Delicata Squash Chicken Pesto Pizza

There’s been something going on between me and pizza. What I love about homemade pizza is I can add leftovers on top or just whatever I crave. Chicken pizza? Got it. Leftover delicata squash from meal prep? Just throw it on top of a pizza. Add all the leftovers on top and you got yourself super flavorful slices of delicious.

Anyways, I can work more on my blog now because I just got done with my third dietetic internship interview! It felt like a marathon… haha, waiting and preparing for the next one felt like years. I’m really hoping for the best! I did the best I can, so the next step is to keep preparing myself professionally as a future RD.

Well, here’s a pizza. A pesto pizza! Pesto is one of my favorite spreads for sandwiches, pizza and pasta! I just love basil and pine nuts. Something about nuts make for the BEST spreads! Hummus, cashew creams – I’m definitely a fan of all that! Nuts are a great source of healthy fats and I always try to incorporate it in my meals/snack!
