Spaghetti Squash Pizza Bowls

I have been craving pizza ALOT during this pregnancy but unfortunately, pizza doesn't really love me back so I created this Spaghetti Squash Pizza Bowls recipe. I have been experimenting with simple and fun at-home pizza alternatives that are great if you are craving pizza but want something a little healthier. This Spaghetti Squash Pizza Bowl is not only delicious but actually really simple and easily customizable.

You will notice there are optional toppings to choose from as well as a tempeh bacon recipe if you're too lazy to make bacon like me! Make it what you want and go as crazy as you want with the toppings!

I personally love pepperoni, bacon, mushroom, peppers, and onion! Give it a try and let me know what combination you go with.
