butternut Sage Kale Pesto Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust

219

This earthy autumn pizza is healthy and boasts the best ingredients fall has to offer. My sage kale pesto recipe uses seasonal ingredients to amplify the flavor of the pizza. The sage, kale, and walnuts pair nicely with the sweet butternut squash and woody mushrooms. Everything grounds together on a healthy whole wheat crust, which adds to the earthy element to the recipe. Once baked, the pizza is topped with Violife vegan parmesan and fresh sage leaves.

I love pizza and make it for dinner every Saturday. This recipe is a tasty way to incorporate vegetables and whole grains into your diet. I also enjoy cooking with seasonal ingredients which I incorporated into this recipe. As with all of my recipes, I encourage you to make adaptations and substitutions to incorporate your favorite foods and to suit the flavors of your palette. Enjoy!
