Acorn Squash and Quesillo Pizza with Habanero Chile Oil — Ooni USA

Autumnal acorn squash and habanero chile oil are the celebrities of this fall pizza, with pickled crimson onions, cilantro and quesillo rounding out its flavors. 

Ooni’s U.S. headquarters are based mostly in Austin, Texas, giving us entry to some fantastic Mexican eating places. For this recipe, we took our cues from the sorts of seasonal and shocking dishes that Meals and Wine’s Greatest New Chef Fermín Núñez (@chiefnunez) seems at his buzzy close by restaurant, Suerte . Right here, we created a pizza that mixes peak season produce with tried-and-true Mexican taste mixtures. Roasted acorn squash and quesillo — a Oaxacan cheese that’s salty and stringy, and bears some resemblance to contemporary mozzarella — function the creamy base. Cilantro, pickled crimson onions and a habanero chile oil straight from Suerte’s playbook are the post-bake garnishes that carry every part collectively. 

Should you can’t discover quesillo in your grocery retailer, native Latin American market or on-line, sub in contemporary mozzarella or Monterey Jack, which can mimic quesillo’s melty goodness. 

The most effective time to search out acorn squash is late fall to early winter. Search for a squash that’s principally inexperienced, heavy and easy. A little bit of orange on the skin is nice, however a squash that’s too orange signifies overripeness. Should you discover nice squash, however aren’t fairly able to make this pizza, retailer it for as much as two months in a darkish, dry and funky place like a pantry or cellar.
