BBQ Spaghetti Squash Pizza-8187

I know that I post way more Mexican recipes on here than pizza recipes, but pizza is definitely eaten on a regular basis in this house.  If my husband had his way we would be eating pizza every single night.  And, now that I think about it, I’m not sure I would mind that much either!  There is such thing as taco pizza afterall!

I used to be a traditional red sauce, cheese and veggie pizza kinda girl but after having BBQ pizza, it is all I ever want to eat.  And although I said that the smoked gouda cheese is optional in the recipe, who are we kidding?!  Smoked gouda is a must when making a BBQ pizza.  It gives the pizza such a great flavor and compliments the BBQ sauce perfectly.

BBQ Spaghetti Squash Pizza Steps

Spaghetti squash has to be my favorite winter squash!  It is so versatile and I feel like I can use it in everything.  I’ve roasted it and eaten it with veggie meatballs, I’ve put it on toast and melted cheese over it, I’ve added it to my eggs in purgatory and eaten it for breakfast, and next week I’m going to be sharing my favorite spaghetti squash chili recipe with you.  Basically, I just can’t get enough and this BBQ Spaghetti Squash Pizza has been a regular lately and I’m pretty sure I’m going to be enjoying it all winter long :)

The Best & Easiest Gluten Free Pizza Crust Recipe

BBQ Spaghetti Squash Pizza

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4
  • Category: Entree, Gluten Free


  • 1 ball of pizza dough or pre-made pizza crust, gluten free if necessary (see link above for my favorite gluten free pizza crust recipe!)
  • 1 small spaghetti squash
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, I used a mix of white cheddar and smoked gouda
  • Small handful thinly sliced red onions
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for topping


  1. Cut the top off of the spaghetti squash, cut in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Scrape the meat out of the squash with a metal spoon. It will come out in small pieces and you should get about 1 1/2 – 2 cups. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil, spaghetti squash and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook spaghetti squash until tender and cooked through, 10 minutes.
  2. Pre-heat oven to required pizza dough temperature. Pre-cook pizza dough if necessary. Spread the BBQ sauce on the pizza crust in an even layer and sprinkle on a small handful of cheese. Next, top with spaghetti squash, the remaining cheese and the red onion. Bake pizza until crust is cooked through and cheese is melted. Top with fresh cilantro leaves just before serving


You may want to decrease or increase ingredient amounts depending on the size of your pizza. My pizza was about 14 inches.

    Oh, MAN. This pizza is seriously the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen, Izzy! How totally genius of you to combine spaghetti squash with BBQ sauce in pizza form no less! And girl, your photos are totally stunning. Love, love, looooove!

      Haha, my husband would probably rather order a pizza in but gluten free pizza is so expensive! Thanks Natalie :)

    I’ve never had pizza with BBQ sauce and that needs to change! I love the sound of the spaghetti squash and smoked gouda, too — such delicious flavors. We could eat pizza every night too, and this is a great way to change it up!

      You so need to change that, Marcie! It is so good! I will never say no to regular pizza, but BBQ pizza is just so flavorful :)

    Oh yes, we are all about the pizza in our house too! Every week. But strangely enough, I’ve never tried it with BBQ sauce. I have to change that immediately! And I love the idea to use spag squash on top. I bet it adds the most amazing texture!

    Wow, this looks amazing! i have seen spaghetti squash become all types of things but this is something new. I’ll never forget the first time I cut open a spaghetti squash- I couldn’t believe how it actually looked like spaghetti!
