Bake the Flatbread
Place naan flatbreads on prepared baking sheet, brush with 1 tsp. olive oil, and bake 12-14 minutes, or until browned and slightly crispy.
Cook Butternut Squash and Walnuts
While naan is baking, heat a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and butternut squash to pan and cook 8-10 minutes, or until squash is easily pierced with a fork and lightly caramelized. Add walnuts to pan and cook 2-3 minutes to toast nuts slightly. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
Make the Pepper Pomegranate Glaze
In a small bowl, combine red pepper flakes (Start with ¼ tsp. of red pepper flakes, taste, and add more, if desired), pomegranate molasses, and agave nectar. Season it with a pinch of salt.
Top the Flatbread
Spread ricotta cheese on baked flatbreads and season with ½ tsp. Salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Top with butternut squash-walnut mixture and green onion. You can serve the flatbread immediately or pop it back in the oven for another 2 minutes to warm through.
