Using the butternut squash: Butternut squash pita pizza

In the process of trying to use the butternut squash backlog, I had some leftover roasted butternut squash and mushrooms. I decided to make them into a pita pizza.

I started with a layer of the roasted butternut squash, which I lightly mashed on to the pita. Then I put on the roasted mushrooms (cutting the whole mushrooms into quarters) and dollops of ricotta. Finally, I covered the pizza with some shredded mozzarella.
I baked it in a 400 degree oven until the cheese was melted, which took about 12 minutes.
I really enjoyed the butternut squash as the sauce base for the pizza. However, I'm the only one in the family who thinks that. No one tried the pita pizza with me.
