When was the last time your kids asked for spaghetti squash? Probably never! But, pizza? Yeah, all kids love pizza! Next time your hungry brood gets excited for pizza night, instead of swinging by your local restaurant and grabbing a greasy, carb-heavy pie, I’ve got the perfect recipe for you to try: Spaghetti Squash Pizza!
Very similar to the oh-so-popular cauliflower crust, all you have to do is mix cooked spaghetti squash with an egg and some cheese. Then voila — you have yourself a delicious pizza crust that’s both kid and parent-approved. Play around with toppings to make this grain-free meal fit your preferences. Plus, you can get your kids involved by having them lay out their favorite toppings and help with the assembly. I imagine they’ll even get a kick out of helping make dinner. Watch as my two youngest kiddos, Ayla and Liam, help me make this healthified pizza pie!
