Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 naan thin crust pizza
  • 3/4 lb butternut squash peeled, cut into small 1/4 inch square pieces
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 6 oz fresh pancetta
  • 3/4 cup fresh whole-milk ricotta
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cup very thinly sliced Rainbow chard leaves

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 F.
  • In a large bowl, toss the squash with 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup, 1-1/2 teaspoon of the oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Spread it in a single layer on a large, heavy-duty, rimmed baking sheet and roast until tender and lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Let cool to warm.
  • Lower the oven temperature to 425 F.
  • Using a small pan, cook pancetta over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on either side. Remove from heat, place on a paper towel while you prepare other ingredients.
  • Brush the naan pizza crust lightly with 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, ensuring you cover the entire crust.
  • In a large bowl, gently toss the squash, onion, thyme, 1-1/2 teaspoon of the remaining oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Scatter the squash mixture evenly over the pizza, top with sliced pancetta and teaspoons of ricotta all over. Sprinkle with the pecorino and bake until brown. About 12- 15 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon syrup and 1 tablespoon oil, the vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the chard to the bowl, toss and coat. Scatter the chard over the flatbread. Cut into pieces and serve.
