Instructions

To make spaghetti squash crust:

  1. Option 1) Cut squash in half, remove seeds, drizzle with olive oil, bake in oven for 50 minutes at 400 degrees. Once done, scrape the insides with a fork to get "noodles".
  2. Option 2) Put in instant pot. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds. Put in Instant Pot with one cup of water. Set to high pressure for 5 minutes. When the timer goes off, release pressure. Scrape the insides with a fork to get "noodles".
  3. Wrap Spaghetti Squash noodles in paper towel or cheesecloth and wring out. It's important to get all the moisture out of the squash so that your crust can be sturdy and get crispy.
  4. Once you wring out the squash, put it in a bowl and mix with egg, onion powder, garlic powder and dried oregano. Add cheese to the mixture. If the dough isn't keeping together well, use the second egg.
  5. Once mixed, form into circle pizza shape on a greased baking sheet preferably covered with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, flip crust and bake another 10-15 minutes until done to desired level of crispiness.
  7. Once it's done, add your favorite pizza toppings and bake until cheese has melted and toppings are done!
