Butternut Squash, Sage and Gorgonzola Pizza

I made this pizza many months ago (December, I think) but I'm just now getting around to posting it. It has great winter flavors like butternut squash and sage. It was hard to not eat the whole pizza in one sitting. I'm sitting here in 83 degree weather wishing it was still winter weather so I could make this again.

Butternut Squash, Sage and Gorgonzola Pizza

This recipe is pretty easy. I made the pizza dough using this recipe, except I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, let it rise for about 30 minutes before topping, and made sure to spread it out really thin on the pan.

The toppings (in this order, bottom to top):
1 yellow onion, sliced and caramelized
Cubed butternut squash, roasted with salt and pepper for 30 mins
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola

Pop it in a 450 degree F oven for 7-10 minutes. Meanwhile, crisp up some fresh sage leaves in a pan with butter and top the pizza with it after it comes out of the oven.
