This fall pizza celebrates the best produce of the season! A homemade pizza base topped with acorn squash, prosciutto, finely sliced apple and other fally goodness! Perfect for a date night, or girls night in!
I'm back! Not that I was ever really gone, I just needed a week off from posting to sort out my life and to get on top of some projects! Sometimes just having a little time off can make the world of difference! This time last week, I started this post, staring into my screen with not an ounce of motivation or inspiration to complete it!
To me, that was a tell-tale sign that I needed to take a moment to step back, get my creative mojo back and post once I was feeling back to my usual self! Which I TOTALLY AM!
I actually had the past five days off work. Wednesday and Thursday was no school for students, so I didn't get a call in for a job, and Friday was veterans day!
Did I get anything done at all? Barely! Do I feel relaxed and refreshed? Absolutely!
I spent a blissful 5 days catching up on some work that I have for some clients, watching multiple episodes of British cooking shows on Netflix and hours chilling with the Arch man, teaching him some new tricks and skills.
In saying that however, for a short time I will be cutting down my posts to once a week. I hate doing this, but with trying to be a good dog mum, wife, work full time and still maintain blog posts is just a little overwhelming right now!
But let's get down to business and talk about this fall pizza!
I love this pizza for many reasons.
- it tastes freaking delicious (duh')
- it uses some of my favourite fall produce
- it's perfect for a date night or girls night in. Fire, wine, pizza you feeling me?
I absolutely love making my own homemade pizza, and Adam and I do it quite a bit! We'll often have friends around for a pizza night on a Friday night and it is really no hassle or fuss at all!
This fall pizza is super easy, the hardest and most time confusing part is roasting up the acorn squash. If you can't find acorn squash, then butternut squash or Kent pumpkin (if you're in Australia) would work perfectly.
This pizza is earthy, but with a slightly subtle sweetness to is and has ALL the textures! It's creamy, crunchy and so, SO delicious!
This harvest pizza is a great way to showcase some beautiful seasonal produce and incorporates flavours and textures that will blow your mind!
Make it today! Doooo it! Now! Go! On your way! Oh and tag me on Instagram @thehomecookskitchen if you make it, I'd love to see your work!

It´s so important to take some time off, brings everything back together, this pizza sounds so good, I am a sucker for any type of pizza and this pie you have created is right up my alley, nothing better than pizza and wine for a relaxing night 🙂
Totally agree on all of that! oh pizza and wine is my absolute favourite for date night or lazy night in! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
