Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • Pizza toppings, (whatever you like!) I use mini pepperonis and green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Crushed red pepper flakes for servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Microwave the spaghetti squash for 3 minutes to make it easier to cut.
  3. Cut the spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil over the cut sides of the squash, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place the squash cut sides down on a baking sheet, and bake for 40 minutes.
  6. When the squash is done, use a fork to scrape the insides, (they will resemble noodles!)
  7. Fill each half with some pizza sauce, (I used about ½ cup per side) and sprinkle generously with mozzarella cheese.
  8. Add your toppings! Put as much pepperoni and peppers, (or whatever else you want to use) on top of the squash. Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes to top it off.
  9. Bake an additional 20 minutes until the cheesy is golden and bubbly.
