Active: 40 min Total: 40 min
This meal was originally a pizza with similar flavors (back in 2017), but we simplified things this time around and used flatbread instead of pizza dough. It's great either way, so feel free to use pizza dough if you prefer.

  • Shallots - 2 cloves , diced
  • Cheese, fresh mozzarella - 5 oz , thinly sliced or grated

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. If you didn’t already roast the squash with Monday’s meal, toss squash with olive oil (portion for squash) and some salt. Spread out on a sheet pan in an even layer (use two sheet pans if needed to prevent overcrowding). Roast until tender, 25 to 30 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through cooking.
  3. When squash is done roasting (or near the end of roasting), spread flatbreads out in a single layer on a sheet pan. Brush with olive oil (portion for flatbread). Transfer to the oven and cook until flatbreads are lightly browned on top, ~10 minutes.
  4. Top toasted flatbreads with hummus, mozzarella, shallots (portion for flatbread), and squash. Bake for another 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Remove flatbreads and top with parmesan cheese.
  6. Toss spinach and apples in vinaigrette until dressed to your liking.
  7. Slice flatbreads and enjoy with salad on the side.
