Gluten Free Hawaiian Harvest Pizza


So I think I’m having a love affair with gluten-free pizza. I probably eat it like one to two times a week. That’s totally normal, right?! This fall version was definitely hubby’s favorite! And I promise it’s super easy to make. You can find pre-made gluten-free pizza crust in the frozen food section of almost any grocery store. I would recommend getting 2 crusts if you’re serving 4+ people.


2 gluten-free pizza crusts (Udi’s Gluten Free is my favorite)

1/2 cup Hawaiian BBQ sauce (I prefer this one, but any BBQ sauce will do)

2 handfuls of chopped kale

1 large roasted butternut squash (peed and diced, directions here)

1 lb lean ground chicken or turkey

1 cup shaved parmesan or any cheese of choice

1/2 tsp salt

1 minced garlic clove

1/4 tsp pepper

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel and dice your Butternut Squash, if not already done. (Tip: Some grocers sell it pre-diced for you already!)
  3. Toss the squash in 1 tbsp EVOO and bake for about 10 min while you cook the meat.
  4. Cook the ground meat in a large skillet with 1 tbsp EVOO on medium high heat for about 10 min until no longer pink.
  5. Remove the butternut squash from the oven and mix with the meat. Add kale, salt, pepper, and garlic. Mix well. (Tip: You can also shake it all up in a large baggie if you prefer.)
  6. Coat your pizza crust with BBQ sauce and spread the ingredients out on top. Sprinkle cheese on last.
  7. Continue baking on 400-425 per the pizza crust directions (roughly 10 minutes). The crust and kale should be nice and crispy.
  8. Remove from the oven and enjoy! Each pizza should yield about 6-8 slices.
