Butternut Squash Flatbread Pizza

A favorite of these Flatbread pizzas is the flexibility they provide to use just about any ingredients.  Here, I use some butternut squash and sage to create a Fall inspired flatbread pizza, but frankly, I’ll make it all year long.  The sweet butternut squash is sliced thin, and then roasted in oven until just tender.
