Every Friday at our house is Pizza-movie night. For one, I love having one thing on the weekly menu that I don’t have to think about. For another thing, who doesn’t love pizza?!

Sometimes we just do plain pepperoni, but we also love more unique ideas, such as a White Pizza or Turkey Cranberry Pizza.

I found all these beautiful, bursting with flavor, vegetables at Walmart. I love fall veggies!!

I’m pretty passionate about the family dinner. I want my family to gather each night over a meal. And we do. But I also know the struggle is real! Working around schedules and extracurricular activities is tricky. I have 4 kids, believe me, I know.

If you’re not in a position to gather with your family every night, aim for  once a week (or a few times). It is so beneficial to your relationships. I always say food draws them in!

Rustic Harvest Vegetable Pizza

So, let’s talk about this pizza. It’s made with all the best fall veggies~

  • butternut squash
  • eggplant
  • onion
  • garlic
  • sweet potatoes

Of course you’ll need some pizza dough and some sauce. I really like Prego Farmers’ Market® sauces because they’re made with the ingredients that you would find at your local farmer’s market. The flavor is incredible.

I used the Prego Farmers’ Market® Tomato & Basil sauce for this recipe, but they also have Roasted Garlic and Classic Marinara. Besides putting this on your pizza, you’ll love it for your pasta and other Italian dishes too. YUM!

Instructions~

bowl of diced veggies: squash, onions, eggplant and sweet potatoes, for pizza.

First prepare your veggies. Just chop everything up, drizzle some olive oil on them, and some Italian seasoning.

Then you’ll roast them in a 400 degree oven until their tender. Roasting brings such a depth of flavor to your veggies. It’s so good!

Once those are finished, it’s time to start your pizza. This goes pretty fast, so I would recommend having all your ingredients ready to go.

I made this pizza in a cast iron skillet and it makes an amazing crust. It’s a little crispy on the outside yet soft chewy on the inside. Think Chicago style deep dish.

In order to do this, have your pizza dough all rolled out and ready to go. Heat your cast iron skillet so it’s hot, but not smoking. Now, place the dough (carefully! It’s hot!) in the skillet and let it cook for a few minutes.

When it starts to bubble, you can add your sauce, cheese and toppings. Don’t be afraid to bring that sauce all the way up the edges of the crust. It sort of caramelizes and absorbs into the edges while in the oven making it even more flavorful.

Finish this off in a preheated oven. It’ll only take 10 minutes or so and you’ll have ooey gooey cheesy-crispy chewy crust-flavor bursting toppings-yumminess!

I know that last line may have made no sense whatsoever, but trust me, you want to make this Rustic Harvest Vegetable Pizza. Tonight!
