Roasted Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onions and Bacon Pizza

Pre-baked PIZZA CRUST

2 1/2 c. BUTTERNUT SQUASH, cubed (I tried the fresh already cubed squash and it worked well!)
1 Tbsp. DARK BROWN SUGAR
SALT and PEPPER, to taste
EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
6 strips BACON, sliced crosswise in small pieces
1 ONION, sliced
1/2 c. GOAT CHEESE CRUMBLES
1 c. JALAPENO PEPPER CHEESE, shredded
10 ounce bag fresh SPINACH
1 SCALLION, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 425F.

On a roasting pan lined with foil, mix butternut squash, brown sugar, salt and pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
Roast for about 15 minutes or until squash is tender.

In a skillet, cook bacon pieces until browned.
Remove from skillet and set on a plate lined with a a paper towel.

In the same skillet, cook onions in the bacon fat for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned and caramelized.

Rinse spinach and put in a pot and place over medium heat for several minutes until wilted.
Remove from pot and drain in a collander pressing to extract any excess water.

Top pizza crust with part of the goat cheese and pepper cheese, butternut squash, bacon, onions, spinach and the remaining cheese.
Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and a grinding of fresh pepper.

Bake at 425F for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Garnish with sliced scallion.

Sounds and looks delicious!
My problem looking at your Recipe Box is that I check PBase when I wake up and you have the tastiest looking dishes on screen - all of which make me hungry and it's only breakfast time!
