Ingredients for Spaghetti Pizza
1. For the Crust
Our main ingredient for making the crust is spaghetti. Simply toss together the cooked spaghetti with flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt before baking and you will have a delish crust for your pizza.
For the spaghetti, it’s best to cook a fresh batch but feel free to use frozen or leftover cooked spaghetti for convenience.
2. For the Toppings
Our recipe calls for a 6-ingredient topping, including tomato sauce, smoked sausage, white mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, and basil.
This combination of toppings gently reminds us of a scrumptious pepperoni pizza, along with tender-crisp mushroom slices and creamy melted cheese.
If you don’t mind increasing the calories a little, feel free to add some bacon crumbs on top for an extra smoky flavor.
This spaghetti pizza recipe is fantastic for make-ahead meals.
You can pre-cook the spaghetti mix, sausages, and mushrooms, then freeze them in separate bags or containers. They should keep well for around 2 to 3 months. Just thaw them overnight before assembling all the ingredients to bake.
Storage and Reheating
Cut your leftover spaghetti pizza into slices before storing them in sealed bags or airtight containers. These slices can be kept refrigerated for 2 days in a cooling compartment or up to a month in a freezer.
For reheating, simply put each slice in a microwave or an oven.
If placed in a microwave, a refrigerated slice requires 1 minute at high temperature, while a frozen slice needs 2 minutes at medium heat.
If placed in a preheated oven at 350°F, a slice kept cool will cook for 3 minutes, while a frozen slice will cook for 5 minutes.
