Roasted Butternut Pizza with Crispy Sage

We have a regular pizza night in our house and there is always a bit of competition on how to change it up. Has anyone watched the Chef's Table pizza series on Netflix? It is inspiring. So what's a girl to do? So many ideas, so hard to fit them all into one little website!

This recipe is not to be confused with Butternut and Bocconcini Pizza from Keeping it Simple fame, although you could be forgiven for assuming they are the same.

I love, (I mean LOVE) brown butter, and I love pumpkin, (butternut squash to all my Americans) and together with some crispy sage they are a match made in heaven. You will see that flavour combo appear quite regularly on here. Try it out, you will be hooked. Add the hot base of a puffy pizza dough, well. What more can I add? Pizza night anyone?
