This Spaghetti Squash Crust is a grain-free alternative to traditional pizza and a great way to get more vegetables and fiber. Along with spaghetti squash, I used egg, mozzarella, and parmesan to bind everything together and seasoned it was garlic and oregano. This veggie crust is so tasty – it’s even good as a snack without the sauce and cheese on top.

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

The first thing you’ll need for this pizza crust recipe is cooked spaghetti squash. You can cook spaghetti squash in the oven or, if you’re pressed for time, in the microwave.

How do you cook spaghetti squash in a microwave?

To cook spaghetti squash in the microwave, pierce it all over with a knife and heat for five minutes. Then continue to cook in two-minute increments until the skin gives when pressed.

Once done, cut it open, remove the seeds, and scrape the squash out with a fork. Spaghetti squash has a lot of water, so you’ll need to squeeze all the water out with a clean cheesecloth or dishcloth.

How to Get Crispy Spaghetti Squash Pizza Crust

I tested this spaghetti squash crust recipe dozens of times to get it perfect! The thinner you make the crust, the crispier it will be. I also found that parchment paper helped get the crust crisper than a Silpat.

This recipe makes four 7-inch rounds, which makes them easier to handle. Before baking, spray the crusts lightly with olive oil spray and bake for 15 minutes until golden. Then carefully flip with a spatula and bake for about six minutes until crisp.

Variations:

  • Seasonings: Switch up the crust’s flavors by adding other dried herbs to the mix.
  • Toppings: Add your favorite pizza toppings to this crust. It’d be great with some pepperoni or sausage and veggies, like bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms.

  1. Made this tonight, it was so delicious! Thank you for such a great recipe! I wanted something fresh and low carb and this totally made my night! Will definitely make again! I had to bake it for quite a bit though to get it crispy but that’s fine, it was worth it!

    Flip hack: put a new sheet of parchment over them and flip the parchment then peel off the one on top (the original parchment you started with).

    This recipe calls for minced garlic in the ingredients but only mentions garlic powder in the instructions. Can you clarify?

      1. I used a plant based cheese. I don’t think it probably got as crisp but it was still very good. I’ve made it 2 times like this so I would definitely recommend it!

  4. Your repertoire of spaghetti squash recipes may include something close to mine but I didn’t see it
      I baked my spaghetti squash. I make the sauce with tomatoes, zucchini squash, onions, peppers, seasonings (to taste). Then I add cannelloni beans and or shredded chicken. Of course, Parmigiana Reggiano goes on top with fresh basil for serving. Delish!!

    Loved it.
    I did have to bake the crust longer than the recipe gave, but it was crunchy and very tasty.
    I was unable to access the WeightWatchers points. Not sure if it’s due to being WeightWatchers Canada.

  6. Thank you for all your recipes! I have a folder in my emails of all my favourites…hundreds of them…this one is going in it and I will try it this weekend 

  7. With the new WW plan, I want to be sure I’m doing this correctly…if I go to the WW Personal Points link, it’s showing the entire recipe as 1 serving, so I just need to change that to 1/4 per pizza, correct? Will all recipes be that way? As always, thanks for your recipes and connecting them to WW.

    Your recipes continue to amaze me. I can’t wait to get the ingredients and make this. I love cauliflower crust. Does it taste similiar? Can I use an egg replacer?

  9. What are the WW points for this deliciousness? Definitely trying this! I’ve lost 44 pounds last year and more than half the recipes I used were Skinnytaste, including some Home Chef! Thank You!

      1. Didn’t really like this one for family dinner. Alot of work for family pizza night! I’d rather sub tortillas.
