Gluten-Free Spaghetti Squash Pizza Crust


I’m OBSESSED with Pizza, so when I found this.. I thought, ALRIGHT! HEALTHY AAAAND I get to feed my obsession!

*To be honest, I haven’t made it yet, but I’ve heard REALLY great reviews!*

FIRST: You’ll want to get as much moisture out of the squash as possible. I know it doesn’t look like it, but those little strands are holding a whole lot of water. Watery squash makes for flimsy pizza.

And flimsy pizza is just plain sad.

Let me know if you make this!

1 hour 15 mins
1 hour 15 mins

Serves: 1 approximate 10-inch pizza crust
1 medium/large spaghetti squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon shredded parmesan cheese
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Carefully cut your spaghetti squash in half with a large, sharp knife. Remove seeds and stringy guts, and brush the cut sides of the squash with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place spaghetti squash, cut side down, on an aluminum-lined baking sheet and roast until tender, about 45-60 minutes.

2. To test if your squash is done, scrap the flesh with a fork. If the strands come off easily, it’s done. Let the cooked spaghetti squash cool for about 5 minutes, then scrape all the flesh into a beautiful pile of spaghetti strands. Taste and season with some more Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper if needed.

3.Measure out approximately 3 and ½ cups of spaghetti squash. Reserve rest for another use.

4. Wrap measured-out squash in a cheesecloth, clean kitchen towel, or several layers of paper towels. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible. The drier the squash, the more crispy the crust can get.

5. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the squash, egg, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, and season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Press squash in a thin, even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and form into an approximate 10-inch circle.

6. Bake at 400°F for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from oven, carefully flip, and cook for another 10 minutes.

7. Add desired toppings and bake until done.
