This version adds some nice crispy texture in the oven, and includes eggs for a quick hit of protein. It’s a great way of using that leftover bag of spaghetti sitting in your fridge (anyone else store leftover spaghetti in a bag? just me?)
So next time you over estimate how much spaghetti you need per person, this recipe has you covered.
The best part about this meal is it easily feeds a crowd, or you can enjoy leftovers for the week. Talk about easy lunches! Let’s cook.
“I made this recipe tonight. I love that it uses ingredients that are readily available in the pantry and fridge. With the hectic schedules that families have; a quick dinner solution is especially helpful. I used whole wheat pasta and a jar of tomato basil sauce. This is such a versatile recipe.” —Terri
Ingredients for Spaghetti Pizza
Super simple ingredients here – you should have the basics already in the pantry. It’s up to you if you want to run to the store for some fresh toppings.
- Spaghetti: Classic spaghetti is the best shape here. The long strands will join together well in the pan to bake into a”pizza crust”.
- Tomato Sauce: I use classic tomato sauce and add spices, but you can certainly grab (or make) marinara sauce instead. This spaghetti pizza is unhinged – there are no rules.
- Eggs: This is the glue that helps our pasta hold together! It also adds a bit of protein.
- Cheese: Parmesan also helps holds things together, and combined with mozzarella is the traditional pizza taste. Cheddar is a great option to add on top.
What Type Of Pasta?
Long pasta noodles are best for this spaghetti pizza recipe because they tangle together into a thick crust! You can use many types of pasta, like angel hair, bucatini, or even fettuccine.
How to make Spaghetti Pizza
This is SO easy – cook the pasta, mix everything together, and bake!
Step 1: Prep
Heat up the oven, and get a large stockpot of water ready to go. I always like to salt my pasta water for maximum flavor.
Step 2: Spaghetti
Cook according to the box directions. Make sure not to go past al dente as the pasta will cook more once it’s coated in sauce and in the oven.
Step 3: Stir
Stir together the drained pasta with the eggs and Park, and half the tomato sauce with half the mozzarella. This gets everything nice and coated.
Step 4: Assemble
Spread the coated pasta into your rimmed sheet pan. Make sure it has sides on it or you’ll have a mess on your hands (and oven!). Top with remaining sauce and cheese, and any fresh toppings you’d like.
Step 5: Bake
Bake until everything is golden and the cheese is melted. Cut into squares and serve!
Mexican Pizza: Stir in a drained can of black beans for extra protein, and use a Mexican blend cheese or sub more cheddar in for the mozzarella.
Meat Lovers: Add some vegan pepperoni on top instead of or with the tomatoes.
Make It Homemade: Put even more love into this pizza by making your own marinara sauce.
Low Carb: Make a low carb version of this recipe by using cooked spaghetti squash in place of the spaghetti noodles.
Leftovers: Store slices in an airtight container for grab and go convenience. You can reheat in the microwave, in a skillet, or the air fryer (you can use these directions for air frying leftover pizza). It’s even great cold while standing in front of the fridge (🙋🏼♀️).
This large nonstick sheet pan is one of my everyday favorites!
