Spaghetti Squash Pizza Bowls

Happy fall y’all for now at least! We finally have some cool temps today and we are taking full advantage! It is so beautiful out and baby b loves to stroll and go to the park which is making exercise really fun these days! 

I am getting ready for a half in December but can’t quite get past a certain mileage with b in the stroller which is making things a bit difficult.

I am thinking I’ll need to get up earlier and get a few miles in before b wakes up, except this is my b study time and I need it more than anything else. How do y’all train with a teen-tine, leave me a comment below! 

Bowen and I have been waking up extra early and having our coffee and bible study its been a sweet time.

B just started a new job and things are changing up around here! Bless the Lord for this sweet time we are having with our happy boy. Okay that kind of gets you up to speed. I am not really back in the cookie world yet but am doing some classes the next few months, Ill keep you posted on how they go! 

On to the recipe….I talked Bowen into having spaghetti squash by adding in the word pizza, it’s all about presentation. Bowen will eat veggies as long as he doesn’t feel like I am trying to deprive him 😉 

We both loved this dish and it made great leftovers for lunch. I loved how quick and easy it was to put together. I actually made these in the morning then baked them off at supper time.

I rarely fix supper at supper time… I do not understand how moms can get dinner together at 5 o clock. Baby b needs my full attention, crawling all over the place then having his supper then bath and more play. Bowen and I get in a quick supper in the midst of Bowen’s bed time routine then one of us will clean while the other gives him his last bottle. Where on earth does actual cooking fit in?? Most days I cook in the am and try to make more than one meal at a time. How do y’all do it!??

I cooked the spaghetti squash in my insta pot-all you do is half the squash and remove seeds then add one cup of water to pot and manually set to high pressure for 7 minutes-perfectly tender squash noodles! I made mine with vegan cheese which was deliciously creamy but slightly sweet. That’s the one downside to daiya, it’s lacking that salty, nutty component you get from dairy cheese. Let me know if you make this recipe!

Pizza Spaghetti Squash Bowls

  1. 2 small spaghetti squash, halved
  2. 2 cups marina sauce*
  3. 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, or 2 cups vegan cheese
  4. Pizza toppings (I used appelegate pepperoni and crushed red pepper flakes)
  1. Cook spaghetti squash then using a fork, shred the inside of the squash. Add 1/2 cup marina sauce and 1/4 cup shredded cheese to each squash half, and gently give it a toss until all of the squash is coated with the sauce. Top spaghetti squash with pepperonis and more cheese.
  2. Place the baking sheet with the spaghetti squash pizzas in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cheese in golden brown and inside squash is hot. Enjoy!
  1. * I made my marina sauce by sautéing 1/2 cup onion, 3 cloves garlic and 2 celery sticks until soft then added crushed tomatoes, basil, garlic powder and a heavy pinch of coconut sugar and cooked for 30 minutes.
