Delicata is one of my all time favorite squash if nothing else than for its simplicity. As the name implies, the tender skin is well, delicate, only slightly tougher than a summer squash, and does not need to be peeled before eating. I like to slice it into rings and roast (seeds removed of course.)
I found this recipe months ago and it was inteneded to be topped by summer peaches, but I loved the idea of using sweet roasted squash instead. The pizza crust doesn’t have to rise overnight in the refrigerator, but the results will be more flavorful. As a matter of fact, I baked some leftover dough about 4 nights later with good results.
It is very hard to get stellar results in your home oven, but I think a pizza stone is a wise investment that will give you as close to a blistered, chewy crust as you are going to get without a wood-fired oven. I actually use one of The Professor’s kiln shelves, but you can find pizza stones at any kitchen or big box store.
