Butternut squash, kale, caramelized onion and soft cashew cheese pizza

This dish is like autumn on pizza dough.  It’s hearty, yet tastes rich, with the soft cheese in place of tomato sauce on the pizza base (but really, it’s not as rich as it tastes, it’s made with silken tofu — shh!, I won’t tell anyone if you don’t).
