  • Peel and dice your butternut squash and place it into the soup maker. Cook for 25 minutes on the chunky soup function until it is cooked.
  • In a large mixing bowl add your egg, your edam cheese, mustard, some salt and pepper and the oats.
  • Drain the excess liquid from the butternut squash and add the drained butternut squash to your mixing bowl.
  • Make your pizza dough into the shape of the Airfryer grill pan and push it down into the grill pan.
  • Decorate your pizza crust bases with the toppings of your choice. We covered ours with big slices of cheddar, sliced tomatoes, dried oregano and fresh basil.
  • Place in the Airfryer and cook for 15 minutes on 180c/360f.
  • Serve warm.


1. I used my soup maker for steaming the butternut squash. You could also use a steamer or an Instant Pot. I recommend AGAINST boiling as when you boil vegetables not only does it lose its flavour but its nutritional value too.
2. I normally blend my gluten free oats in my recipes but in this version it adds some chunky texture to the recipe and really helps combine the ingredient for a really good pizza crust.
3. I remove the excess liquid from butternut squash using a scruffy white pillow case. Then squeezing out the liquid over the sink, until there is nothing left to squeeze.
4. I use Edam as the cheese in the butternut squash pizza crust. This is because it is a softer cheese and is better for making a crust with that has a less of a melting effect. This means that you won’t end up with an exploding pizza crust when cooked.
5. My pizza dough made 2 lots for the grill pan so that we could have 2 good sized pizzas.
