  • 2 3/4 cup peeled and cubed butternut squash (1/2 inch cubes)
  • 1/2 TBSP white chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 TBSP filtered water
  • 1/2 TBSP raw tahini
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 TBSP lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • pinch Himalayan sea salt
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 container Hope Foods Kale Pesto Hummus, or sub any homemade or store bought pesto
  • 1 bell pepper, any color, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch broccolini, trimmed and chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • vegan parmesan, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a pizza pan with parchment paper.
  2. Steam cubed butternut squash for about 8 minutes or until fork tender.
  3. While the squash is steaming, prep a large bowl with white chia seeds and water and mix to combine. Set aside.
  4. When squash is done, drain and add cubes to the chia seeds bowl and lightly smash to combine.
  5. Add raw tahini and lemon juice and stir to combine.
  6. Add oat flour, almond meal, garlic powder, dried basil, oregano, Himalayan sea salt, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Mix to combine. The dough should be thick but spreadable.
  7. Spread into a circle on the parchment paper using a rubber spatula, with crust about 1/2″ thick.
  8. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and set.
  9. Add veggies to a separate parchment lined baking sheet with a pinch of Himalayan sea salt, basil, and red pepper flakes and bake for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove crust from the oven and spread crust with hummus or a store bought pesto. Add on roasted veggies and top with a pinch of red pepper flakes and vegan parmesan.
  11. Store leftovers in the fridge for 1-2 days, though best when fresh.
