Spaghetti Squash Pizza Crust! 

Swap out traditional pizza crust for our spaghetti squash pizza crust. We think it is actually pretty good!

Ingredients

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 salt

Instructions

  1. Cut squash in half. Scoop out seeds.
  2. Then coat squash in a teaspoon or more of oil. We used grapeseed oil. Bake at 375°F for about 45 minutes or until the inside is easy to shred with a fork.
  3. Scoop out insides and place them on a surface with paper towels. We used a baking pan with paper towels and cheesecloth to soak up the excess moisture. This step is necessary to attempt to mimic pizza dough texture.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F and include the baking pan.
  5. In a mixing bowl, mix squash, egg, and spices.
  6. Once the oven is hot enough, remove the baking pan, cover with parchment paper. Add squash mixture over a baking sheet in a thin layer. This step is essential because it will determine cooking time. Bake until edges are brown, approximately 20-30 minutes.
  7. Remove crust. Cover in a small amount of sauce, cheese, and favorite toppings — Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or as preferred and cheese has melted.
  8. Enjoy this recipe for spaghetti squash pizza crust!

We did not drain out as much moisture from the squash as needed to make it a thinner crust. The picture shown is more of a deep-dish pizza crust 🙂 However, it was just as yummy. We recommend draining as much moisture as possible and spread the squash mixture as thin as you’d like for the ultimate spaghetti squash pizza dough experience!
