I have been eating Gluten Free for almost an entire year and I can not believe how much better my overall health has become! It hasn’t been nearly as difficult as I thought it would be and honestly, I don’t even miss most of the things I used to think I could not live without – like PIZZA. I have discovered that Glutino’s Spinach and Feta brown rice crust pizza is very good and I just discovered this new recipe for pizza made with a spaghetti squash crust courtesy of Abe’s Market – interesting!
Gluten Free Spaghetti Squash Crust Pizza
- 4 cups cooked spaghetti squash (approx. 1/2 large squash)
- 1 cup part skim mozzarella, shredded
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp basil, dried
- 1 tsp oregano, dried
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 onion, diced
- 1/2 cup Mama Jess Garden Good Pasta Sauce (or use Bean Good)
- 1 cup fresh arugula
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, part skim, shredded
- Preheat oven to 400. Line pizza pan with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine spaghetti squash, mozzarella cheese, egg, egg whites, garlic, spices, salt and pepper. Mix together until well combined. Set aside for about 5 minutes. Drain any liquid forming at the bottom of the bowl. Press squash mixture evenly into parchment paper lined pan.
- Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes. While the crust is baking, saute the mushrooms and onion until mushrooms are soft and onions are translucent. Remove from heat. Remove pizza crust from oven when crust appears dry and golden.
- Spread Garden Good sauce over the crust. Sprinkle your onion, mushrooms and arugula over sauce. Top with cheeses. Return to 400-degree oven and bake another 10-15 minutes until cheese is bubbly and edges of crust are browned. Cool for about 5 minutes before cutting into the pizza. Tip: It may be easier to lift the parchment paper off of the pizza pan and place on cutting board.
I plan on making this over the weekend! What do you think – does it look good?
