Creamy bechamel sauce, nutty acorn squash, tangy goat cheese, and savory caramelized onions paired with the earthy notes of rosemary and nutmeg- all on a thin and crispy crust.  This unique fall pizza has it going on!

Check the nutrition facts on the chèvre, or goat’s cheese.  Most chèvres are fairly low in sodium, but this isn’t always the case.  The chèvre used in this recipe has 45 mg of sodium per serving.
