Spaghetti Squash Pizza Casserole

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fun, relaxing & veggie filled weekend. The featured image above is all the recipes that will be posted this week!

img_1988We had an apartment full of pups on Saturday. No complaints as my dog was pumped to have some friends over. If anyone wants to train a dog & give it to me so that my dog can have a sibling, please feel free 🙂

Alright, Spaghetti Squash Pizza Casserole… slightly confusing name but pretty on point. This recipe is 100% vegan, made entirely of veggies, delicious & filling.

I call it a casserole b/c the spaghetti squash base in not crispy like pizza but thick & soft like a casserole. This is then cooked, stacked with plant-based pizza options, & cooked again. The absolute best thing about this pizza is that you could eat the entire pan & only feel healthy about it 🙂

So let’s get to the recipe so you all can have a bowl full of pizza inspired veggies tonight.
