Pizza Spaghetti Squash

Honestly when does pizza not sound good?! I took this classic and switched it up with one of my other favorites, spaghetti squash. I love spaghetti squash because it’s so versatile, makes a bunch so it’s perfect to prep, and it’s a great alternative to pasta. Not only does it work well for an easy prep but it lasts on the counter for up to a couple weeks so it’s great to have on hand no matter what!

There are a lot of ways you can switch this up or keep it as simple as I did here. If you want to add some sautéed veggies and make more of a “veggie pizza” then you can add that in after you’ve cooked the spaghetti squash and start to add in your toppings.

A few tips on cooking a spaghetti squash:

  1. I like to microwave it for 2 minutes prior to cutting it in half. These things are hard to cut and doing this makes it a little easier!
  2. You can use your Instant Pot to cook the spaghetti squash first, but I’ve found I just like to bake it!
  3. Always scrape out the seeds prior to baking it.

Reasons why I love cooking with spaghetti squash:

  • It lasts for a while on the counter! Pick this up at the grocery one week and end up not making it? No worries, it will probably still be good the next week!
  • So versatile! There are so many ways to switch it up
  • It makes a bunch so you can either each have the half of the spaghetti squash or make it and save for the rest of the week!

TIP: get your spaghetti squash at Trader Joe’s because they don’t do it by weight. So the bigger the better!
