My husband can inform you that I am a little pizza-obsessed. I pretty much try to speak him into pizza for dinner any possibility I get. It really is also a excellent barometer for if I’;m not feeling nicely. If you provide me pizza and I decline, I am quite, very (like maybe gravely) ill. 

Okay, not gravely ill. That’;s a dramatization. You acquired me.

Keeping me truthful. That is you guys.

So here’;s the point with this pizza: The crust is made from spaghetti squash. No flour. No butter. Just veggies and cheese, please. 

If you created spaghetti squash with me final time I posted about this tasty vegetable, then you have previously had something very equivalent. I love spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and cheese, so generating a pizza edition was just the next logical phase. Proper?

This pizza crust is quite tasty. I was impressed. The texture is not like thin crust pizza precisely, so do not go into it expecting that. It is different. But it is super scrumptious. Give it a try this week! xo. Emma
