Lasagna Pizza

It’s a slow morning over here!


[Bella was mad for the lack of recent blog face time, so I had to remedy that. Sorry, Bell]

The Pilot and I were feeling adventurous and decided to pry ourselves off the couch from watching X Factor and go out and do something last night. Cocktails and mocktails sounded like a good plan, so we headed over to our favorite patio spot at Sakura. We had no idea that a benefit dinner was going on, so the patio was closed. Sooooo we ended up chilling at the madre’s and then hitting Starbucks. At least we went out, eh?

hot chocolate

[Snowman cups.. or snowman anything, rather… make me so very happy]

I ordered a short drink (soy hot chocolate) since I was still extremely full from dinner.


Butternut squash, goat cheese and arugula pizza!

I based this pizza off my favorite lasagna– thought it would be good in pizza form, and it was incredible.

There’s not really a recipe, but here’s what I did:

Used a pack of gluten-free dough


let it rise and all that jazz

dough (2) 

steamed some bnut squash (in the microwave, covered with a damp paper towel)


and after pre-baking the crust, topped with goat cheese (soft and gouda), marinara, butternut squash, arugula, sea salt, pepper and oregano.


pizza (2)

No words.

I actually might have a piece with an egg for breakfast….

The Pilot is off work today, so we’re going to get some things done around the casa before we leave tomorrow.

See ya later with a Fashion post!



A very happy Veteran’s Day day to those who have served and continue to serve and protect our country. Sending love and prayers to all of the military families out there <3

    Happy Veteran’s Day to you and the Pilot too Gina! Your pizza looks delicious! I’m going to have to try that gluten free crust.. I bought a pre-mixed bag of pizza dough a while ago but it was WAY more than I actually needed, and sadly ended up wasting quite a bit. Bob’s Red Mill it is!

  4. Claire @ Live and Love to Eat on November 11, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    I love the short cups – perfect size when I’ve already had coffee at home! 🙂

  5. Allison on November 11, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Happy Veterans Day! Please thank your Pilot for everything he does and all the sacrifices you guys have to make for America’s safety!!

    I am so tempted to make a Starbucks run in a little bit to go grab my own red cup! ;p

  8. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola on November 11, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Omigosh- this pizza looks AMAZING! I think I will make it for dinner tonight! I love that gluten free crust too! I’ll have to buy some! Happy Veteran’s day to you and the pilot too!!

    Happy Veterans’ Day to you and the pilot!!!

  12. Laura on November 11, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Happy Veteran’s day! I know my husband has planned all the restaurants he’ll be hitting up for free meals today

    • Fitnessista on November 11, 2011 at 1:32 pm

      haha i love it!

    • Emily on November 11, 2011 at 2:15 pm

      My boyfriend and his company buddies have already planned the local diner for breakfast, Applebees for lunch, Outback for dinner, and the local ice cream shop for dessert!

  13. kathleen @ the daily crumb on November 11, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    yummm, that pizza looks delicious.

    thank you pilot, and all members of the armed services, for all you do.

  14. Emily on November 11, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    Happy Veteran’s Day, pilot! Thank you for serving!

  15. jen f. on November 11, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    Happy Veteran’s Day to you and the pilot! And what a delicious looking pizza. I think squash makes everything exponentially better. And bummer about the patio, but yes, points for not being glued to the couch!

  17. Lena @Fit on the Rocks on November 11, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    Everything on that pizza sounds absolutely delicious and really easy to make. Thanks for sharing!

  18. dynamics on November 11, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Thank you Pilot for all you do to keep us safe! A grand thank you to every single person that has a hand in keeping all of us safe!!! A thank you to the families of those whose significant other is away from them for so many days.

  19. Ali on November 11, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    I was JUST thinking how I had not seen Bella for a few posts! My Love wants a dog so badly, but he is so allergic! I don’t know what we are going to do! Nice pizza girl! I’m excited to see the fashion post later today.

    • Sara on November 11, 2011 at 7:25 pm

      Dog with super short fur? Or one of those exotic bald dogs?

      • Fitnessista on November 11, 2011 at 8:00 pm

        bella is hypoallergenic… get a poodle mix! 🙂

  20. Ilane on November 11, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    I never find frozen butternut squash in Austin 🙁

  21. Laura@mypurposefullife on November 11, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    This pizza looks absolutely phenomenal. I hope you and the Pilot are enjoying your day off together-boy do you deserve it. A special thanks to the Pilot today for doing so much for our country and the safety of people all over the world. Thanks to you Gina for being a supportive military wife. It would be tough-props to you both. 🙂

  22. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on November 11, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    That pizza looks PERFECT!

    And many thanks to Pilot for serving our country. When I thought of Veteran’s today and who I “know” who’s in the military serving currently, he was the first person who popped into my head.

    Hope you two have a great weekend.

  23. Katie @ Peace Love and Oats on November 11, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    I would eat that any time of the day! Looks delicious!

  24. Amy on November 11, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    Hi Gina – i remembered reading your post from the other day about how all of your workout capris still fit, but it’s too cold for them now, and I wanted to tell you how I’ve been making my capris work in this cold weather. I’m not pregnant, just too lazy to do my laundry and I am not wearing dirty stretched out jeans. I have a butt, you know.

    Anyway… My yoga capris aren’t long enough to wear with my boots by themselves (looks lame), but when I put a pair of chunky socks on over the capris, and then put the boots on (so you can see the socks still) – WARMTH! Looks cute, too.

    Maybe this isn’t news to you, but I thought I’d share. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 11, 2011 at 8:00 pm

      oooh i’ll have to try that!

  25. Joelle (On A Pink Typewriter) on November 11, 2011 at 7:19 pm

    That pizza is a great idea! Love bnut squash!

  26. Kiah on November 11, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    Yum! I’ve got some pizza dough ready to go in the fridge, and I cannot wait. The trick will be NOT eating the whole thing in one sitting 🙂

  27. Anna @ The Guiltless Life on November 11, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    LOVE that idea for a pizza! And I’ve seen that gluten-free crust mix before and wondered if it was good so glad to know it got your seal of approval :).

  28. Hillary on November 11, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    I made a very similar pizza last week and was drooling before it even came out of the oven. So dang good.

  29. Mindy on November 11, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Looks amazing!! I’m heading to Whole Foods tonight to make this pizza AND the pumpkin cheesecake yah 🙂 Did you cook the pizza once you put the cheese, marinara and arugula on it? Thanks!

  30. Katie on November 11, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    Thanks to the pilot for all he does to protect our country and to all that protect and serve! Those who have as well!

    Loving the pizza! I still miss the pizzas you, Lindsay, and I made that night! So good!

    I need to come visit you, maybe once the little princess comes!

  31. Melissa on November 11, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    A pizza stone is crucial for the BRM dough!

    I made a pizza Monday using the dough and cracked 4 eggs on top… words can’t even describe.

  32. Heather @ For the Love of Kale on November 12, 2011 at 8:20 am

    You had me at lasagna. 😉

  33. Bee on November 12, 2011 at 8:52 am

    Love those Starbucks cups! so fun and Christmassy!

    My bf made me a gf pizza last night since i’m gluten intolerant and it was so yummy! Will definitely be adding some b’nut squash next time though!

  34. Cat @Breakfast to Bed on November 12, 2011 at 9:15 am

    Being a military family isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it.

    • Fitnessista on November 12, 2011 at 9:49 am

      amen to that.

  35. Camilla @ TGIPaleo on November 18, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    I road tested a Paleo/Primal version of this pizza and it was amazing. Awesome job!!!
