Seriously, what can spaghetti squash not do?!  It seems to be the most versatile vegetable (next to cauliflower).

The moment I saw this spaghetti squash pizza crust on A Beautiful Mess, I knew I had to make it.  That night.  It was so good, the next morning I was even craving it!

I’ve never actually made pizza from scratch, but I can imagine this recipe is 10x easier.  No yeast, no kneading, no heavy duty mixer necessary.  Just some squash, a microwave and eggs.

Spaghetti Squash Pizza Crust with Sausage, Kale and Fresh Mozzarella
adapted from A Beautiful Mess
INGREDIENTS:
1 large spaghetti squash
2 eggs
1 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup marinara sauce
1/2 lb ground pork sausage, cooked
2 handfuls of kale
12 cherry-sized mozzarella balls
DIRECTIONS:

  1. To cook the spaghetti squash, cut off the ends of the squash and pierce holes all over with a fork. Cook in the microwave for 12 minutes. Cut in half, remove the seeds and string out the squash insides with a fork.
  2. Preheat the oven with a baking sheet inside to 400F.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the spaghetti squash, eggs and seasonings.
  4. Once the oven is heated, remove the pan, cover with parchment paper, and spread the spaghetti squash mixture over the baking sheet in a thin layer.
  5. Bake until the edges begin to brown, around 40-45 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and cover with marinara sauce, sausage, kale, and mozzarella.
  7. Bake for another 10 minutes, or until the cheese is nice and melted.
