Pizza with Crispy Kale, Butternut Squash, Bacon & Smoked Mozzarella Recipes from The Kitchn

A wee two-pounder is plenty for both pizzas, and you'll still sometimes have leftover squash. But since butternuts can be so time-consuming to prepare, I often roast a larger squash and then save or freeze the extra for other meals during the week.

Anti-candida, sugar-free, grain-free, vegan Caramelized Onion, Shaved Butternut and Goat Cheese Pizza Recipe. When I was in grade school, there was exactly one boy (let’s call him Jerome) in our school who had a food allergy (to peanuts). Jerome was already a bit too large (he towered over the rest of us; even in grade three, he was already level with our teacher, Mrs. B’s shoulders); a bit too goofy (he had one of those snorty-hiccuping laughs, sounding slightly porcine and aquatic at the same time); and a bit too fleshy, with excess skin seeming to hang from his waistband and cheeks, his complexion as white and matte as newly painted classrooms after summer break.

(For some insightful, inspiring musings on living a life with food restrictions–for whatever reasons–take a peek at Iris’s honest post about her own dietary parameters). As it stands, my friends generally think of me as pretty wacky (oh, wait, they thought that even before the ACD) and it’s always a challenge to join in on “normal” social activities while on this diet.
