Pizza Spaghetti Squash
Recipe by Iowa Girl Eats at www.iowagirleats.com
1 medium-sized spaghetti squash
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper or whatever seasonings you like
1 cup pizza sauce or your favorite spaghetti sauce
Pizza topping: turkey pepperoni, olives, ham, peppers, green chillis, etc.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees; then, line a baking sheet with foil. Pierce spaghetti squash with a sharp knife; then, microwave on a plate for 1-2 minutes. Cut in half with the same very sharp knife. Scrape the seeds out with a spoon and place cut side up on the prepared baking sheet. Mist or brush with extra virgin olive oil; then, season generously with salt and pepper or whatever seasoning you would like. Bake 40-60 minutes or until the flesh shreds easily. Shred, leaving 1/4" squash around the sides of the peel so it doesn't collapse.
2. Top each half with 1/2 cup pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pizza toppings then return to oven and bake 8-10 minute or until cheese is melted.
