Spaghetti Squash Pizza

As a warning this crust will not get all crispy or rise like a pizza crust. It is more like a baked pasta type of dish that you can cut up with a pizza cutter in squares. We ate ours with a fork, but overall it totally filled our craving for pizza. It is a much healthier option and we really loved the flavor of the spaghetti squash crust. I'd defiantly make this for some gluten free guests!


Spaghetti Squash Pizza
adapted from this recipe

1 spaghetti squash
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt

1   preheat oven 375 degrees F, cut squash in half, scoop out seeds, and brush insides with oil
2   bake, cut side down, for about 45 minutes

9   then place oven on broil and broil for 2-4 minutes
10 pull out the crust and add on any toppings you'd like and bake for 4-6 more minutes

1/2 lb. chorizo sausage; sautéed in mini meatballs
mozzarella cheese

vodka tomato sauce:
1 can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp thyme
