Soft, chewy focaccia bread (a specialty from northern Italy) makes an easy, hearty base for tonight’s pizzas. We’re layering it with a classic tomato sauce, sautéed spinach, and two types of cheese: creamy ricotta and melty fresh mozzarella. Our vibrant seasonal side salad showcases roasted delicata squash (a tender variety with edible ridged skin) and crisp apple tossed with maple syrup, sage, and walnuts.

Top with ¾ of the maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and let stand for at least 2 minutes.

While the squash roasts, wash and dry the remaining fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Halve the bread. Tear the mozzarella cheese into bite-sized pieces. In a bowl, combine the ricotta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste.
