In Season:
Butternut Squash

Available in the early fall through the winter, butternut squash is the most flavorful and versatile of its vine-ripened brethren. With a taste that's part pumpkin and part yam, the sweet and nutty flesh makes for a casual and comfortable meal. Not to mention a nutritional jackpot. And while there are gobs of soup, casserole and bread recipes, this fool-proof pizza delicately balances the sweet and savory. Serve it with a bottle of Chenin Blancicon and feel free to eat with you hands. About $3, at grocery stores and farmers' markets. - Jordan Taylor
